Moderate low carb is working great!
Labels are a pain. I'm pretty much not eating bread, so I get the "are you doing a no carb diet? I'm not really. Some days I'm around 100 carbs, some days 150. I am purposely staying under 150, but I'm finding I stay around 100 on a normal weekd... Read more
Carbs are my Kryptonite
After trying pretty much every diet EVER, I have finally found something that actually works for me without making me feel like crap, without starving or buying all kinds of weird stuff, or not being able to eat out ever again.
It seems tha... Read more

An avocado smoothie that tastes good
I have been eating a kale smoothie for breakfast for about four years now. I went through a lot of different ingredients: protein powders, spirulina, cacao, flax, all kinds of extras. I've tried a lot of different recipes, but they seemed to hav... Read more
Feet are feeling sweet!
First time in a long time that I have no foot pain after a walk. I did 2.42 miles. These are some seriously contained shoes. I wear flip flops pretty much 24/7 and these sneakers have an actual arch and everything lol. My Sauconys do not have an... Read more
I forgot the foot pain from longer distance walks. Last time when I was exercising regularly I had gotten up to a decent pace, more slow jogging than walking. But then I stopped.
I started just doing a mile and a half. Then I figured to ... Read more
Why can't I keep a promise to myself?
Why do I keep doing this over and over again? Seriously I have been dieting since I was 13, so that's like 36 years. Really? It has recently occurred to me that I must not think I'm that important if I can't do this for myself. I would not tell ... Read more
Eating out is bad, mmkay?
Went for lunch with my mom and daughter today. We had made plans, so I only ate a Fage greek yogurt for breakfast. My mom loves Chili's so we went there. My mom can be um, quite "difficult" when eating out. I swear the woman has no filter on her... Read more
You never a fail if you keep trying!

Day 8, Phase 1 Fast Metabolism
OK I skipped posting a few days due to no time. I loved phase 3. It was a great mixture of all of the phases.
This is a pretty confusing way to eat, all around. I have to constantly check my app for what I'm supposed to be eating. I was ... Read more
