lol same here, I tried that south beach diet OMG sure it let me loose weight but that phase 1 made me so sick I was like A DOCTOR PRESCRIBES THIS????????

People really need to look at these low carb dieting plus after a while of cal counting you really don't want so many damn carbs. You want more protein and veggies.

Our bodies aren't stupid.

SP gave me 1200 to 1500 but I found even 1500 was to low. Seems between 1700-1800 was my magic range..I'm counting points right now (weigh watchers) it's easier because I have all tools and don't have to jump online to look everything up. Even with them it was to low when I went to the meetings.. I'm eating 13 more points then I was told to.. Everyones body is different you have to find what works for you. I guess all that yo yo dieting I've done over the years did do some good after all lol

Same for me .. Id lose for a while on low carb then the scale would stop moving. With calories counting you can eat what you want...as long as it's in calorie range of course. Just be careful and don't go to low on your calorie range because you'll also stop losing. Try to always stay on the high in of your calorie range to keep your body happy. I made the mistake way to many times of getting to low then giving up because I couldn't get the scale to move again. You'll lose fast but then it stops... Also keep track of the amount of calories you ate that day/ week then when you weight loss slows or stops you can go back and see what the calorie range your body likes.

Anywhere from 1,200 to 1,550 just like sp says and I don't watch my carbs. I am seriously starting to think that that damn nutritionist that I saw saying oh you have to watch your carbs is BS.

I am eating WHITE BREAD!!! I am eating refined carbs and still loosing weight of course I like the other ones too :) but when your in our situation you have to go with what's cheap period!!

How many calories are you considering low cal? I too need a certain amount of carbs, but I have found that choosing smart carbs is the important part, and as long as I always pair them with a protein, they don't seem to hurt me.

But if I eat too low of calories I get tired, headachey, crabby, and my blood sugar drops too low. (Of course right now I need to eat a certain amount anyway because of breastfeeding)

Well I found my answer,

I weighed today 149 POUNDS!!! I lost another pound yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyyy

All from low calorie, I didn't get anywhere with low carb. Infact I honestly hated low carb because it's was all about the wheat.

I felt like crap on low carb and I'm glad I learned my lesson, when you feel like crap your body is trying to tell you something. So that would make 31 lbs I have lost :)
