Friday: yesterday and today, I was good, good, good! And today, I lost a pound. This evening, I notice I am retaining water. I wonder what tale tomorrow's scale will tell.... well, I only count it on Mondays....
Saturday: happy happy joy joy! I lost a surprise pound! I have a problem though:
I am stunned. Every time I go looking for a recipe here, or read someone's blog, it seems that EVERYbody seems to think that eating low-carb means eating low-fat. I eat LOW CARB, HIGH FAT! Why does everyone on this site seem afraid of FAT? Even the low-carbers?!? I've had my bloodwork done repeatedly, and the longer I stay on the low-carb diet, the better my numbers become. AND I've reached goal weight eating this way, quite happily and tastily. Note to others: Yes, I re-gained the weight because I went *off* the diet for emotional reasons.... but I'm back, doing the same thing, because IT WORKS!
Yes, I realize that eating low-carb does not exclude eating low-fat -- which pretty much leaves protein exclusively... but so many recipes call for low-fat products which inevitably are higher carb, and so-called "low-carb" recipes contain more than my entire day's carbs, that I can hardly think that we have anywhere near the same idea of what low-carb means! I've read 15 low-carb books, and endless low-carb nutritional sites; I think I have a CLUE about how to low carb!
I don't want to mess anybody up -- what works for them WORKS for them; but how do I give advice, make recommendations, or even not waste my own time, when it seems like we are 'speaking different languages"? A few folks have indicated interest in some recipes I've referred to, but I am becoming embarrassed to post them, since they are high fat. Where do I fit in?
