And I like how no one comments here but if you post "How do I lose weight?" Everyone will tell you to eat low fat, cut calories, etc.

I'm shocked there hasn't been an argument.

I've lost 60 pounds in the last 4 months but cutting sugar, grains and dairy out of my diet (paleo). I feel fantastic. Eat a sh*t ton of fat and don't monitor my calories much :P

That's awesome! I've just started transitioning to paleo actually! Its a work in progress because I live with my ILs and they are used to eating crap, but just eating like this 60% of the time I've lost 5 lbs. And I feel so much better!

Thats awesome. You're going to feel so good. Everything has improved. My mood, my health, my weight. Best thing I ever did for myself.

How did you handle your sugar cravings? I cut out sugar one week ago. It's still hard. I don't like chocolate, at least.

will power.  i would also drink a huge glass of water and that worked most of the time.  the sugar cravings go away after about 2wks.

Thats a long time- good for you.

I've had maple syrup and a little agave since Sept 25th 2012. I get seriously messed up from it :(
