I feel that my biggest issues came from being such a heavy drinker. I noticed a lot of weight coming onto my abs as i drank more and more. Now that i have quit drinking, it seems as though the pounds have hit me much harder. i have gained 20lbs in 3 months. i thought by not drinking it would halt the weight gain. Now what do i do to counter all of the doubts that I am having about my choices? Does anyone have any ideas on meal planning that is healthier and easier to do than just following a menu? I find it very hard to stick to a menu plan. I would like to create one with healthy ingredients of my own choosing.
