Thalia, to the CD and GF team! OMG, you had a heart attack? How scary. I'm glad you're HERE! This site has grown A LOT since I joined; there's a wide SP world here, so take your time learning the site. I'm lower-carb and I saw you're interested in that. Consider learning about www.paleodiet.com. I gained 22 lbs starting w/gf diet because I didn't know about insulin resistance :P. What Barb said in the Intro thread might also be helpful - So. Beach. What works for me: lotsa veggies and fruits, more nuts/seeds. Protein. I'm not a traditional cook and my DH lives outta state so I'm cookin' for one though. I'm verry casual about my dining. Anyway, another inspiration for me is Diana Schwarzbein. Everything's on my page (and I mean EVERYTHING - LOL!)
I'd love to learn more about your experience with your heart attack if you're open to sharing.
