Trying a Healthy LifeStyle

I live in a very rural area and the closest (real) gym is 1 1/2 hrs away, and getting fresh produce is a real problem. I hope to overcome these problems and lose the weight I gained after losing my job last year.

Hey there, Patty!

Thanks for the emoticon on my blog! I feel absolutely wonderful today because of my losses.

Just want to point out one thing, though - I purposely wrote "slow-carb" and not "low-carb" because there is a slight difference to the two. Low-carb diets tend to cause people to fixate on eating as few carbohydrates as possible, which actually isn't healthy at all - we need carbs for energy! The slow-carb diet, though, wants you to eat as many natural forms of carbohydrates as possible: protein (meat & seafood); legumes (lentils, kidney beans, etc.); vegetables (excluding potatoes). The strictness associated with this diet is that you're supposed to avoid dairy, fruits, and grain-products, though you can make exceptions for small amounts of whole grain breads and brown rice if you really have a craving. Tim Ferriss's version of the slow-carb diet allows for a "cheat day" during the week (I chose Saturdays) to help spike caloric intake which is actually necessary for healthful weight loss.

Ahem!

Welcome to SparkPeople, by the way - I see that you're new to the website. Enjoy the benefits of a fantastic community!
