Honestly, I don't know enough yet about Carb Cycling, nor am I implementing the idea fully enough to know whether or not I have challenges, lol! I just want to make my presence known, and get to know all of you, as I find my way into this.
I joined the team from a more intuitive desire... I started my journey with the ideas in my head 'begin as you mean to continue' and 'don't do anything to lose weight that you wouldn't do to maintain it'. I realized early on that I would not be happy about tracking food forever, so once I had an adjusted idea of portions size and once I had a realistic idea about the caloric content of most of what I eat, I stopped tracking. I use the tracker when I feel I need to refine what I'm doing further.
Cycling carbs is part of my 'refining' process and I was pointed in this direction by 'Body for Life for Women'. I'm hoping to learn from those of you who are more experienced. What really resonated for me from the book is the idea of eating to suit your age and stage in life. One of the culprits in my weight gain, was not realizing how my metabolism was/would continue to change along with the hormonal changes I am going through.
Carbs now seem to be a problem for me, even though they have never been before (I turn 50 in a couple of weeks). I really appreciated the 'Carb Cycling: The Fat Loss Plateau Buster' article, JAZZID! You always have such great information and you are so generous in your sharing.
Planning helps with everything, I think, yet life isn't as structured as I'd like it to be. At this point I need idiot/life-proof menue/meal plans that I just follow without thinking... which leads me to my next 'thank you'... while I didn't qualify for the 'deal' (I'm Canadian) the suggestion was just what I needed to push me into getting a subscription to 'Clean Eating'.
So, in my long-winded way, I'm glad to have a place to come with my questions as I go along, and I'm a great cheerleader, LOL!
