Deb,
I'm the kind of nut, who when I'm in serious weight loss mode, counts everything that I eat. Calories, grams of carbs, fat, and protein. It helps me stay on track and not just think that I've made a change.

If you're going to count anything, count grams of carbs, probably a maximum of 40 grams per day. If you do that the rest follows. I'm also a whey protein powder guy. I don't want to loose muscle mass while loosing body fat, so I try to have about 60 grams of protein in a day.

Hi and welcome! This team is awesome - very knowledgeable and friendly!

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.

You will find the support you need here - we all have different health and weight issues. I am the world's slowest loser for sure. A couple of us on this team like to say, "Getting older is not for sissies." I never had a problem until I hit fifty. It's like 'what happened'!!!

DSILVIANO1957,
Get on the low carb bandwagon.

I started low carb a year ago. I lost a bunch of weight, and it kept my type 2 diabetes under control without medication, after 10 years of meds. After I lost the weight I stuck to low carb eating as a lifestyle. I keep searching out new low carb things to increase my repertoire.

Pancakes made with whey protein powder, for example, are one thing now on my breakfast list.

Best wishes on your journey,
- James

Hi everyone....I am a soon to be 56 year old mom of 2 little girls (5 and 8) who we adopted. I did Atkins several years ago and lost 50 pounds....but then life got in the way with my hubby's cancer (in remission thank you Lord!) and moving and adopting, etc., etc., and so now I find myself needing to get back on the bandwagon and lose 60+ pounds. I pretty much know what to do and how to do it, but just wanted to read some good supportive posts and help anyone else along as I can. Ya'll be good to yourself!!
