I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing. Agatha Christie ----------------------- Kierae - happily maintaining since 1/2009
Sounds like you are enjoying benefits of eating Low Carbs.. I have been Low Carbing for over a year now and reaping the benefits daily. Since I am also a Diabetic, Low Carbing has helped me gain a tighter control over my blood sugars and Insulin usage. If your are asking for ideas or recipes, you can find them here on the Team as well as the Spark/recipes. All you need to do is ask or search. You know " Seek and you will find."
Good Luck on your journey. Michele

Welcome to the team!! Smart Carbing gets easier the longer you do it if you stick with it long enough to make it a habit. You learn a lot of helpful tips from other successful smart carbers along the way. They help to tweak whatever plan you choose to make it something you can live with - a way of life.

Low carb is a whole new way of eating, but I feel so much better when I eat this way, too! There are several low carb teams and all have something to offer. I also belong to the Living Low Carb (Atkins and other plans). That is also a very active team with lots of people who have been eating this way for many years. Between the teams, there is always some helpful information, someone to answer questions, and great recipe ideas!
I'm new to clean living and smarter carbs. One month in and I'm feeling fab, but I still have a lot to learn. I'm so glad this group exists. I am looking forward to reading about your experiences and your tips and advice. Especially your success stories which are so inspiring. My own progress has thus far been great. I feel good, look much better than I have in years and I have much more energy. Long gone is the bloated, tired, grumpiness of the past.
I'm not sticking strictly to a specific diet, but I have read South Beach, Carol Vorderman Detox, Primal Blueprint, and Atkins and am trying to take the best from all of them. I've not had white bread, rice or any processed food in a month and while I thought it was going to kill me, I'm discovering I don't really need them after all. I just hope I can keep it up.
