    Starting June 1 I tried to cut all added sugars from my diet. I've been pretty consistent on it and I've dropped 16 pounds -- 214 to 198. I tried to add in going to the gym a little bit too and that helps. I am hoping to get back to the 185 range but I already feel a lot better.

    Update: About a week after this, my doc told me that my triglycerides were high -- not like scary high, but definitely higher than they should be -- and recommended a dietary overhaul, which included ... eliminating added sugar.

    So: Since June 20, I've severely limited added sugar and have all but eliminated dairy, pork, white rice and white bread from my daily intake. Without significantly increasing my exercise, I lost 18 pounds in two months. Now that I'm back to what I think I should weigh (I'm 49, 5-7 and in the high 140s), I've started bumping the exercise back up to where I was a few years ago. Have never felt better.

    Eliminating unnecessary sugar is probably the biggest reason why I lost weight and the biggest factor to putting it back on. I'm down 12 pounds in the past 3 weeks, largely from recommitting to my sugar cut down and eliminating alcohol.
