Well, this minimizing carbs thing really works! I can feel a difference, albeit slight, in the way my clothes fit, and my energy is way up there! The diet requires you stay off the scale for 8 weeks because of the fluctuations (they don't want you to get depressed or over-excited), but you can use the tape measure once a week to see how you are progressing. I haven't measured yet, but I think I may have lost some inch(es)!
Last night for supper, I had a hamburger with lettuce, tomato and a slice of cheese. Instead of putting it in a bun, I wrapped it in lettuce -- superb! Basically, I have given up bread, pasta, rice and potatoes for the next 8 weeks (less now, around 6.5). Feel great!
