About how many carbs do you think a person should limit themselves to in order to lose weight? I know it's different depending on the person, but does anybody know a ballpark figure or range for me to aim for and try out?
I've tried Atkins in the past and just couldn't stick to it. I don't like knowing that I can't have certain things, so I've decided to just do my own low-carb diet. I found out in February that I have Diabetes. I immediately cut out sodas and started drinking more water, and I lost 4 pounds just doing that.
This past week, I've dropped 5 pounds simply by being more active and cutting out some the sugar and flour, so apparently sugar is what was making me fat, because everytime I lower my sugar intake, I lose weight quickly. Now I just have to try to wean myself off of it completely and also start aiming for a certain number of carbs per day, just to keep me in line so I don't go overboard. I NEED some structure, but not too much!
