Low Carb Eating

Hi everyone, I have found the secret - lower the carbs and don't be afraid of the fat. Eliminate the processed carbs and most of the whole grains. Eat protein and veggies, nuts, some fruit and juice whatever you want. Works for me and I feel great and have much more energy and brain power.
