Oh how I love carbs...

Post by jessicabree on Tue Jan 25, 2011 10:25 pm

I'm a bit sick and I have been craving sugar and carbs (as usual) but I was trying to cut back. Then today I carb'd it up a bit and now I feel better. I hate that only carbs give me this instant energy boost! Its not a problem when I am not sick.

How do people every do atkins???

Your body needs carbs. People do lose weight on the Atkins diet but it's not healthy. All things in moderation. Smile

when I was in college, everybody did the Jane Brody careful carb diet to lose weight... funny how things changed to anti-carb.

And then they start eating carbs once they finish the diet and put the weight back on.

I have no idea Several of my friends are on a doctor directed diet that is extremely high in protein, low in carbs. I tried it for a few days. It isn't for me!

My problem is I am lazy and do not exercise. Period. Carbs, not so much the problem, lol!

I was having that problem last night too! I couldn't make it on a no carb diet. I'm glad that you are feeling better and let yourself have the carbs!

Maybe you should try this?? The Carb Lover's Diet I saw the book when I was entering giveaways on Rachael Ray's site. It sounds interesting, I don't personally know anyone on it though.

Ive done atkins and felt fantastic after the first 2 weeks and the weight came off super easy. i just don't have the willpower to do it full time.

i did atkins in college and it worked well for me... but i definitely need some carbs in my life now (especially now that i'm running on a pretty regular basis). i can live without pasta, but bread? never!

If I had to go without eating pasta, I'd get mean and cranky!
