    For me it has been potatoes. Have always tried to keep my weight down. Always hovered around 12 stone. Over the last 6 months i have cut out potatoes and gone with rice instead. Am know under 11 stone. Still like a biscuit with my tea. A few beers. Have slowed down on red meat. Eat a lot of chicken. And feeling good.

    Carbs are the issue, mainly white carbs, potatoes and bread. I've lost a lot recently due to no appetite from pain meds, but I've stopped eating carbs to the usual extent.

    Leave the puffer fish alone. Salmon, lean and mean.

    Not being able to get out on the bike and bread usually do it for me.

    Middle age and getting paid to stare at a computer screen don't help. Did I mention the vienetta? :shy:

    Beer for me. I've had no alcohol for two months now and been eating lots more fruit and veg, resulting in a loss of 5kg. Beer belly is still there but there's less of it.

    Never been fat but did get myself a rather unsightly and somewhat unshiftable beer gut a decade ago, for the same reasons highlighted above... then i got a job running around Aldi and the beer gut was gone in six months. :dance: ...only downside is I'm now struggling to find jeans with a 30" waist and a 34" leg :blush:
