Also, and most important ( haha ) I like not having to count calories or points or anything else ...too stressful

I started eating low carb because I got gestational diabetes when I was pregnant. It felt awful. Then a couple years ago I found out my blood sugar was way high due to my thyroid. I started eating low carb and noticed I just felt better overall. At the time I was eating 100 net grams or less.

This time I'm eating Lower carb even more and I'm finding if I keep it under 40-60 grams I do better and need to eat less. Percentage wise it's about 1/4 to 1/3 of my calories. It's pretty evenly split between days, proteins and fats, or slightly higher on fats

After reading Dr. Atkins New Diet Revolution, I decided this was a plan I could do for life. That was 10 years ago and still going strong

Because I have tried just counting calories and it doesn't work. I am hungry all the time, and always dreaming about my next meal. With this I can eat then continue my life, (PERFECT)
