For me it was carbs, not calories
Tuesday, February 26, 2013
I spent a lot of time last time I went through this reducing calories. And it was tough. Smaller and smaller portions, and I was hungry all the time.
Some folks at work went on the no-carb program (through a physician, I guess) and started losing ridiculously fast. I knew I couldn't go completely carb-free, but I knew I could make an effort in that direction.
So I ruled out most bread, potatoes, rice and pasta. Back in early January. And I'm down 17 pounds so far. It's funny, when you're not doing the carbs, the calories fall into place easily without having to worry much about portion control. Burgers without buns, skip the fries, no sandwiches... it just works.
