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.

[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.
