I have done well thus far eating primal, currently down 16 lbs, but know I would do much better if I could separate myself from the nectar of the gods. I love my beer, especially those lovely brews from Belgium, but would love to know how others have fought off this demon. I have done well to fight off smoking and some think I am asking too much of myself to quit smoking, reduce my drinking and start eating well all at once. I have had only a few issues eating right and quitting smoking but I vary greatly on my drinking. I can go from zero to nine beers though normally 3 or less which is a lot less than my previous consumption. I would appreciate any input from others who have decided to use the Primal diet to fight this demon.
