Love those Bad Boys.....

Thursday, May 17, 2018

OK Sparkers..... I need some ideas on how to kick my nasty habit. CARBS seem to rule my life. I realize most foods do have carbs (some good and some oh so BAD). I seem to be attracted to the Bad Boys. I track my food every day. Even if I have what I consider a healthy diet, the carbs pile up and the weight does not go down. I have increased my activity (have a Fitbit that helps me keep track). I drink my water. I am limited a bit due to allergies, asthma, and osteoporosis. Since I had surgery for a hernia repair 5 years ago, a broken hip 3 years ago, my weight keeps going up. Oh yeah.... I'll be 68 in a few months. emoticon

    I hear you! I’m 61 and I am heavy from too much of the ‘healthy food’. For me works when I stay in my kcal intake range. I don’t trigger my sugar craving by eating refined sugars. Just in fruits. Eating full grain no white flour. Little meat.

    Since carbs seem to multiply so easy and trip a good person up, I would suggest removing them to a low low low amount for 3-5 days. I try and stay under 20 a day myself, even closer to 10 improves how my day goes. If I swing up I can tell the difference in my cravings. Another thing I have removed most processed foods from my eating. No sugar is also a suggestion, which removes a lot of the problems. After the low carbs days, then add back a few till you find the "sweet" spot. It sounds hard but those two changes have made my life so much easier. Work it to how it works for you, I know some who are able to add back a lot more carbs adding even some fruit. Good luck finding what works for you.
