Hi, new to this team . I have been reading a lot about low carb lately and have even tried it in the past . Not any particular program. I learned through experimenting that 20-30 carbs max seems to work for me for weight loss and that one way of sticking to it is to have a cheat day once in a while but of course not to go crazy. I try to keep it to a cheat meal though if I can. I haven't done so well since my kids have been out of school though. Stress eating and all but I feel that now I am ready to start again especially since all my summer clothes have become snug on me. emoticon

I love Protein Power and wish it were more popular. It's a great diet. The 30 Day Low Carb Diet solution is one of my favorite diet books. It is amazingly easy and goes right to the nitty gritty. I have 3 of the Eades diet books.

Hi, I'm Cheri and I am following the protein power plan. I followed it in college and lost a tremendous amount of weight but after having two kids and getting married gained it back and more so I am back on it. Hoping to reach my goal weight by my 40th birthday which is next year.

Welcome to the team! It's really good news that you your A1C is only mildly elevated as you may be able to be more conservative in your dietary restrictions. You might get away with doing something like a clean South Beach or a hybrid diet which focuses some on low glycemic carbs. You need to keep your net carbs under 150 a day though and add in some exercise. For starters nix the cereal, bread, and obvious sugary products.

I mostly try to do clean eating to some extent. There are different concepts of what the term means. For me it means minimally processed foods, less sodium, less artificial sweeteners, and less omega 6 fatty acids. No transfat, nitrites, nitates, hormones, antibiotics, additives, chemicals, pesticides, preservatives, dyes, junk food, fast food, sugar, high fructose corn syrup, fruit juice, farm raised fish, cured meats, caffeine, MSG, alcohol, soy, gluten, foods that come in tins containing bisphenol-A, microwave popcorn that contains perfluorooctanoic acid, low fat foods, diet foods,. I like fresh grass fed meat if I can afford it, wild caught fish, organic when possible. Lots of fruits, veggies, seeds, nuts, fresh lean meat, eggs, fish, seafood, healthy fats, high quality dairy, and some legumes. Minimally processed non-glutonous grains RARELY, like quinoa.

Hi, everyone. My name is Dawn. Last time I saw my doctor he said, and I quote, "Your A1C is a little high, you need to watch your carbs." That is it, nothing more was said about it. Nobody has told me how to do this, and eating healthy is just so expensive.

Anyway, I am married with one child at home, and two others that have either completely flown the nest or is home only every two weeks (one in college in another state, the other a truck driver). I myself am an insurance agent, so very not as active as I used to be when I was a nurse.

Anyway, nice to meet you.
