but see very few low-carb foods. I see tons and tons of websites, but with little actual evidence. I mean I know it works, and I know it exists, but what am I missing?
I'm so tired of people telling me that an "ultra-low carb diet is not safe or practical" when they don't even know what the **** they're talking about, as I've never said "I'm going no-carb" or anything even close. I only said I wanted to cut back. So, obviously people off the Internet aren't the right ones to ask.
The main culprits:
Are there any other problem foods I'm missing?
I eat pasta a lot. So I'm going to cut back on that. I also eat bread a lot, so I'm going to cut back on that, too. I rarely have potatoes, so I'm not worried about them, same goes for rice. Actually, I plan to completely cut out bread and pasta for a month and see how it goes.
Will this get my carb count down (I mean I really just eat too many- I only had breakfast and lunch today, and so far my carb count is at 101g), or am I missing something?
EX: Tonight we're having beef stew, with onion, carrots, garlic, corn, potatoes.
If I only have 1 cup, with beef, some broth, onion, carrot, garlic and corn, minus the potatoes, is that okay? Or since they've been soaking together for 2 hours, am I still somehow ingesting too many carbs? I don't know how this stuff works- I seem to find conflicting information everywhere I look.
