If you are going to eat low carb, I would recommend informing yourself about the Glycemic Index. This is an excellent resource and has lists for you of low GI foods. It also has a specific carb list.

And here is a site that has lists of low carb foods and a menu plan. Just scroll on through.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.

Been thinking about doing a diet plan as well... those recipes are indeed very helpful! :)
Sometimes me think what is love, and then me think love is what last cookie is for. Me give up the last cookie for you.

[QUOTE=lyndalou;888360] I had a friend who thought she could eat all the fat she wanted, i.e. a pound of bacon at a time. Not healthy at all, not to mention crazy.I have never gone full Adkins or any other and still lose the weight I want to.[ QUOTE]

Actually, it's a misconception that the Atkins Diet allows you to eat "a pound of bacon at a time", although the original & earlier editions did allow for more fats than are generally considered healthy. The current program, via the book Atkins for Life (definitely a worthwhile read!), is extremely healthy, varied, & you DO lose weight on it without feeling deprived or having to struggle to cook/comply with it. Both hubby & I (hubby in particular) lost quite a bit of weight utilizing it.
