If I am Hungry, I just put a little natural peanut butter on a spoon and dip it in my flax seed that I grind up. Helps control cravings.

I've seen the miracle noodles in the store. We only got them in our stores here recently. I'm not really into pasta like most people are. I can take it or leave it.

Have you seen the Miracle Noodle? I've tried them and a similar product I found at the Asian Market. I can now have my 100 cal, low carb "pasta" dish!

I think lack of cravings is a huge reason why low carb works.

Hi, feeling much better on a low carb diet, and the fat has started dropping off. When I stay completely away from sugar and "sugar imitators" and sweet foods, with the exception of small amounts of whole fruit, and keep up with the water, I don't have the sugar cravings.

It is my belief that every person's body is different, and we all find our own way. But it is interesting how much I have in common with people who have found their solution in a low carb diet.

You are so right! The more I avoid the high glycemic carbs the better I feel. I also track calories. I have found that I can overeat healthy food too. LOL.

Thank you! I am watching my carbs but also watching my calories too. I feel so much better when I eat a lower carb diet and I find it is easier to control my cravings too.

I'm not real low carb either and try to stay around 100gms of carbs or less if I can. My M.D. doesn't want me above 125.

My carb intake varies....usually it's somewhere between 70-100 g (but more often nearer the 100 mark); however, I'm not a strict low-carber like those on Atkins or Dukan. I don't know for sure, but I suspect you'll get many different answers to this question.

I agree! Drinking water is very important! So many times we confuse hunger with thirst

Thanks for all the great tips! I am new to this group and this way of eating. Been at it for 56 days. I have lost 13 pounds so far. When I see that I feel pretty good about this. Just been stuck for the last 2 weeks..ugg.

I dont have alot of tips to offer yet, what does help me is drinking my water everyday. Its easier if I just drink water. Leave off the soda and tea. That way I get it all in.

I look forward to staying the course with you all! emoticon

My tips would be the following:

*Focus on what you CAN eat, not on what you can't.
*With that said, find some good recipes and experiment! Make it fun! Make it an adventure. :)
*Drink a lot of water
*Always have a plan. Familiarize yourself with good low carb choices at fast food places, restaurants, etc.
*Find others who live this lifestyle. We def live in a carb crazy world and it's good to associate with like minded people. I truly believe this is the way to eat. Just my opinion though. :)

I've seen that diet and the recommendation for it too. Actually the latest studies say that breakfast actually isn't even necessary. LOL. I forced myself to learn to eat breakfast for nothing. LOL. I now believe in intuitive eating - eat when you are hungry.

That doesn't apply to some people, GF. Diabetics and people with hypoglycemia have to space their carbs out. Some doctors recommend that people don't eat any carbs with breakfast as it can lead to cravings all day. It depends on your metabolism.

Focus on low glycemic veggies for your carbs. They have the most nutrients.
