Hi, I am new to this team and looking forward to getting to know everyone. I have been improving my carb consumption, but still have a lot to learn.

Hope everyone is having a great week!

Try harder--in everything that you do!

If the mind mends, the body will follow.

Gluten free is working for me!

There are a lot of good carbs - especially the low glycemic veggies and fruits. Beans, seeds, ,nuts and dairy.

Good luck to you as you begin you low carb journey. Gary Taubes really does make you start to question conventional thinking. As a diabetic, I learned really quickly that carbs were not my friend! emoticon

I'm new to this group, and just wanted to say hi!

I have believed for over a year now that sugar and refined carbs are not healthy, but until reading "Good Calories, Bad Calories" by Gary Taubes, I wasn't 100% convinced of how bad they were for my health. I thought they just caused my cravings and some minor aches and pains. After reading that book I will never look at a baked good, candy or anything else made from those things the same.

I read the book over my holiday vacatoin last week, and finished up before New Years. I normally am not one for resolutions, or waiting until Monday to start a diet. However, I did start my "Smart Carbing" yesterday and intend to make this a lifelong committment. I will abstain from sugar in all it's forms, refined carbs (specifically all flours, white rice, processed starchy vegetables) from now on. I do plan on the occasional indulgence (holidays only). Cravings are usually a problem for me, especially sweets. In the hopes of ridding myself of the intense cravings faster, I will be eating no carbs for the next 2 weeks. After that I will slowly add in whole vegetables a little at a time. Then some low sugar fruits (berries). And lastly some starchy, whole vegetables (potatoes, squashes). I want to monitor how I feel with each addition to see if any of the ill effects of the years of carb abuse come back. I've been living a high sugar, high carb diet for more than 30 years, so I know it may take a while for my body to become normal.

My goals are really just becoming the healthiest me I can be. That includes losing the excess weight. I have about 30 lbs to lose. I want to get control of my iron defiency anemia and depression.

I look forward to getting to know you all!
