Hello, I am at a path in the road with my weight loss, and am researching other options.
SB appeals to me because from what I've seen it promotes a very healthy lifestyle, with out propagating the idea that carbs are bad. I do have some questiions that I think are best answered by people who have done or who are doing SB..
1. I am a huge carb eater. My top foods are carbohydrates, and they are the first thing I think of when I'm hungry. Has anyone else gone from being like me to adopting the SB way of eating with out dying in the process? I am aware that its not like i will never eat these foods again, but I do know that how often I eat them and how much I eat will change. I am nervous about this..
2. My husband is not persuing this with me. Will it be difficult to make meals that are "good" for both of us ( something he can eat but I can eat, too, or eat with small alterations).
I haven't heard of people who have tried SB and not had success with it. ( trying as in following the plan relatively close, not trying as in one day and that's it.)
back in the day I did WW and it's just not cutting it. My belief is that it's no longer doing the thing because I can eat all my points in carbs and crap if I want to, rather than having some structure...
So, what do I want? Just advice and comments about how SBD has affected your life, how it has affected your family/shopping/ect..and how hard was it to get into it?
I really think that I can adopt this as a lifetime WOE because it does seem very healthy, not eliminating or ignoring food groups, but I just have to get started.
THank you much,
