Low carb makes me tired, high carb makes me fat, high protein makes me spotty etc so I eat everything in moderation, keeping one eye on my kcal intake and the other on my workouts.

Since foods with crappy nutritional value are inherently not filling and not bulky enough, I avoid them and trade them in for a better option. (ie: morning cereals, never get the suggary ones, only the plain without added sweetener/sugar ones; as a side dish 2 cups of iceberg lettuce is more filling than a cup of chips)

Well I don't believe in "diet" I believe in life style change. So, unless you plan on staying on this diet I would say stay away. If you don't and you go back to your regular way of eating you end up getting those pounds back 2 times more than what you already had.

Carbs are our friends! They fuel our brain and are quick fuel for our muscles. Now, I totally think that refined sugar and flour should not be part of a healthy menu, but lots of fruit and whole grains are essential.

People get hung up on protein. I have been there and back. I am seeing much more definition by avoiding meat and cheese and sticking to plant-based proteins like beans, broccoli, and greens.

I personally haven't cut out carbs. I just follow through with aprox.50% of my calories going that way.. It just works for me..

Hi ladies. I was curious, have ya'll found that low carb (ie. 100-150 grams a day) and extra protein helps in losing the weight for us shorties/cuties? Seems like any little extra fat shows up fast on me.

Happy at home!
