    My goal is to totally eliminate wheat. That's right, wheat. Did you know that two slices of whole grain bread causes a higher spike in blood sugar than a Snikers bar? Nearly twice as much!

    I actually just started a few days ago already.

    Goal? 3 pounds first week. Bonus points for 5 pounds!
    Update time! My last weight shows i've lost 7 pounds! I know what you're thinking: "how much are you exercising?" Zero, nada.

    Seriously, most people think exercise is so important, then continue loading up on carbs/gluten. Drop the wheat, drop the weight. It's been hard avoiding wheat based products all week, but I'm feeling great so far. Started at 212, down to down to 205.

    Side effect of dropping wheat? I don't get hungry every few hours like I used to. I simply eat 3 meals a day, with a few fatty nuts and cheese if I need a snack.

    Recommended book (my inspiration): Wheat Belly

    edit: yes, I know exercise is important, I'm just very busy with two kids and haven't found the time yet. I'm sure this quick weight drop will slow down and I'll need to start exercising more to continue the loss.

    I just started hopping on my mountain bike again and use the app sports tracker to track my stats now. I've given up my sugars and am following this guide. Great promotion, guys.
