What is your opinion of low-carb diets?


I am insulin resistant so the only way I can lose weight is to keep my carbs down. I don't go really low, but as low as I can tolerate. I love carbs.

I think a well balanced diet works best. Any diet that restricts one element only seems to work temporarily.

I just make sure that I get what my body needs. I like carbs, but I do limit them. However I do not follow a low-carb diet. Our body needs some carbs.

I think one needs to consider what is best for you and to be
sure you are getting all the nutrients necessary to remain health

I eat breakfast every day but 4 or 5 times a month, it's not very healthy!

I do but usually forget them as the year goes on.....I plan for January 14, 2014 to start back on marking what I eat. Nov and Dec just let go........I picked the 14th hoping all the goodies I made will be gone. Make chocolate Rice Krisples and Vanilla one but do plan on taking them to church Sunday. But the Cinnamon rolls and partly cheese cake NOPE going to stay here. I say partly on cheese cake for didn't put sour cream on top as I usually do. Just cream cheese bottom.....During the year I do not do this. emoticon
