started Low Carb based on Protien Power Plan
Cutting out all flours, starches, and sugars.

It is July 1 and I am not craving sugar anymore and do not miss the starches in my diet. I feel better and my arthritis seems to be a LOT better! I do not have the aches and pains I usually do and the stomach upset is almost all gone!!. I am really trying to learn this program and it is a struggle at times and I get frustrated sometimes because this is a learning way of eating. But--I CAN do it and do it right and lose lose lose!!
