Christina - I'm fairly new to this team and learning about eliminating carbs from my diet. I'm also reading Why We Get Fat by Gary Taubes and finding it extremely interesting! I've pretty much cut SUGAR out of my life for awhile, although there are lots of hidden sugars that probably still get in, and I've known for a long time that if I cut out bread, pasta, potatoes, corn, fruit juices and so forth, I do much better....not only at losing weight but overall. Not sure why these items creep back into my meals and snacks but I believe it's a process and we can't make 'big changes' in one step so it's better to just take baby steps, which is what I'm doing.
Good luck on your journey!
