Low carb is the only thing that has ever worked for me too, Bianca. Welcome to the group!!!

Hi, I'm Bianca. I've done low carb before and wonder why the heck I ever go off! I love it! Back to stay... To the poster taking Alli~you need to stick to a low-FAT plan, check and see how many fats you are allowed daily, okay?

I have seen the Alli in stores and the cookbooks and am really interested in it. Maybe you could tell us something about it. How do you like it so far? Have you encountered any problems with it? Do you like the recipes? I collect cookbooks. LOL.

I'm on the Alli plan. I have the book with the recipies. I guess I need to look at it a little more. Thanks for the info. I just noticed when I was putting in my foods for Spark that I was eating ALOT of carbs and thought maybe that was a problem. I've had ALOT of trouble losing weight and I've tried Weight Watchers, South Beach, counting calories and now I'm on to Alli. Thanks for responding and good luck. Have a wonderful day!

Have you chosen a low carb plan yet? If not then you need to and you need to buy the book for your plan. What snacks you can have depends on your plan.

Most meat has no carbs - beef, poultry, pork, lamb, veal, fish, eggs, some seafood. You have to be careful with processed meats. Some like ham have added sugar, like honey ham. Oils and butter. Some Cheese like Monterey Jack, gruyere, cheddar, ricotta, fontina, mozzarella, cream cheese, Swiss, string cheese, Laughing Cow Cheese, and muenster are very low in carbs. Salad veggies are usually very low in carbs. Some whipped creams. Mushrooms, cucumbers, celery, alfalfa sprouts, bok choy, radishes have minimal carbs.

If you are truly hungry then you should eat. Hunger usually disappears within days of starting on low carb. Eat protein if you are hungry.

For snacks - pork rinds, hard boiled eggs, deviled eggs, cheese, meat roll ups, celery with low carb peanut butter or cream cheese, sugar free dill pickles, sunflower seeds, low sugar jerky, pepperoni chips, sugar free jello, lettuce roll ups, cheese stuffed mushrooms, low carb dip like spinach, nuts.

What DOESN'T have carbs? I also find that I eat my fat intake for the day and I'm still starving because I'm not eating the carbs I used to. Is there some sort of withdrawal period? I need help on suggestions for snacks? Everything I have has carbs. Even fruit has carbs. I DESPERATELY need help. I'd appreciate it. Thanks and have a great day!

Hi! I'm Karen from California and I'm new to this team. I've been on SP since May 4, 2008 and I joined and unjoined some other low-carb teams. I couldn't do the Alternative Day diet (I think that's the name of it) where one gets a "free" meal and I can't remember what Atkins' teams I tried.) Anyway, it seemed to me that after so much time doing low carb and now having problems with it, it was time to go back to the basics!

Now and then I am tempted to go low-cal (a friend of mine is doing Weight Watchers right now), but I remind myself of the many, many, many, many, many times I tried low-cal and the dismal results that followed. Basically, I like low carb. Sure, I miss some of those white, good-for-nothing starchy carbs--rice, potatoes, pasta and bread--but I have had enough experience to know that give me a half cup of pasta and I"ll eat a pot full!

Happy to be here. I got the Dummies book.

Just do the best you can for right now. It's really hard to lose weight after losing a loved one and I consider pets in that group. emoticon

Welcome! I've been struggling lately...mostly due to emotional issues (had to put my dog to sleep last week) and eating good one day, bad the next, so lost nothing in 2 weeks. Trying to get back.

I hope you have a good week... :)

Hello,

I live in Rockwall, east of Dallas. I've just started with SparkPeople and am hoping to lose about 50 pounds. I was recently diagnosed with t-II diabetes and am on Metformin. I'm trying to stick to a low-carb diet in order to avoid the side effects I've heard with Metformin. The last few days have been hard - I fell going down the steps outside and hurt my back so I am having trouble moving around - exercise is out for now.

Great to meet everyone and I look forward to sharing during this journey!

Diana
