Good Morning All,
Finally the scale moved to 219lbs Yeah!! (that's 2lbs lower). I lowered my carbs to 20-25 grams a day, seems I am very carb sensitive. I have been reading a book called "Why We Get FAT" by Gary Taubes a very interesting read, my daughter shared it with me. He is basicly stating that: "Carbohydrates make us fat and
they do so independently of the first law of thermodynamics. Forget
about calories, you can eat as many or as few of those as you'd like,
ultimately weight is purely about carbohydrates."
We will see :-) if my numbers now consistently go down or not, with my reduce carb intake. I am sticking to the idea once I achieve my goal weight, and I will! I will then have to test which carbs work well with me, introducing them slowly and seeing how the effect my weight. Which is basically what we are all doing by fine tuning are diets to how our bodies react to certain foods.
Hugs to all...I know allot of us are having major stressful times in our lives at the moment and the strength you are all showing is amazing. Sending good thoughts and love to you all.
