  • Timon0201, yes, I started by saying that I would only have one square a day (70%). I am going to try 90%. Maybe that'll stop me! lol
  • nill4me and amehrkens, how often do you have chocolate? I think that my chocolate consumption is really getting in the way of my weight loss (I eat 4-5 squares a day). I am addicted. Tonight, I made Perlmutter's chocolate truffles from scratch. MISTAKE (I ate three truffles just making the darn things!) I gave up my…

  • I am just beginning this life change also and I could use some support and am willing to give support. I could also use as many ideas as possible (so I will check out the Low Carber Daily Group--thanks, Dragonwolf!). Please add me!
  • I'll post the results. myheartsabattle, What's gross about the diet?
  • I just started the the low carb, high fat (moderate protein) based on reading Grain Brain too. As I read, it just all made sense. I have never been on a low carb diet before (always low fat), but I feel like I get tired easily, hungry too fast, and my mental clarity is not what is used to be (I am sure that some of this is…
