DUMPING DAIRY: Are you really unwilling to at least try it?

I had an interesting “posting” duel with someone on Facebook recently.  It is not the first time I have run into this issue.  It started with the suggestion of dropping dairy from the diet.  There are quite a few of us out there who have stalled, dropped the dairy, and started losing again.  It was not an easy thing to do at all but the results were worth it.

Here is sort of how it went --

Problem:  (violins in the background)  I am stuck.  I am stalled.  I cannot lose.  Nothing works.  Waaaa.

Suggested solution: Try dropping dairy.

Problem:  I love dairy.  That cannot be it.  I have already given up too much.

Suggested solution:  Just try it as an experiment and find substitutes.  See if the weight starts dropping again.

Problem:  Well, that is easy for young people, but I am over 50 with way too much weight to lose. Time is running out.

Suggested solution:  I also am well over 50 and had almost 100 pounds to lose.  This really did work for me when I stalled out, but YMMV (Your Mileage May Vary)

Problem:  I do not like experimenting with my food like that. 

Suggested solution:  Look at the word “experiment” as just a temporary thing as opposed to the word “failure” which can derail us.  Try to have faith to persevere.

Problem:  I am an atheist and I do not have faith.  I also have no friends or family.

Suggested solution:  ….. speechless …..

You won.

I will always wonder why people ask questions but refuse to hear the answers.

And of course, I also wonder about all the other issues this poor person is dealing with.
