The no carb/low carb way of eating is all the rage these days and it’s been around for a long time. It really does work! I began my journey (on and off the wagon) several years ago. I learned that your body translates carbs as sugar and also realized how much sugar is in practically everything I love to eat! For example, there are 27g of carbs in one banana – that’s more carbs than you can have in a day (during the first phase). Needless to say, I can’t remember the last time I ate a banana – seems I never leave phase one either, hahaha!
I do find the cocktails I use to like are now too sweet. I pretty much stick to club soda and a flavored vodka. Also, the occasional Sangria (it’s not low carb)…..See what I mean?! I can’t give up my Sangria!
All in all, I do find it to be the easiest plan to stick to (especially having a desk job where I’m sitting most of the day), but I admit that I struggle with being able to maintain it long-term.
Is there a special diet that you follow?
