    New to low carb

    Heya, I'm thinking of trying low carb! I weighed myself this morning and I'm 10st 2lbs!!! Back in June I was 8st 9lbs I've basically just been binging on take aways and junk food and feel like crap! I have a major sugar addiction so was thinking of trying low carb. I did Atkins before a few years ago but found it too difficult sticking to under 20 carbs a day! I'm lactose intolerant so means I can't have dairy and wheat is also a no no for me. Any suggestions? Should I cc and low carb? I used to lose weight when I stuck to 1200 cal a day but now I just keep binging in the evenings! I know it's different for everyone but roughly how many carbs should be a starting point for me? I'm getting married next August and want to lose weight, but want this to be a lifestyle change and not a drastic diet that I'll only fail on!
    Help!

    Generally keeping your carbs under 50g, getting them mostly from vegetables and spreading them out through the day should keep you slowly losing weight. For faster loss you would probably need to cut them more, but could have more calories.

    Alpro unsweetened soya milk is a great low carb lactose free product.
    dieting is hard. being overweight is hard. choose your hard.

    hey im new to this also and a complete sugar addict! best advice i have for low carb is grating and dry frying cauliflower in place of rice and using celeriac in place of potatoes for mashed potatoes. I actually like cauliflower rice more now because it cooks in about 5 mins, so much quicker than normal rice and it is alot lower in carbs. If you add a small drop of lime and a sprinkle of coriander it is so nice with a curry. the celeriac is great as a mashed topping on cottage pie.
