The big craze now does seem to be low carb, which doesnt work for me. I've tried those diets in the past and I get foggy brained and extremely lethargic. I am on Southbeach which a lot of people think is low carb. However, I've never eaten so healthy in my life. I have to have 1 cup of veggies with breakfast, 2 cups with lunch and 2 cups with dinner. Plus, I have some sort of fresh veggie for my 2 snacks each day..ie. celery with laughing cow cheese or natural peanut butter. I eat two fresh fruits a day. The allowed fats are very limited and they are only the healthy fats...ie, extra virgin olive oil. All bread, rice and pasta are whole grain only and meats are the non-fatty cuts only....ie, no ribs or dark meat! I would say that I am following a whole food diet, however, the structure of following the Southbeach plan helps me to stay on-plan. I'm sure I will be tweaking the plan to fit my lifestyle later down the road
