Pizza, enchiladas, wine, now maybe coffee. I've lost my taste for it. It used to be the first thing i needed in the morning. Now one cup sort of makes me gag. Guess its a good thing?

Also cannot eat huge portions. Will generally order the mini version or childs plate of a dish.

Do not really diet, just do not over eat. Also back on my exercise routine. Do not want to get fat. Or not fit into my clothes.

I have given up nothing, but I have been a healthy eater for nearly 20 years now (I had gained 50 pounds after my parents moved in with me while they were building their house). I will never allow myself to back to that shape. No thanks. I feel SO much better at a healthy weight.

I’ve been a regular member of a gym since I was 27, and fitness is a very high priority for me.

I mostly drink ice tea and flavored water. Unfortunately that means that I had to give up my favorite wine, a Moscato 'd Asti.

I also had to give up the cruciferous veggies..... broccoli, cauliflower and Brussel sprouts, all of which I loved.....all for the same reason.
Could you just let the carbonation go flat?

I have started following ketogenic eating style as I kept gaining weight even on low carb. I have lost a little and feel better. Less fluid retention, sleeping better, more energy.

I gave up salt, at least as much as I could, about a year ago and was able to get off my blood pressure medication.

I haven't HAD to give up anything but my eating habits have changed. I am less attracted to foods that are bad for me. I am less attracted to meat, for various reasons. I used to eat to the point of "stuffed"; I no longer do that.


I am still trying to lose weight at age 63, I have lost 10 pounds this year so far. Almost back down to a 25 BMI.

I drink pretty much exclusively beer and the getting up to pee is worse than the alcohol itself. I barely get to sleep, then it's pee time again.
Just a reminder....you are not a senior.......far from it. I don`t know why, you would want to be one. Go out and play, with the other kids.

I always hung out with the older crowd when i was in school.

Even now i still do. Everyone i hang out with is at least 70!

People my age - late 50s - still want to act like they are in high school.

So let him stay!

Cheese and some other dairy products. A2 milk is good and a great substitute.
