I gave up rice. I lost weight but eating has never been the same. (Asian)
It's like a happy kinda sad kinda angry kinda glad feeling.

16 Dec
Drink 7 seven glass water everyday
27 Mar
What do you eat instead of rice? its hard to imagine an Asian meal without it.
27 Mar
When I went to Thailand every course like fish or meat had a little portion of rice with it. In Italy we eat bread instead, which I didn't see in Asia.

You can make a shredded cauliflower rice substitue

Sandy. I drink more than 1.5 ltrs of water a day.  But I guess the satisfaction feeling is more of a psychological thing. I guess.

18 Dec

Everybody is better than me, I see :D My friend suggested to always keep a water bottle nearby, where you can see it, so it will become easier to find myself thirsty! Maybe it works. I should try.
Usually I drink less than 3 glasses per day...sometimes I also eat without drinking at all.

And thinking about giving up...I gotta stop eating chocolate. I can't resist. If I have chocolate at home it's a disaster! LOL

18 Dec
I have a big bar of lindt ( a chocolate) from 14th October and I haven't had a piece of it still, and that's my favorite chocolate
06 Jan
I am software developer. My routine of eating is so disturb. I feel I cannot get the same fitness which is about 1 year ago. But hope for the best
18 Jan
I gave up sweets twice - each time for six months straight. It actually was so hard but now I barely eat them anyway. You adjust.

I haven't given up anything, i love to eat, but i have cut down on how much i indulge in things i know aren't good for me or my waist line.  Its whatever i want in the morning, but then after that whole grains, raw veggies, and lean meat the rest of the day. With better eating habits and regular exercise i can justify the occasional night of drinking and eating rich food.

As far as water i aim for 3 liters a day or more if i can.

I gave up pork a few years ago. I used to drink half a gallon of water a day (no joke) and now drink much less and need to drink it more again! I have never had sodas or alcohol at all but I know those things tend to cause weight gain and knew people who lost weight when giving them up. Hope all goes well!!

Havent really given up much in way of food. Just cut it down...

Been off the booze for about 3 weeks now and feeling awesome. Was drinking 4 to 6 beers a day prior. Weight has dropped by 4kg in that 3 weeks.

I am lucky enough to have a very manual job in landscaping and this def helps to keep the weight off.

Currently weighing 89.7 and 183cm tall... Goal weight is 85kg at this stage then maintain between 80 and 85kg while building muscle

I guess I have a bit of an advantage. I don't gain weight easily at all. But I've given up sodas. My addiction, Sprite. Although one occasionally is fine. I was drinking pretty much the whole 2 liter in a day

I gave up on meat long time ago, then on Alcool, cigarettes and e-cig! I gave up on eating too much tne evening because I didn't eat all day long, now I still don't eat all day long but I eat a little the evening...kind of replaced my meals with work outs as it is the only effective way to loose weight with my metabolism! Lastly, I gave up temporarly on running because I had both knees injury due to too much running with flat feets...

29 May
went down from 91 to 72.5 kg in 1 year and 3 month. Alcool, was the first third of it, changing my food with changing country, 1/3 of it and the last third is work outs
04 Aug
Isn't that too much not eating the entire day? :o
04 Aug
Increasing my wirkouts quantity and intensity forced me to eat finally. I usually eat fruit only during day but lastly added some protein (egg or seafood) sonce I started lifting weights

As a beginner, im giving up that extra comfort time i had in exchange of sweating off. Im gradually eliminating softdrinks/sodas. For the moment...that would be all. Im still pumping for mamas milk for my LO. No lite diet yet.

I gave up on anyone who said I couldn't. I gave up on everyone who no longer strived to grow and progress and in turn push me to do the same. I gave up on neysay'ers ,sycophants, and leeches. I gave up on any part of me that didn't belive in myself. I shook it off and kept grinding forward.

And McDonald's.

I'm not really giving up any specific foods, just, as others said, really cutting back on the bad stuff. Totally giving up chocolate or ice cream or fries just won't be sustainable for me - it will work in the short term but not in the long. Certain times of the month especially just demand dark chocolate and salt. So instead, I'm keeping them for extra special occasions and really cutting back portions. Having only a few squares of the bar instead of the whole thing, replacing full fat, full sugar ice cream for low fat, low sugar frozen yogurt (I found a dutch chocolate one that's to die for). Instead of supersizing my McDonald's when I treat myself, I go for the smaller portion of nuggets and a small fries, and I treat myself to it much less often, and manage the other foods I eat that day to offset a bit. Maybe at some point I'll be ready to kick these things entirely, but right now, I know that if I tried that, I'd just be miserable and would wind up binging and then hating myself, and feeling crappy any time I ate out with my family at non-diet-friendly restaurants. This way, I can have my treat once in awhile without destroying my calorie goal, I don't feel deprived, and I can keep the cravings manageable.

I AM trying to give up the negative self-talk, the laziness in the mornings, my dislike of feeling hot and sweaty from exercise and my self-consciousness in being active around other people. I want to leave behind forever all the crap that built up over years of feeling incompetent and humiliated in phys ed class and be able to go to a gym and work out without letting 17-year-old me control my fitness forever. That's what I want to give up!
