    Missed the cut-off date for the competition but I'm with you all in spirit.

    Doing a 'Dry January" so figured may as well try a low-carb diet and attempt to lose some weight in the process.

    Beginning weight: 76.7kg - Jan 12th

    Food is low carbs. Mostly salad for lunch. Dinners are meat + veg. Alcohol: 0 :moon:

    A 'thins' sandwich. Still pretty carby but a hell of a reduction compared to the 4x slices of white bread I used to have everyday.

    Plans for low carb were almost sabotaged by a decision to have a meal out at Pizza Express. Opted to go for their healthier pizza which had a relativly low carb count (theres a hole in it under that salad):

    Dinner was chicken + cheese, chilli fried mushrooms with spring onions and broccoli. I've also replaced the lunchtime sandwich with a 2nd apple to further lower carbs. Suspect that alot of the weight loss at this stage is still water loss so trying to drink more water as well.
