Hi everyone! I'm a long time calorie counter and it's been the thing that's worked best for me, but I notice each time I start watching my intake that I eat a lot of carbs.
I love carbs. I have carbs at almost every meal. And I mean like grains or bread. I often have two eggs and some whole grain cereal for breakfast, probably 20gs of carbs from that.
I will often eat a sandwich for lunch. 20-40ish grams from that.
And at dinner I usually go all out. I'll have quinoa, brown rice noodles, something with tortillas or bread.
I just find my meals aren't satisfying without these carbs. I try to have a salad or vegetable with my meals, and snack on fruits and nuts. I drink almond milk.
I think my diet is generally healthy, but it seems I love carbs too much!
I obviously eat other things, cheese sometimes, eggs, chicken, veggies, nuts, fruits, beans...etc.
So, I might like to try low-carb for a while and see what happens. It could be good or bad, but I'll see.
Where is a good place to start? Or places, I know there's a lot of info out there. To be honest I don't think I'd like to try Atkins, but maybe that's just me being prejudiced since I've read so many things about the Atkins diet that I disagree with.
