I am not a carb counter, per se. Years ago I joined Curves and was very successful at losing weight. Once I sort of "fell of the wagon" and started eating horribly again I gained back my lost weight. What I really loved about Curves was not the exercise, but the diet. The book comes with a diet plan with recipes and such, which I found so easy. I don't have to count calories, I don't have to count carbs. I just have to stick to the ideas in the book. It's the only thing that has ever worked for me. So, even though I have long since abandoned my membership there, I keep the book close.
I am not successful at counting things. I tried WW, and the whole counting points thing was SO ANNOYING to me. And sometimes I couldn't really find information on what the point values were for a given food. Too complicated and I couldn't see doing it. I'm not good at writing things down, or hauling around a book with calorie contents etc. So, this works for me.
Anyone one else similar?
