    Nothing. I still eat the foods that I love I just eat less of them. I've done that before where I've had my list of "NO" foods and I was never able to lose weight and keep it off. So now I prefer to look at this as a lifestyle change instead of a diet and if I want to eat a chocolate-chip-cookie, I eat one. I'm certainly not going to go the rest of my life without them so why deprive myself now?

    I just reduced the amount I eat of specific items; such as bacon. Four slices three or four days a week were not a problem. Now I have one slice with whatever else I'm having for breakfast. I'm happy with minimum as opposed to none at all. It's working for me as is another example, coffee, cream and sugar each morning. I've probably only had 3 cups entire month of February and only 1 cup so far during March. Less food is filling; probably always was!

    Where did you hear that bread stays in your system for 3 months?
    This is what I keep asking in my head. It sounds like absolute nonsense. I mean each to their own: don't eat bread if you think it's helping you. But saying something stays in your stomach for three months is nonsense. That's like when we tell kids if they swallow gum it will stay in their belly for seven years. Rubbish.


    I don't cut anything out, I've just cut back on things. Whereas before I drank soda all day long I now only allow myself one a day and am trying to scale it back to one a week or when we go out to eat. Everything in moderation.

    ^^^^^
    This. What the crap?

    I haven't cut out any food or drink, just modified the frequency with which I indulge in particular ones. What I have cut out is thinking like a "fat person." If I indulge in something, it's with the expectation that I will return to my normal weight loss plan soon. Before I started losing weight, I didn't consider the consequences of anything I ate.

    I googled it. This thread was the first thing that came up. Everything else says that bread stays good in the fridge and freezer for 3 months but that's all I found.

    Bread in your system for 3months? :noway: Now that's twaddle.

    I haven't cut anything out to lose weight - I mean I'm veggie anyway and there isn't a huge amount of veggie fast food so not much to cut out there. I don't like fizzy drinks much so didn't have to cut them out. I avoid wheat as much as possible as it causes my IBS to flare up plus I get really moody on it (don't know why) - doesn't mean I don't eat bread/pasta though. I just eat gluten-free equivalents. :laugh: And I keep my dairy to a minimum for similar reasons, gives me chronic wind (which really stinks :embarassed: ) - plus there's an ethical argument to that which plays in my head. Most artificial sweeteners (plus stevia) taste foul to me so I'm quite happy sticking to agave nectar/maple syrup/honey/sugar in all it's forms :happy:

    If I tried to cut stuff out just to lose weight I'd be living off lettuce. Bleurgh. :laugh:

    Vanilla Dr. Pepper--which I LOVE, as well as all other sodas (although I had a drink of my son's Mr. Pibb the other day while at the Wildlife Park). I haven't had soda (other than few sips on Sunday) since January 1.

    Being quite a picky eater it's hard to cut out things I enjoy from my diet since I'd be left eating almost the same exact thing day in and day out.

    The only thing I've totally cut out of my diet is soda. I was drinking 4+ cans of it a day before I stopped. Just out of a morbid curiosity I set up an excel sheet to keep tabs on just how many calories that would have added up to. As of today that is 75,996 calories and 38 lbs of sugar I haven't consumed. Scary! That is almost a quarter of the total calorie deficit needed to hit my weight loss goal. Now I just drink water.

    I've moderated my fast food intake as much as I can. I've switched my white breads to whole grains. I also consciously eat more fruits and vegetables when possible, turning them into my go to options instead of last resorts. I still eat junk sometimes but I feel better knowing I'm working it into my calories, portioning it and making up for those splurges with being good 90% of the time.

    I cut out soda, cheese, butter. Soda was the big one. Now I brew iced tea and add a couple slices of lemon. I take that to work with me. Also I pack a lunch...usually leftovers from dinner. And I eat sliced cucumbers as a snack... it's very filling, and satisfies that urge to CRUNCH on something!
