People have been checking out my wife...
She was already curvy as hell but over the past 6 months she has lost 50 pounds and just gotten more curvaceous, and people ask her what she has been doing, what kind of diet she has been on, and if she has taken up any new exercise regimen.
When she answers they are usually shocked, stunned, and often thrown into a state of denial as they cannot wrap their heads around the fact she has experienced this weight loss and shapoe shifting with no calorie restrictions and actually eats a little more, there has been no radical increase in exercise, and she has increased the amount of fat in her diet while reducing the cabs down to 20-30 grams a day.
For me I eat the same way and this just maintains a healthy body weight after I set out to lose an extra 15 pounds.
You can put me in the lower carb group... I maintain my svelte 150 pounds and usually stay under 100 grams of carbs a day while other people I know limit the carbs to much less.
This seems to be the experience of many of us who have adopted a lifestyle and way of eating that runs contrary to the low fat trend that has been going on for the past 30-40 years and what is now being seen by more and more people as being some really bad medical advice.
I don't want to start another endless debate on this and was wondering who else is doing this and what their experiences have been like... this might also be a good place to share ideas, info, and recipes because a low carb diet does not have to be boring.
