I couldn't give up my sandwiches. emoticon

I usually shop at Sprouts and spend 20 minutes reading the labels of their whole grain breads looking for lower carbs, higher fiber and omegas from flax seads. Lately I have been buying the Multi-Grain with Omega 3 from Alpine Valley and it is actually really good plus only 12 carbs.

There are some really good low carb breads that have flax and other healthy seeds that help burn fats. Dave's Killer Bread - Good Seed is delicious.

When I went Paleo I had success with my weight loss but I have also had success by lowering mostly my sugar intake and processed food intake. I do eat whole grain bread and it hasn't hurt my weight loss at all. But I would say for me overall low carb/low sugar/low processed junk has been the best way for me to go!

Low carb is really the only way I can eat and keep my symptoms at bay. I've switched more to a Primal diet. Fewer processed foods, although I do have diet soda at times.

The only way I have been able to lose any weight is by eating low carb and of course exercise, lol.

When I low or no carb, I can lose weight. It's the only way for me and I feel so much better when I stay on ths track.

If you focus on results, you will never change. If you focus on change, you will get results.

I will. right now I'm experimenting with steamed jicama instead of potatoes. I like it, but I'm having a slight allergic reaction to it.

next - I might try some steamed turnips or ruttabegas

I run at the very low end of the carb allowance, but I have gone virtually Paleo. It has really helped with mood swings and cramping is virtually gone...

Weight loss and regular periods. I have totally cut sugars, have one whole grain serving a day, and two servings of fruit (but no bananas or pineapple).
