I feel better on this diet and I feel like I am in control.
YEP. Carbs are my enemy too!
Compliance was not ever my issue. The Carbs in everything else are. It's actually easy to do something that works. Very-very difficult to continue something that does not work. And the simplicity of IP products is a plus. Using the processed foods a short while for long term good is incredibly sensible. Just pay attention to your body. Allergies and other physiological issues can
probably be worked around esp once you know what you are doing. Ruth Ann and Lisa can also attest to this piece and have shared what they learned with the family on here!
