So since I put on the extra weight I have been toying with going back on to a low carb diet. It to date has been the only diet that worked for me where I ended up losing 50lbs and kept it off until I slipped back into my old ways. First its amazing how diets end up being fads, when I did it before it was all the rage and everything was "low carb" complete with a heinz low carb ketchup (1g instead of 4g of carbs). Doing it the second time you can no longer find the stuff. Never the less my 6 week plan is weeks 1-2 40g of carbs (net), week 3-4 30g of carbs, and week 5-6 20g of carbs where my goal is to try and stay until I lose the weight I need (along with working out). This is a modified low carb diet, i will be keeping mainly away from red meat if I can staying with fishes and poultry to try minimize unhealthy fat. This is not to say if I go to a steak house im not having a steak.... hell will freeze over before that happens, its a low carb diet I'm allowed *LOL* just will make sure i get steamed veggies with it. For day one I did well, my gross carbs was at 40g which probably means approx 30-35g of net carbs.
