Weight loss & food intolerances

I have lost 18lbs since the week before Christmas

I appear to have done this by completely eliminating milk/dairy from my diet (as advised by my consultant)

I had already given up milk/butter/cheese etc but over Christmas I actually looked at every label and gave up all the silly bits in biscuits/bread/soup etc

I eat the same amount I previously ate; possibly higher in calorie......but I'm losing weight

Can anyone explain this?

Have you inadvertantly gone low carb? I'm on a no milk diet due to bfing an allergic baby and have lost weight. Did you have weight to lose? 18 pounds in just over 2 months is actually an acceptable weight loss and nothing to worry about if you're not underweight

Oh I needed to lose it - I'm just surprised I have iyswim

I certainly eat no less

When I went low carb I ate tons and still lost weight. It's entirely possible that in cutting out all the stuff with milk in, you've also cut out the stuff that had a lot of sugar in it iyswim.

Possibly but I'm eating loads of Jam doughnuts & bacon sarnies & pate-on-toast so it's a great way to eat grin
