Very good points, Neuse.

^ My family member is overweight and it worries me a lot. At least they are willing to count calories. Gotta do it for the sake of health, if not anything else

Anyone else having issues with Starbucks adding too much syrup to their drinks or McDonalds using too much creamer in their iced coffee?

quit drinking about a month ago so that I could save money and lose weight for my Europe trip at the end of this month, and also just to give my liver a break for a bit before my annual physical. I coupled it with vitamins (liver detox, magnesium, multivitamin, and vitamin d) and probiotics to try to get my gut bacteria back to normal. I didn't make any major changes to my diet other than observing a Mediterrenean-style diet and really getting back into disc golf the past two months.

the health benefits I've noticed have been insane. My blood pressure went from pre-hypertension to perfect, even athletic levels. I feel fuller with less food and I've lost about 10 lbs so far. after two weeks I started seeing my bf% drop. I lost so much water weight in the first week that I went from wearing a L/XL to now being able to comfortably wear mediums again. My waist probably went from about a 33/34 to 31/32. my face/skin look night and day different. sleep is way more consistent and fulfilling. my anxiety went from being almost unbearable at times to basically gone and my overall mood/attitude is much better. I have more energy during the day and am able to concentrate and respond much more quickly and creatively.

friends have started to notice not only my weight but also improvements in my mood and just appearing more relaxed. I didn't mean to make any kind of stand against alcohol and don't intend to fully quit (going to be in Alsace and Lorraine wine regions when I'm abroad), but I had no idea how much it was affecting me on a daily basis. quitting really wasn't hard at all and I don't even give it a second thought except for when friends bring it up if I'm out on weekends. don't mean to make tww a blog, but this experience put a lot into perspective for me so I thought I'd share.

^ Try weaning yourself off the syrups and creamers so you can just drink black coffee. Healthier, cheaper, and no worrying about what to add to your coffee all the time. Key is finding decent quality coffee you can drink black.
