One thing I've noticed

Since starting my journey and keeping a food diary, I've been drinking a lot less milk. Seeing that 1 cup of 1% milk is 100 calories, a normal day for the old me would often be 6 to 8 cups. I'd have 2 cups at a time in a large cup. I'd have a large cup every morning for breakfast, another for lunch, some after work, one for dinner and more after dinner. I would easily go through a gallon of milk in a couple of days without trying too hard.

Growing up I always drank a lot of milk and that continued into adulthood. I've known for a long time that milk isn't a necessity and I can get calcium from a variety of foods.

So drinking less milk has made a big difference in consuming fewer calories on a daily basis.
