Cool Wanting to try low carb

Hi
I am a diet failure but thought I might like to explore low carbing. I don't want anything that is too restrictive or too hard to understand the concept of.
Any help would be appreciated

Would also add that I don't want to totally give up dairy or fruit (but small servings would be fine)
I love vegetables as well

Hi Projectjudi,
Welcome,,,,,,This is totally doable. There are berries and lowcarb veggies and meat and some really nice desserts like cheesecake with this Woe. There is a very active thread that is on this page you could Join for carb sensitive dieters. I recommend you dive in and enjoy some bacon and eggs.

Best Wishes,,,,

Plus you could join the Atkins Thanksgiving Challenge to lose 5 by then. I bet you would lose a lot more than that! But goals are good. Lose it slow or fast, doesn't matter.

this is an easy WOE once you get into ketosis. You may go through a Atkins flu first as your body gets into the fat burning mode. Some folks go through it for a few days and some longer depending on how much you are insulin resistant

Once you get into ketosis you will feel real good.

The most flexible low-carb/moderate-carb plan I know is the Insulin Resistant Diet framework. It allows up to 30 grams of carb per meal (basically two slices of bread, or a bag of chips or a cookie, but not all three). It limits your carbs to a moderate level in an easy, flexible way, and because you pair what carbs you DO eat with protein, it stops your blood sugar from spiking too fast.

Even though I eat much lower carb than this most of the time, knowing I can eat up to 30 grams of carb/meal gives me great flexibility. The guidelines are really easy, too:
  • LINK: Never eat carbs alone. Always link them with protein with every meal or snack.
  • BALANCE: For each serving (15 grams) of carbs, balance it with at least one serving (9 grams) of protein
  • LIMIT: Do not eat more than two servings (30 grams) of carbs in any meal (15 grams per snack)

Within that basic framework, I have a lot of flexibility. And it's a very easy way to ease into lower-carb without too much hassle. If you find that you feel better or lose faster with even lower carb, you can do so.
