    Welcome mate and good luck with it
    yr actually about the same height weight as me when i started (im 6ft 3 and was 108 when i started)
    Im now 5 weeks in and 103.5 - have lost a belt size and a half .. and feeling much better .. im also doing marks free weights program and the progress there has been pretty good to (from a low base)

    listen to the advice here and cold turkey the coke zero, and if u do the straight switch off carbs and sugars then be prepared for a couple of weeks of feeling like crap - its called carb flu and its horrible ... but it does pass
    theres a primal aussie group u can find in the grps section ....

    good luck with it all

    cheers

    Thanks Neil

    Yeah im going to be prepared for feeling like crap. maybe just walking to the gym and 45 mins weights will be enough to make me tired as hell from having limited carbs or sugar. Well done on the progrss mate your almost under the 100kg mark. Keep up the good work

    When I quit drinking Coke, I switched to sparkling water with a bit of lime juice for flavour. Found that a really good substitute.

    OK Jason. Accountability time - how much Coke* did you have? really.

    *before you take a literal approach to my question and answer none, by Coke I mean any version of Coke, Pepsi or you-know-what-I-am-talking-about, regardless of whether its sugar free, aspartimine free, caffiene free, colour free, Max free or bubble free....

    JJ,

    +1 Ditto to that.... Just say NO to all grains, Just say NO to all Sugars, Drink water, tea, coffee. Put lemon juice in your water to spice it up.

    Eat liberally from meat, eggs, fish and fruits, veggies & nuts. Carry a bag of Almonds with you at all times, so if you get uncontrolled cravings, just eat a handful of Almonds and it will go away.

    Please read my links below the line about grains, and sugars.

    We know you can do this,
    Grizz

    Jay, unless my eyes are deceiving me, I came across some of your YouTube videos when I discovered PB. Chin-up and find some of the enthusiasm through these boards.

    We have an ‘all you can drink’ fridge-full of soft drinks at work and in my whole time here (approaching 2 years) I have never taken a can. It’ll be hard for you, no doubt, cravings will be brutal; after all it is an addiction. Ride through the storm, you’ll be glad you did.
