    This is me riding my bike through the carb minefield... backwards. emoticon

    Simply put it's alternating high and low carb days. In later versions, the author, Chris Powell (of Biggest Loser fame, I think) suggested other patterns - I'm doing 2 or 3 low carb days then a high carb day. His book spends a lot of time on his exercise plan (I couldn't see the graphics on my Kindle so who knows... something about 9's - 9 minutes?) plus the "science", on portion control (his plan is basically low cal - around 1200-1500) I'm finding it a bit easier to follow by throwing those "high" carb days into the mix.

    Bottom line - no magic pill - whatever works. I just like to mix things up once in a while to keep my attention.

    TREKPURRSON is praising God for our miraculous Sunday rescue ( by boat and army giant vehicle) from the flood, and our house and BFF's were SPARED, cars DRY! Helping others less fortunate! Praying for Louisiana! Thanks for checking on me, Janet! It has been WILD! emoticon

    How you going with the carbs? I try to get them through green vegetables, and keep my fruit to two servings of low GI fruit a day. Berries, apples, pears, kiwi, citrus. Still try to get in ten freggies though. Smoothes are my savior here, I get three freggies first thing.

    Thank you so much for visiting my blog. The book was introduced to me on my other favorite website - for caregivers but I find it fits exactly with our efforts on SP.

    Your granddaughter looks gorgeous, as you do, too!

    Have a great week!

    I'm sometimes finding myself nodding over it, and sometimes talking back to it (SPARKCOACH)... depends on the day. But seriously, you and I, m'dear, are smart women, applying those smarts to LIFE now. We can do this, and not going to let "arguing" with advice that doesn't fit one of us on a specific day get in the way of doing what works to balance those lives, and take care of ourselves, body, mind and spirit!

    Oh, but it gives a ton of Spark Points to go through the exercise. If that kind of thing trips your trigger (not really for me, but for a while I'll take 'em for my efforts). emoticon Especially since right now I'm not tracking food for points, and often just let the Spark activity tracker be "it" for my fitness points.
