Gregg and I are back on the low carb diet. I need a break from all the carby foods we have been eating. I haven’t really gained any weight only about 3lbs. Which is fine, I just worry that Gregg might gain too much and he tries so hard not to indulge.
So that’s it! We are low carbing it until Christmas. Not too low. About 20-50 carbs a day. I don’t want us to starve! We will be following the south beach plan, more or less. Low carbing is actually very easy. No rules really. All you need to do is cut out all the “white” foods.
Stop eating white flour. So, no more white breads, no crackers and no more baked goodies. Cut back on fruit and have berries. Eat lots of veggies, but not the starchy ones like potatoes and corn. Rice is ok as long as its brown. No milk, which I don’t drink any ways.You can eat as much meat as you want, but I try to stay with normal portions. Cheese is good too. And you can have real butter and cream.
That’s about it. Pretty simple. Just need to read labels and make sure the carb count is low and if the fiber is high that is great. You can subtract the fiber from the carb count.
The best part I like about low carb, my tummy feels better. Not so bloated anymore. I guess we’ll see if it works. Last time we didn’t stick to it cause there was too much going on. I hope we can this time.
