I've found being without bread and pasta easier than being without cheese,
cream, steak, bacon, eggs - most of the good tasty stuff.

And the nice thing is that you don't feel hungry, which for most people

The way to do it is to try it for 2 weeks and see how you feel.

a *really* easy diet if you're eating in hotels & restaurants.
