Default Following the Canada Food Guide....

I'm frustrated.

I've been doing low carb/primal for a few days now. I was feeling really good but I'm exhausted, and I feel my mood slowly going into the depression slump. It went like that when I tried low carb, I think because of the lack of complex carbs.

I've tried calorie counting but it really triggers the binge eating for me.

On the Canada Food Guide website it says it's not designed as a weight loss tool, so how would I incorporate that into weight loss?

Personally I feel any diet that restricts any food group isn't a good idea. That's why I like Weight Watchers - their good health guidelines help you get a well balanced diet. The points system also makes it easy to determine how much you are eating during the day.

You could try the weight loss version of the US food pyramid. Go to www.mypyramid.gov. It's all free and you can track your foods there as well.

Restricts any food group????? HUH? The canada food guide is based on the food groups. Sugar is not a food group, chips are not a good group. I tried weight watchers and it didn't work for me. I was able to make too many crappy food choices.

I am also following the Canadian food guide. It's not designed for weight loss in particular but it is designed for ideal healthy eating. I use it as a guide for my daily meal plans. Also, a guide for proper portion/serving sizes.

If you are gonna reduce your carbs, I suggest reducing refined carbs (white bread, white pasta, rice etc...) but don't be afraid of complex carbs (whole grain, oatmeal, fruits etc..)
