"Fat DOES NOT make us fat. Carbs do."

Fat CAN make you fat, as can carbs and protein.
Eating more calories than your body needs makes you fat, no matter what the macros in those calories.

"There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when circumstance permit. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses, only results."

Carbs don't either if eaten in proper amounts. No food is taboo if eaten according to the Spark People guidelines. If deprivation diets work for you, keep doing it. Nothing says success like succeeding. If however, you get tired of it, don't fear carbs, just control them. I've tried most "diets" and have finally concluded that balanced is the way for me.

Whatever method you use to get to your goal weight, don't forget the important part is not in getting there, but in staying there. Maintenance is where so many of us fail to follow through. Getting to your goal is only the beginning and that does not end, at least not till your spirit and your body part ways. Never, ever quit!

After a year of low-carb, I have moved on to ketogenic eating. I like it! Also got two types of home tests to track my levels of ketosis. So exciting. Also, down 2 more pounds. "LCHF" stands for: "Low carb, high fat." Fat DOES NOT make us fat. Carbs do. #fatloss

"SUGAR IS THE DEVIL" - Just telling it like it is. When it comes to the hard truth about sugar, obesity, and disease, both the sugar industry and Harvard University have A LOT to answer for. Glad the facts now are pouring out. Get rid of added sugar and too many starchy carbs like they're the plague.
