Low Carb?

Recommended Posts

I ate chicken every night last week and had yogurt and fruit in the mornings and lots of fruits and veggies all week...I lost just over a pound and didn't work out except for one day!

I liked lo carb because I LOVE sugar and doing this I couldn't have it, so it was a good restriction.

the only problem I have every time I do it, is that after about a week or I start to have trouble going to the bathroom. I think its because of the lack of fiber, does anyone have a solution for this?? (sorry if its TMI)

Other than that I like the lo carb diet because the pounds just melt away!
Lettuce---- lots of green veggies...

He's been doing this for about 8 years now and is in great shape. Because I live with him, I'm sort of forced to live a similar diet. I must say, after not eating pasta for two years, I can no longer eat it. It hurts my stomach really bad. It's just too much food.
does he eat sugar?

I usually do eat a lot of salads and veggies (especially broccolli and cauliflower), maybe I just have to limit my intake of cheese. I usually end up eating cheese in the mornings because I don't usally have time to make eggs, and theres not many other breakfast options.

He eats A LOT of sugar. I mean, A LOT. I swear the kid should be 300 pounds... but he's not, and I really think it's because he chooses to leave out the big carbs so that he can eat the rest.

Make sure you eat enough fiber. Have you tried Kashi bars? They are really good, 2 WW points (if you're doing that too) and should solve your problem. I learned the hard way. I ate 2/day for 3 days....

I've done the Suzanne Sommers diet for about 4-5 years and have really liked it. It eliminates the bad carbs (white flour, sugars) while being able to eat the good carbs (whole wheat, brown rice).

 

I am addicted to pasta, so could not think of giving up carbs all together.

 

It has been an easy one for me to stick to, plus I feel a lot healthier. My fiance is pre-diabetic, and so it works well for him also.

I am glad I am not the only one doing their own variation of this....

 

I hate breakfast food, so I usually just eat a string cheese or something. Ya, real healthy, right?

 

Today was day 2 and I did good! smile159.gif

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
