Thank goodness for a board that is specific to my diet. I have lost 50+ pounds over 2 years, and I am trying to lose the last 10! This way of eating is the only plan that has helped me control my binge eating, as well as making me feel so much better! I hope others join! Low carb has had such a bad rap, when really, it is a fantastic way of life! (BTW, I still eat french fries, and sweet rolls on occassion) :)

Well... I have finally decided to take the doctors advice. I tried Roni's way for a while, with not much luck... so I am looking for some support. What a better place to do it...

Has your doctor been advising you to do low carb? Most doctors scoff at it, but my BF's seemed very pleased he was reducing his carb intake to combat diabetes (huge family history of it). Weight Watchers works for many (my sisters included), but this is the only way of eating that has controlled my food obsession! What plan are you doing? (Mine is a slightly modified Atkins)

Low carbers, where are you?

I have PCOS and insulin resistance. It affects my fertility. Currently I am taking metformin to help my insulin work correctly. I (try to) eat a system in which carbs (15 grams) are linked with protein (7 grams). This last week I was out of town teaching and did a TERRIBLE job eating. I got sick of salads and didn't know menu options for our ordered lunch to make changes. But, now I am back and ready to eat right.

I have read that reducing carbs is great for correcting PCOS. I am struggling right now with recovering from splurges. Every weekend there seems to be some "reason" to go off plan. What gives? I need to focus really hard on that.

I understand the off plan thing. In the afternoon I feel like eating sugary/salty foods. I try to get flavored nuts for that... but that uses lots of points, so I plan for it. I am doing much better on my carb/fat/protien ratio and have stayed within points the last few days. I just feel like I could easily be out of control. I am trying to figure out fun ways to work out while not feeling stuck up or suffering heat exhaustion.

Hi! I'm here to meet more LC friends!!! I've been on plan since 04.06.08, I've lost about 30 lbs. It's been slow weight loss the last few weeks (about 1 lb per week) so I started eating to my BMR (today is day 3) and so far it's given me a nice whoosh! We'll see if it sticks, last time I had a whoosh I gained it all back the following week even though I ate clean. :) Ahh well, it is an exciting adventure!!!

Hi Jenn!! I am so glad you are here! I have been doing low carb since 01/06, and have lost 50 pounds, and really been able to control my eating habits. What do you mean by eating to your BMR? 1 pound a week is great loss, especially after losing 30 pounds in 3 months. Congrats!

Hi Jenn, sounds like you have much success. I have only been trying lc for a couple weeks. I don't do well at it. I mainly focus on linking carbs with proteins. Congrats on the 30lbs.
