    I havnt yet chosen a diet plan besides eating healthier of course. But I am wondering if low carb is right for me. Ive always, always liked bread and know I cant cut it out completely.

    Do you find youre more tired on a low carb diet than u were before?

    What are some foods you eat when ur craving those carbs?

    My weight loss journey has just begun and because my weight gain has crept up slowly, I know it will take longer to lose it. My goal is to lose 1 stone in 3 months, mainly weight in my stomach area is the problem.

    Any tips will help!!

    Hi and welcome. Its quite quiet on this low carb area many more people on Atkins on dukan diaries and I'm in Atkins although I'm doing carb cycling ( one day low carb one day high carb) there are bread alternatives but you will find once you get through the first two weeks on low carb that you won't crave it that much and you will eventually get lots of energy!

    Steve if you get past the first couple of weeks you shouldn't crave so much

    Try the Keto Diet. I loved it.
    It's hard for the first one or two weeks but then it's easy to follow and the weight just falls off! I lost 2 stone and kept it off for about 9 months.
    When I started the diet for the second time, I got a keto rash (red itchy dots all over arms, legs and torso) so had to stop but I'd say it's definitely worth a try anyway as this doesn't happen to many people. If you look on LiveStong and BodyBuildingForum it's got all the details of how it works and what to do. It's amazing. I wish I could do it again :(
