    Hi all

    i know im a bit of a returning NEWBIE but im a bit of a geek when it comes to low carb, nutritional science etc....

    I completely know 100% what i will be doing to maintain my weight once i lose the flab.
    "healthy eating" as we are told by the media, the government, the NHS etc is a crock. There, i said it.

    I guess i hoped for some insight on this thread, some debate and maybe some new learnings from others who have really looked at this stuff before, or questions from those who havent...

    well, fat doesnt make people fat, or unwell. Carbs do. Glucose is the cause of all obesity in this world. There are hundreds and hundreds of studies with conclusive proof of this that get ignored and buried by the food giants who manufacture the food that is making people ill.

    I intend to eat a diet as close to that of our ancestors as possible, Meat, dairy, limited fruits and nuts, vegetables, salads and occasional potatoes/rice.

    No flour, no sugar and no cereals. how about you? :)

    I think cutting carbs out of my diet when I go back to eating will be the way to go for me because I am a carb-aholic (or was!)

    I'm definitely going to be steering clear of carbs, I know they don't work for me in any shape or form, so will be planning on building a menu that works for me, mostly based on meat & veg

    Bacon and eggs sounds tempting, or probably omelette maybe, or cold meats / fish; something like that.

    I am definatley going to follow a lower carb eating plan, for the rest of my life :).
    I dont eat meat, but I do enjoy fish.
    I am not missing bread or cereals. Circumstances when not at home, have meant I have eaten bread about 2 or 3 times in the last 3 months. I dont think that is too bad at all :).
    Once or twice, I have had a craving for pasta, but not recently.
    Its all about finding the right balance for your own body :)

    i think i'll do the calorie counting and eat things in moderation. Im not going to say im never going to eat carbs like pasta again because i love pasta so im going to limit it to having maybe 1 carb a week. I think that if i cancel everything "bad" out of my diet then im likely to straw and eat loads one day, so a little here and there seems better personally.

    deffo low carb here .... I'm a bit silly really as my hubby lost over 7 st 10 years ago following the (then) controversial Atkins Diet, and has successfully maintained. He does relax on holiday and then back to the "norm" when we get home - bacon, egg & mushrooms for brekkie, snacks of nuts & cheese, and meat & low carb veggies for dinner followed by berries and cream.

    There is a wide variety of foods you can eat, and it doesn't stop us socialising/eating out with friends as he makes his choices accordingly. It's about retraining your taste buds, and educating yourself of what you should or should not eat - because it's "against" all the low fat/low calorie way of brain training that we've be exposed too, people tend to question it ... the proof, as they say, is in the eating!! And, I live with living proof it works!

    Good luck.

    The Harcombe diet sounds very much like food-combining (the fit for life diet comes to mind). Whole foods are always a good idea as your body can break them down much more easily and they wont produce cravings.

    I'm not a snacker, don't have a sweet tooth. My problem is portion control, I eat man-sized meals. I also (used to) drink far too much. Hopefully just having small amounts of soups and shakes and cutting out the booze completely while on this diet will teach my body that I don't need so much.

    I really want to live a low-carb lifestyle once I get to goal, as I think it's the only way for me to maintain, but I've tried atkins and similar so many times before and find it sooo hard! I always think it will be easy but then realise that I just don't like bacon and eggs without brown sauce, and that pretty much every meal I eat is full of carbs! Still, I guess that's how I got here, maybe a few months on exante will change my tastebuds?
