Hi and welcome!

Sounds like you're doing things right. If you're comfortable at the carb level you're at, then stay there. If you want to add a few carbs per week that's fine too. Each of us is so different that we all have to do a lot of experimenting to find the "sweet spot".

Labour is prior to, and independent of capital. Capital is only the fruit of labour, and could never have existed if labour had not first existed. Labour is the superior of capital, and deserves much the higher consideration.

VAMPTRIANA4EVER,
Welcome.

I've kept my blood sugar under control with no medication for over a year now by eating low carb. That was after 10 years of it just barely under control with medication. I've also lost about 30 pounds.

The key thing I've learned to count is carbs. If you keep your carbs low, say 20 to 40 grams a day, you will loose body fat.

I used to avoid calories too, to not much help. But fat you eat doesn't have the insulin response that carbs have, and that is the key.

I joined the team a few days ago and I have been on Atkins for the last 6 weeks or so. I too have tried all the low fat diets and shakes and pills and who knows what else in my efforts to lose weight. I would always lose a few pounds but it would never take long for it to stop and to gain it all back plus more. So finally after all this time I started listening to all the people who have recommended low carb diets. It really is like a miracle pill.... In the 6 weeks since I have been following Atkins I have lost 25lbs already. I have never lost weight like this before! I am so glad that I finally decided to give this a try. It really is true. I never feel as hungry as I did on all those low fat diets. I have quite a lot of weight to lose so I have stayed at induction level for an extended period until I get closer to my goal. I think I am almost ready to move on to OWL now though. I would like to get under 200 first though. 10 more pounds to go!
