I don't think you should have to give up anything. As long as you eat in moderation and use portions wisely, you can still enjoy things you like as long as you don't over do it. WW has been great for me understanding that. I actually feel like I am eating more than I was before WW. But it's better choices and things that will benefit my body. I think if you follow a more inclusive eating plan without depriving yourself or eating less, you'll be surprised at the outcome.
