A few months ago I made some changes to how I eat. I went vegan for two weeks and while it was difficult I did lose 10 pounds. Now I'm just trying to eliminate red meat, dairy, and reduce other meats. I'm not going extreme or anything but the longer I keep with it the easier it gets. I haven't had milk, butter, or cheese in about a month. Beef has never been my favorite meat anyway and pork is easy to get away from since it's mostly breakfast meat. I now eat fish about once a week as apposed to once every few months. I'm still not a huge fan but that's mostly because good fish is hard to find. Whole Foods has fish they fly in from the ocean every day that's never been frozen. It cost about the same as prime rib but damn if it isn't the best fish I've had in the middle of the country. Cheap fresh fish will never be an option in Colorado. I plan to continue this for 1 year and then reevaluate the situation. If I break it wont be from desire but from convenience. I've also reduced my intake of bread, artificial sweeteners, and added sugar. That's actually way less convenient than giving up meat which I suppose says something about the american diet. If you get a chance I'd suggest watching Forks over Knives.
