    I started my quest for health back in 2008 when weighing 243lb, I'm 5.10. Since that time I have had peaks and troughs; current weight 186.2. where I seem to be stuck. My body seems to be telling me that the next issue I need to deal with is Red Wine. On average 3/5 glasses a day, after that it's cheese and crackers 3 times a week.

    Here goes.

    I agree. Wine has been an issue for me in the past. I have stopped it, due to my commitment to weight loss, and the fact that I am sensitive to it will give me an incentive not to drink much of it in the future.

    My body gives me clear signals not to consume a lot of stuff that isn't all that good for me. It must be hard for people who don't get punished after misbehavior.

      The biggest problem with both the wine and the cheese is I get no adverse signs

        So your motivation needs to come from within. Focus on your goal.

          No wine may need to be my next frontier. I usually drink 2-4 glasses per night. Recently I have been going for 2-4 days without any. I feel like should doa 30 day stretch. I want to see if avoiding wine improves my sleep.

            Wine was a huge weakness for me. I didn't drink a lot, but I sure did like a glass after a long day of work. I've stopped buying it and just purchase it on "special occasions" (like if I make a super-fancy dinner for me and hubby). I drink a nice herbal tea now in the evenings, and that's been a nice substitute.

              couldnt you lose the crackers? - empty grain based carbs after all, replace them with a bit of ham or apple. you could reduce the wine to 1 or water it.

              When I'd had enough of the grain and starched based 'diabetic eating for health' diet (eating for health, my ass!) my weight was 242.5 lbs. On starting primal- 18th April 2013 weight : 238.1.
              27th July 2013. weight after 100 days 136.9 weight lost 101.2lb ; that's 105.6lbs since I stopped the 'diabetic eating for health'

                For wine, I have at most one bottle a week (forced to by finances as well as a finger-wagging spouse). It's an interesting thing to be weighing up - a second glass tonight, or save it for later in the week? I got an antique sherry glass for when I wanted a bit but not a full wineglass.

                    And yet there are some really lean people who drink wine whaaaaaaaaat. The answer is more exercise.

                      Yes, everyone is DIFFERENT. If one is in the middle of cracking down on their weight loss, cutting out wine or severely cutting it down can really help. Just depends on the person. I have noticed it can slow my own loss down. Don't put everyone in the same damn box. I just so sick of that crap on this forum.

                          Wine and cheese aren't necessarily your problem. I have 2 glasses (one third of a bottle) of red each night, sometimes more. I have it with cheese each night 1-200 grams. No crackers - no need. Just the wine and cheese. Weight has been steady around 72kg (I'm 180cm) for over three years.

                          Its easy to blame moderate consumption of wine and/or cheese but you may have to look elsewhere. You've said you have crackers. Where else do you fall shy of compliance to the ten primal laws?
                          Four years Primal with influences from Jaminet & Shanahan and a focus on being anti-inflammatory. Using Primal to treat CVD and prevent stents from blocking free of drugs.

                            Eh, in this case, I don't think its trolling. I think it actually believes itself. And because it thinks that way, that is the ONLY way.

                              Yeah and it doesn't help others. So what are you so mad about? You said it yourself. Know what tends to work to break a plateau more than some gimmicky food elimination? Moving around more. I don't mean more Crossfit. I mean more walking. Less time on your ass.
