    i have lost 10kg in weight, in 4 weeks, stopped eating bread and rice that is only change. Haven't lost size.
    Yesterday I ate some bread and had to go to bed as it seemed to drain energy.

    Drained of energy was how I used to feel after my "healthy wholegrain" oats breakfast - I would quite frequently go back to bed :blackeye:

    I think giving up grains is one of the best things I've ever done for my health.

    I didn't even look at it that way, I suffer from water retention and I'm putting some off the loss due to not retaining water so much.

    Starches grains and carbs always make me sleepy and gain weight. Not just a bs issue. Glad you're dropping weight. Inflammation is never good. You're on the right road ...good for you. I bet if you continue to cut your carbs you'll keep losing! And the added bonus of energy!!
