I rarely buy processed food where most of the carbs come from.........if I get fast food when I have a coupon, buy l and get l free. I take off the bun and only eat the veggies and meat. That saves a lot of calories and carbs. If you can't give up the whole bun, then only have half of it. I need to be more conscious of my portion control even if I am eating low carb, a calorie, is a calorie and that is what we have to keep in mind, at least I do. I only have 54 days until I leave for a cruise by myself and want to lose enough to feel confident in whatever I wear. So I have to be serious about watching and controlling what I eat.

My favorite: "You either have a Big GOD and a small problem or you have a small God and a Big PROBLEM!"
The name says it all: LIVING Low Carb. This really isn't a diet team, it's a life-change team. Most of us particularly avoid carbs from grain, since they (and wheat especially) seem to come with additional problems of their own!
So, Hi! And Welcome to the team!
The great enemy of truth is very often not the lie--deliberate, contrived and dishonest--but the myth--persistent, persuasive and unrealistic. Too often we hold fast to the cliches of our forebears. We subject all facts to a prefabricated set of interpretations. We enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought.
This is a really helpful, active, knowledgeable group!

Looking for a new group to join that is more in line with my challenges. I had great success with the 17 Day Diet, and came to find out that it works! Lost 25 lbs initially, unfortunately gained some weight back when I began eating bad carbs again. Need to get back on track. Low carb living helped my health out tremendously; dropped weight, eliminated high blood pressure and glucose intolerance. Now I am being told that carbs may be what is causing all my remaining health issues. Who knew! Looking forward to this new group.
