Losing weight on the way to optimal health is a life long journey. I think there is always things to be learned.. it is just the way it is.. Some things that I have learned recently is: Agave is not good for you. It's not even a decent choice. It's highly refined which is bad.. toss it. Raw honey is the beneficial honey.. I still have organic honey.. switching to raw when I can get it. Grains are not good.. It's sad.. i think that I will continue to reduce grains in my diet but not completely. I have gone several months without a slice of bread and really, was fine with it. I will have occasional brown rice and frequently oatmeal. See this blog for the details on what grains in your diet do to your body. Read, learn and then decide to do something about it..
