I am having very good success by cutting out the sugar, junk food, soda, and doing more exercise.
I now enjoy a kale,apple,banana,carrot, smoothie every day for lunch, Eat oatmeal for breakfast. Smaller portions at dinner time, mostly have chicken, fish, kale, beans, salad. After a while it becomes habit and easy.

+1 That is what I have found works for me. If I don't have junk food in the house, I don't eat it.

My problem is, if I don't have junk food in the house, I buy it...

That would work for me. Unfortunately, I don't follow through all of the time....To motivate me to stay with it, I tossed my larger-sized clothing. SO.....I'm hoping comfort will kick me into gear.

I'm totally into this idea though and you can count me in.

Ive found that the hardest thing to break is my italian way of thinking. Its not ok to eat half a loaf of bread, yes cheese is good but a whole wheel of cheese isnt, and proscuitto is something to be eating casually, not to be eaten all the time. LOL. Grandma planted the seeds a loooong time ago.
Same problem here, being from an Italian family, bread is the killer, even worse since I learned how to make my own Italian bread.

For Italian Nonni's food is love. That's why she always turned her back when you dipped that piece of bread into the pan of Sunday gravy. And you don't have to be from an Italian family. Just living in the neighborhood can be a killer.

All of us Italian's called it gravy, all others call it sauce.

Doing an exercise that you enjoy, is not even an exercise. It is fun.
