Hi! I am on day 2 of the BSD and so far, so good. (Lost 2lbs) I have tried many diets (juice, high protein, keto, Omni, 5-2, vegan, paleo . . .) and have had some success, but nothing like the amazing success others report. I usually hit a plateau, then get frustrated and lose it. Yet, my bigger issue is the “white wine”. I can easily drink a bottle in the evening and don’t suffer too much. I am sure this is the reason for weight loss stalls – my liver is compromised.
I am certain there is a link between alcohol and blood sugar control – both binge issues for me. It is impossible for me to have just one glass of wine – how can anyone just drink one glass? Although I usually avoid carbs, except easily weaken when travelling or grandchildren visit. I think I tend to drink/weaken while waiting to eat dinner – so now I will fix and eat diner at 6 p.m. That helps a bit.
I am hoping that the 800 BSD will be just the ticket. I found the keto diet good for appetite control, but I enjoyed the food too much and although my symptom reduced, my body fat did not.
I am attempting to go alcohol free for the 8 weeks and perhaps indefinitely. And, I am hoping that the 800 BSD will help with my tendency to over eat.
My husband has absolutely no interest in dieting whatsoever and would never dream of giving up, beer, bread, pasta or any of the finer things in life. So, I am here looking for support, particularly re the drinking. I worry that my issue may be taboo and hopefully I am OK to be here. My answers to the quizzes, were odd, because this issue of drinking did not feature.
Very hopeful and wishing all of us great success. Feel free to contact me and sorry if I am rambling.
