I was on the SBD before and am currently starting again. I lost 20 lbs and put back on 10 lbs. So, right now I am trying to lose 10 lbs.
I'd like to find a diet that has a good balance of healthy foods - I hate having to completely give up good grains in Phase 1 of the SBD, it plays havoc with my body. I tried WW a few years back and it didn't seem to work for me like it did when I was in my 30's.
My weight is carried kind of all over - I'm 5' 4" and currently weigh 145. I tend to carry in my stomach and hips/thighs. I know 10 lbs doesn't seem like a lot but I really can't afford to buy new clothes right now and don't want to!
I'm 48 years old, have multiple sclerosis so my energy level is an issue. I find diets that are too restrictive make me even more tired. It seems like a Mediterranean diet of some sort might be a good choice (except for the fish which I don't eat). I'm not a huge veggie eater which is always a challenge but I try!
Thanks for your advice and ideas
