low carb is sooo hard!!!!!!!

Sunday, March 24, 2013

Hi my name is Jen and I am a carb addict! emoticon OMG I never realized how many things that I eat (and like) that have carbs!Trying to cut back on them because I know I could never do the Atkins thing, it makes me sick just thinking about it emoticon So I have decided to just cut out the "white" stuff, going to add as much multi-grain and fiber as possible! For supper I have decided to make meatloaf and salad the hubby will probably want potatoes but I ain't going to make them poor him, he needs to lose a few pounds himself.
I have been looking for some low carb recipes UGH!!!!! I have found a few but they are way fattening so I would need to revamp some of the ingredients. It seems to be too much to ask for me to find a simple low calorie low carb meal. I can get pieces which some of the recipes are things I have come up with on my own already which in a way I'm like cool I am thinking on the right track but at the same time I feel stupid for even looking if everything I find is right in front of me already!
If I don't find something that sparks my interest soon then I think I will have to go a different route!

    Have you tried the South Beach Diet? That is also a low carb but has low calorie options. You also don't give up everything. I have a friend who did it and still follows it but also enjoy going out to eat.

    I know Atkins has meals and such but I am not looking to buy things already made they usually have way to much salt in them. I went to the Atkins website but I needed to sign up and I don't need anymore emails I'm not going to read I have enough of them already emoticon I will check out the genaw Thanks!

    I have been low carbing since 2004, I dropped 100lbs and have kept it off.

Low carb has been the easiest thing I have ever done to drop my weight.

I did so many diets, all failed until I watched a co-worker drop 50lbs like nothing and i tried it myself.

There is a website she has tons of very good recipes and pics to go with.
Atkins also have some very good products on the market right now.
