I don't usually believe in fad diets. They only serve as a short term solution. But, as some of you know, I have been struggling to get rid of my "mom apron" or "donut belly" since I had my son 3 years ago. Everything I am researching online suggests lots of cardio and a low carb/low sugar diet to help with this issue.
If you know me, you know I am a carb-a-holic. We eat pasta 2-3 times a week, i love mashed potatoes (and potatoes in general), and bread....oh bread. I can forsee this being a problem lol.
So, for those of you who have adopted this low carb lifestyle, how have you made it work? Any tips/suggestions to make this a little easier?
Edit: I want to throw in that I have no intention of cutting them out all together. Also, I love fruits and veggies, so even though most of those contain carbs, I won't cut them out either. I guess I am just looking at a serious reduction in consumption. My body doesn't really like sugar anymore. I can no longer drink sweet tea because it makes me sick to my stomach (I lived on it for 20+ years). I also can't eat a lot of sweets/candy/etc. for the same reason. This has just started within the last year...
