There are ways to make low carb bread and faux-tatoes in Dana Carpender's cookbooks. There's also a lot of good recipes in general.

You will love this team - lots of support and knowledge.

There is no going back to high carb eating for most of us. We understand it has to be a lifestyle or we will go directly back to where we do not want to be.

Having some lowcarb cookbooks can really be motivating, and it lets you know that it's not a boring all meat and veggies diet.

SANDYHEARTSFALL,
I've got a few tips:

1) count your carbs by looking up nutritional information, having a good electronic scale and keep your carbs below about 50 grams a day

2) keep a journal of what you eat, both to keep yourself honest and to build a repertoire of what you like that is low carb

3) it takes some time to switch from using carbs to using protein and fat, either fat you eat or your own, expect that to fully take a few weeks, with the toughest being the first 3 or 4 days when you can feel weak, dizzy, or just plain unwell as your body chemistry just isn't up to the task yet.

Hi and welcome!

It's great that you love veggies! It's a misconception that low carb is all bacon, all the time.

Most folks here are doing low carb as a permanent lifestyle. There's a pretty wide range of plans and freestyle represented, and tons of knowledge.

Equal rights for others does not mean less rights for you. It's not pie.

emoticon I joined in May. I was doing LC until I ordered some fresh peaches from GA, and then the kids and I pigged out on them for a little over a week! But this is a lifetime commitment so a week off is no big deal. Peaches are now consumed- I'm back to LC. I've lost 19 pounds since May, and did not gain this week. :o)

Hi everyone, I started SP yesterday and after doing tons of research, I am going to follow a low carb plan to lose weight and maintain the weight. I'm not super fond of the taste of meats, but I'm sure sticking to a low carb diet will be best for me as I love cheese, vegetables and nuts. I have gained so much weight and my health is really suffering, so from everything I read, low carb would be perfect for me. I was eating a ton of carbs and that is about all I want, so time to turn that around once and for all.

I look forward to getting to know all of you and hear your stories, tips, etc.
