Try boiled cabbage instead of pasta!!!

You will not notice the difference!!!

I use Zucchini (I have a gadget that cuts it so it comes out like pasta) or spinach or cauliflower rice. Cauliflower is the most versatile vegetable ever! I make pizza bases and wraps out of it and mash to put on top of shepherds pie or vegetable bakes.

Definitely agree on the carbs. We eat way more than we need.

I follow the paleo way of eating, which basically means no grains. It is also not just about eating meat like people often think. If it's good enough for Gary Ablett and LeBron James, then it's good enough for me!

Had Cauliflower rice last night , with some curry and veges
I was apprehensive about having it
Tasted a lot better than I thought it would
Will be having it again in other meals as well

Good work mate

Yeah I found its fine with any meal where you have ample dive which creates most of the taste anyway

Got down to 94 two weeks ago but work has been shit so exercise has gone out of the window due to a lot of late hours. I'm basically trying to cut out snacks and exercise every day. To stop snacking is a bit hard when working at a hopsital and they provide bicuits and afternoon tea everyday. I need to develop some better self discipline - but I love food!!!.

Need anything to get me motivated, I'd be happy to donate to a charity (my favourite is the Glenelg Footy Club) to get this adipose tissue off.....

Well got there in the end, When i say I'm gonna do something nothing stops me until I do.......

Xmas/New year just gone, I won't lie Iie I nudged 100 kg,after sitting at 94-98 kg for the past 10 years.

Got back into more regular exercise and eating less and hey ho down to 88 kg now.

Next target 85 kg by Xmas

8 weeks of:
1. Alcohol only one day per week (If I have to have it 2 days in a week, its zip the next week)
2. No carb / sugar diet (bacon every morning for breakfast =P~ )

Lost 7 kgs and cholesterol down by a full point despite the carnivore diet
At that rate, another 8 weeks to go and I'm at my optimum weight

BMI says I'm still obese
I would have to be 61 to 82.5 kgs to be "healthy". I'd have to have no muscle at all to make that weight

As a (semi-retired) doctor and a cynic, I note that the literature telling us what healthy weights (or healthy cholesterol figures) should be has moved toward ever lower figures since so many medications have been on the market that claim to lower cholesterol or lower appetite - below levels that never even bothered life insurance companies in the 1980s. Old ideal weight charts used to quote three ranges for small, medium, and large framed individuals, using wrist bone circumference to determine which range to use - they no longer exist.

I suspect that reduced University funding for research and the ongoing need to "publish or perish" may drive some academics to accept funding from sources that want a little selective data sifting for their money...

I'm reminded how in the late 1980s and early 1990s Cardiologists would not eat eggs, or let their families do so, because of their cholesterol content, but we now know the cholesterol in eggs is fully broken down in the body, and there is a factor in eggs that acts to reduce our own cholesterol production.

Started my quest to lose weight this year, got down from 90.6 to 80.3 and was doing pretty well, then got a hernia. Have been stuck just walking for the last 3 months, and the next 9 months while I await surgery. Went back out to 84.9, now down to 84.0 again. Slow progress, but getting there. Initially hated the idea of getting up early to exercise, but now am enjoying getting up at 5 and heading out for a walk
