LIVINMYDREAMS is right -- you have to take this on as a lifestyle, something you're going to do forever. If you approach it as a temporary solution which you can abandon at your goal point, you're likely to end up right back where you started - or worse!
As an overly simplistic example: if you change the oil in your car but then go back to running it hot or not doing maintenance on it thereafter, you haven't accomplished much.
Low and restricted carb is a whole way of living. If you can find your compatible zone in there, it will work for you, both for weight loss and improved health!
Best to you in your endeavors!
...the problem with people these days is
they've forgotten we're really just animals ...
We did not create the web of life; we are but a strand in it.
We don't have souls. We ARE souls. We have bodies.
