Hi, Fiber, and welcome!
I had a problem with starchy carbs and for years I said I couldn't overcome it. This time I did. It is hard but you have to limit yourself - no excuses, no if's, and's, or but's. After a month of limiting my bread, rice, potatoes, etc. I found I no longer craved large amounts of starchy carbs. I'm now satisfied with 1 medium potato and 1/2 cup of brown rice. You just have to hold fast and give your body the time to adjust to this new and healthier way of eating. My best advice is 1) use your nutrition tracker faithfully, every single day, because it will keep you honest and accountable for your choices; 2) find a few exercises/activities you actually LIKE doing and then do them 3-4X a week - if you like doing them, you have a better chance of sticking with them; 3) stay active with your teams because they will keep you motivated and give you support and encouragement, and; 4) try to have fun with this because if you enjoy the journey you will reach your destination! So,
I also recommend you run your daily report (on the tracker page) so you can check your percentages of carbs, proteins, and fats and compare them to the recommended values on that report. Keeping a check on those really worked for me. Good luck and don't ever say "I can't" because
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He wlll make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:5-6
