Main Points -
1) Avoid inflammatory foods and add more plant based food.
2) Don't do anything you hate or make drastic changes as those are not sustainable.
What is an "inflammatory food"? (and please don't say cheese :innocent: )

This is just geared toward autoimmune, it covers a lot of what we discussed.

And a quick additional reading.

No mention of cheese, however i did research some of it and dairy is kinda on the list. Luckily i dont do much dairy, so a switch to almond or soy milk wont be hard

A quick update as I have been traveling quite a bit this month....

I am back home and sleeping in my own bed, it is as glorious as I imagined!

1) I have stuck with meat only once a day and keeping the portions around 400g when I do. Avoiding Milk & Cheese for the most part - I have had cheese on a salad and a few other things, but keeping it in check.
2) On the plane, I set my meal preference for strict Vegan. I hate airplane food anyway, so worth giving it a shot. IMO, it was superior to the beef or chicken usually offered, most of the food had more flavor as 2 of the meals were Indian and once of them a spicy hummus. I drank water and tomato juice on the plane.
3) When given the option, I ordered fish vs other meats.
4) I have yet to feel hungry.
5) This is the big kick in the nuts - with jetlag, I am not sure if I feel better or not physically, however... I have felt less cloudy mentally when I first wake up. Again... jetlag cannot be 100% dismissed, but I am hopeful.

Lastly... in roughly 2 weeks time without weight being the focus, I have dropped 6.2kg, from 107.2 to 101kg.
Not one pill or shortcut (shakes etc) - just moving to majority plant based food & removing alcohol.
For reference - I always give up alcohol from Jan to March, with no other changes, I usually lose about 6kg in 3 months.
And lastly, due to travel, I did not exercise nearly as much as I normally would.

Unscientifically -
I am not sure where the weight is lost.
My pants feel more comfy, but I have not lost a ton around the waste.
My pee is still clear and I am drinking tons of water (did that before too) so I am not dehydrated.
In the mirror, you can tell a little bit my shirt hangs more than it used to, however again, it isn't obvious when looking in the mirror without a shirt on.
I think I just lost a little everywhere and it has added up to a bigger than expected amount lost.

Weight is lost in the initial stage with water loss. An active lifestyle and maintenance of diet will maintain the loss with even a bit more.

Good on ya. Keep it up, or rather keep it off!
