I did this for about 30 days from late December to Late January. I felt better and lost 12 pounds. I've been maintaining my weight since then after a minor back injury took me out of the gym for a few weeks but will be hopping back on the no junk food train.

For those who enjoy pop or soda, try switching to carbonated water with a little lime or lemon juice. It takes a couple days to get used to it, but so much better for you than any soda.

After a while it just becomes your life, and you wonder how all these people around you could possibly subsist on sugars and refined carbs and vegetable oils.
It's like being reborn as an alien on earth. In a very good way.

Another tip for a sweet tooth is to melt coconut oil and mix in raw Cacao, pout it into little silicone moulds and let it cool to room temp. You may need to mess with the ratios based on your tastes, but they make awesome snacks. Cacao and coconut also help wit hunger cravings.

Rice is good for you, especially brown rice.

Sugar and especially sugar from high fructose corn syrup is disgusting and something to be avoided.

Yeah, I eat rice too I don't think it's as bad as having french fries or fruit juice. I've read many times fruit juice is as bad or worse than having a coca cola can.

I stopped eating junk food a while ago, I kinda don't like to eat out much anymore. If you knew the quality of the food they buy you wouldn't.

Most places buy veggies/meats/chicken from China, I wouldn't want to eat that as most food from there is contaminated. And that's talking about restaurants, I wouldn't imagine what's inside of a Wendy's meal.

I prefer buying organic vegetables, organic chicken, rice, etc. and just cooking my own food.

I stopped eating candies a few weeks ago (though I failed this weekend and had a few cookies/cake). But I'm not craving them as much as I used to, I can walk into Walgreens and walk hrough the candy isle and not be tempted. I used to buy one or two snickers bars every day.

I stopped drinking soft drinks a few months back, and I'm now on day three of no sugar. Feeling clearer, and sleeping better for it.

I'm drinking about three to four litres of tap water a day. I've been meaning to buy a water filter, just haven't gotten to it yet.

I still need to clean up my diet, but it isn't that bad. I just need to add more veg, and reduce portion size. Then adapt as I go.

My problem is I like beer, I don't know how to give that up. Also, when I say I like beer, I'm down to drinking every other weekend.

Try Michelob Ultra, it's passable to drink with very low carbs.

I've cut soda almost completely out of my diet. The only times I'll have it are if I'm at work, then I'll cut it with the cup being 80% water. Otherwise I'll use concentrate syrups, which aren't as bad but still I limit them. Tea and coffee are good alternatives, I just don't have a way to brew tea consistently enough to switch. Suggestions welcome.

I found it so strange when i lived in America that a lot of households do not own a kettle unlike in the UK (or Europe) where every house has one.

I basically cut the sugar out of my diet. In the past week I've had maybe two servings of sugar. And I tell you what the tea that had the sugar and it was really good, I mean really good. I have enjoy a beverage with sugar that much in the longest time. And yes I do think sugar is addictive.

It is incredible the number of calories the average American gets from sugar. No wonder we are all so fat. Yes you can have a soda but no do not have more than one serving, don't even bother have 12 ounces, have 8, 8 ounces is a serving size.

I've never been in the habit of eating junk food and prepare all my own meals. Don't eat anything out of boxes. But the problem still remains that there are additives and toxins in almost all of our food products, much less processed food products (100 percent of which have messed up stuff in them).

I was at whole foods yesterday buying a bunch of meats and some rice so I can cook dinners the whole week, and because I hadn't slept in 36 hours and didn't feel like cooking I grabbed two slices of pizza from them at the hot bar. This brings me to the question that presumably the whole foods pizza ingredients are probably fairly well made(in theory) vs say something from pizzahut, Is this type of food considered junk food? And also if I was to buy decent quality ingredients separately and bake my own pizza, would that be junk food?

I'm a pretty big fan of whole foods pizza myself. The last time I checked it's good in terms of quality. As you know, Whole Foods doesn't fill their foods and items they sell with preservatives and chemicals. I think you're good man.

RE: The No Sugar & Junk Food Thread, For Those That Are Serious About Quitting
I need to get on this.

I barely ever drink alcohol (maybe a glass of wine or cider twice a month, at most), and never drink soft drinks, but definitely have a sweet tooth, and I'm vulnerable to doing stuff like getting a bag of chips or a candy bar from the vending machine at work (at one point, I was doing this every day.)

I'm slim and in good shape so there's never been any real sense of urgency, but if I could cut out the junk food, I'd probably have visible abs, clearer skin, and more energy.

For now, I will cut out everything except a maximum of two squares of dark chocolate once every few days. I already like snacking on nuts and usually do that once a day. Maybe I'll try substituting a mix of berries for sweets for my other meal.

I generally do intermittent fasting a few days a week (8PM-12PM) so my goal is to maintain that at least five days a week.

You can even heat up water in a microwave.

I need to commit to this myself. Since moving, I have found myself off my game when it comes to my diet, and it's led to gaining a few pounds around the midsection. I can likely go cold turkey on sweets/junk food, although my kryptonite is often the occasional late night meal if my gf and I are out on the town.
