    You definitely don't have to give up bread altogether. (And you really shouldn't, we need balance in our diets). Just cut down a bit and make sure they are healthy whole grains, as little processed as possible.

I hated water too. I found that if I had a Camelbak bottle or a glass with a straw in front of me at work, I can sip on it all day. Less effort than a glass by itself that I have to stop and lift (lazy, I know!) That got me started and it's been easy lately to get over 8 glasses a day. The summer weather will probably help too since you'll be thirstier from the heat.

Looking at your page though, I see you've gotten quite a ways already! Congrats! emoticon

    you need to drink more water, grains shouldn't be the issue, you could not be eating enough or you could just be on a plateau, stress is bad for weight loss too, just be patient and do the work, it will come

    You know, I was really surprised at how relatively easy it was to give up bread. Most of the flavor of foods that we eat with bread (sandwiches, pizza, etc) is in the protein and fat portion. I guarantee you'll lose a couple of pounds pretty quickly because the starch/sugar from the bread makes you retain water. It also shuts off the fat-burning furnace until those carbs are burnt up.

I know a bunch of strategies for increasing water intake. One easy one for water haters is to buy a box of 3 oz Dixie cups and set a goal for the day to finish x number of them. Anybody can down a 3 ouncer with no problem and over the day they really add up!

    small amounts of healthy fats may also be helpful. they make you feel full and absorb nutrients better

    Drink more water. Add lemon to give it a different taste. Fill up on fruits and veggies, but take it slow. Adding too many too fast will mess with your stomach. Make sure you're getting enough protein. Do you track your food? That helps you see what you need more or less of (protein, carbs, fat, calories).
