good for you for trying!
this is an old thread just to let you know.
I follow a fairly low carb diet, stopped counting just eating healthy foods and really watching staying away from breads, rice, potatoes, pasta, corn, peas, the starchy foods.
I eat mostly meats and vegetables.
I don't eat much fruit and be sure to take vitamins and supplements.
good luck! I use www.sparkpeople.com
to get nutritional support. you can track your diet, exercise, blog, spark groups for additional support. I have used this site for years....
