I have questions....lots of them!
I have been eating low carb for about 5 weeks, and I am getting alot of mixed reviews and critisms. My plan is to eat 20 grams of carbs a day, or less. I didn't go with any other "named plan" because I didn't know which one to choose, and I didn't like the restrictions on most of them.
Is my plan effective?? Does my body know what I am eating?
For example- most days my carbs come from veggies. BUT, if I have an extremely low carb day, is it ok to use my 20 carbs on a piece of toast?? At Cracker Barrel, they have a meal that is eggs and breakfast meats and a piece of low carb whole wheat toast- 12 net carbs for the meal... Can I have that?? Or does my body recognize the bread- and mess up the whole day?? My question would also include popsicles (2 carbs), or FlatOuts (7 carbs).
Also, is it possible to be successful if I haven't chosen a specific plan, other than generic low carb? Is a 20 carb allowance reasonable and effective for weight loss?? If I continue to eat less than 20 grams of carbs a day (regardless of where the carbs came from) will I still continue to lose weight??
I have lost 19 pounds in 5 weeks, and honestly, I expected the weight loss to be faster. Sometimes I go 3-4 days without losing anything. I am wondering if the extras may be why.
I appreciate any feedback, advice, critisms, guidance, etc. THANKS!
