I too thrive on a lower carb diet. I eat beans, legumes and things of that nature, and I have been known to eat sweet potatoes and squash, but ultimately, I'm not a large consumer of other types of carbs. In my diet, nothing is off limits, but I have found that when I eat a lower carb, I am fuller longer, feel the most energetic and don't feel the need to eat a bunch of sugar. Now, some people do better with more carbs, and I am nobody to argue that. But I will agree with Kaplods. Nobody can even say one size fits all when it comes to diet.
