The Champagne of Beards
I haven't given anything up, just massively cut down on a lot of less-than-optimum stuff.
The hardest? My mother's home-made cakes especially fruit cake. But I have a couple of slices a year so i'm still happy.
cereal. ugh. now I want cereal.
chocolate. my tummy doesn't get along with chocolate.

I'm doing this because I'm worth it - because I'm worthy - because I love myself.
Goals: Healthy mind, healthy body, happy soul.
I haven't given anything up. I eat certain things way less often than I used to, but if I really want pizza from that amazing wood fired place or some organic natural peanut butter, I eat it. unless you have a serious medical issue and absolutely must avoid a certain thing, it really isn't the end of the world to eat if every so often. hell, mark's actual primal blueprint diet calls for 80/20 adherence. so for every 20 meals you eat each week, 4 of them can be non-primal friendly and you can still consider yourself perfectly primal (by definition)
that being said, I make a point of avoiding wheat, soy, and veggie/seed oils about 99.999% of the time

Pie. Apple pie. Chocolate cream pie. French silk pie. Peach pie. Blackberry pie. You get the idea.
The only thing I have truly given up is making sourdough: bread, pizza dough and focaccia. I will occasionally eat some if i'm somewhere that has exceptional quality but there's no where near me that meets that standard so it's pretty easy to avoid.
