Hi Sandra, can definitely understand! Had a very off-plan weekend myself and am struggling to get back on it.

Roll on March, I say...can't wait!

Hi all, thank you for your words of encouragement. I have decided to up the carbs and introduce more fruit , yogurt and a few higher carb veggies. I have been feeling fed up of my food as i seem to have been stuck in a rut eating the same things day in day out. Had some mango with yogurt today and it was gorgeous. Will see how I get on with some carrots tomorrow!

I know how you feel Sandra. I'm calorie counting and although can be a bit tedious I like everything I'm eating and not hungry. Good luck and mango sounds fab

I think if really low carb isn't feeling right for you, then introducing a few more things can only be a good thing xxx

I'm upping my carbs to about 40g too (30g technically as the rest come from meds). Only on days I feel I need it - so it basically means as much veg as I like. That's the plan anyway, in practice I haven't gone up to that yet. But it's nice having the option there if I need it.
I do think this is a spectacularly hard time of year to diet, I have to say. I seem to do best when it's warmer - April - October. The trouble is not wanting to undo hard work in the winter months!

Morning all, have increased my carbs quite significantly to about 80g - 100g and have lost 1lb , will see if this continues,or is just a fluke! I have enjoyed the variety of veg etc
Have a great day everyone, it's FRIDAY

Great Sandra and well done
22nd February, 2013 #1734
Well done on the pound hun!

I think if I remember rightly between 50g and 100g is the optimal weight loss carb target on grain free diets like primal - it could turn out to be a great fit for you.

That is great news Sandra! Well done on the 1 pound.
Now you must try the baked salmon with spicy mango salsa - one of my favourite meals of all!!
24th February, 2013 #1737
Oh I had forgotten about that Jane, must give it a try, is the mango salsa recipe in your diary?
When are you off to India? How exciting x

Oh you must try it :-)
Spicy mango salsa
Chop up in to small chunks:
Half a cucumber
Half a large mango
Medium red onion
Large red chilli
Add juice from a lime and a large handful of freshly chopped coriander. Refrigerate for at least half an hour.
This is also delicious with cottage cheese.
For the salmon I just sprinkle with crushed fennel seeds and crushed chillies and back for 20 mins.

Sounds delicious, can't wait to try it, thanks Jane xx

Well done on the pound, Sandra!
80-100g carbs is about where I'm aiming at the moment (albeit missing on the high side sometimes ) and it's a comfortable place for me. It does give you tremendous flexibility where veg is concerned - just be a bit cautious of the starchy ones when you first reintroduce them and I'm sure you'll be fine.
