Low Carb works for me!!
I recently lost 61 pounds on low carb. I hit my main goal and was able to set a new smaller goal. I was so excited, but I was getting burnt out on low carb. So I decided to make the switch to Weight Watchers. YES, I knew without a doubt I would gain a few pounds back due to the inclusion of carbs and sugars in that diet, and I was okay with that. At least, I thought I was. I kept my calories under control, including counting calories for fruits and veggies, even though they are 0 points. I still gained back 4-6 pounds. I thought I'd be okay with that, but I wasn't. It was frustrating to me. I found myself over engulfing in snacks, like eating almost an entire back of pretzels when I should have only had 36 sticks. More than once. Yeah... bad habits never die... So back to low carb I went! It's been about 1.5, 2 weeks and I'm finally back where I was weight wise. I really hoped WW would be more appropriate for me for maintenance, something I could stick with for the rest of my life. I'm not sure how much more weight I would have gained. I don't want to know. But I do know low carb works and works well for my body. I find that I don't have *as much* cravings and uncontrollable desire to binge. I think I will still allow myself the occasional apple or handful of grapes, but I think this is it for me. It's a really good thing I love, love, love chicken and eggs!!
