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
Welcome to the team. It sounds like you want a more liberal carb diet as opposed to real low carb. Something like South Beach. My best advice to you would be to eat carbs that chiefly come from low glycemic veggies. They are powerhouses of nutrition. The next group would be low glycemic fruits. Followed by beans and legumes. The final group is grains and I recommend that you be careful with them and eat the best least processed kinds like quinoa, barley, etc. Keep processed foods to a minimum and you will avoid the bad stuff - high fructose corn syrup, transfat, sugar, white flour.

Hello all I'm new here and I really want to learn all about low carb, smart carb living. I see a difference in how I feel when I eat too many white carbs and I don't want to feel that way again. I'm not someone who can go without carbs forever but I feel so different when I don't eat a big bowl of pasta and tomatoes for supper. So here I am, open to suggestions, ideas and anything that can help me. Very excited to be here. Robin
