good for you legs!!!! i know a coupla guys that tried to go on a low carb, caveman diet. eating very few veggies and fruits, no breads, mostly all meat. they have all had serious problems within a few years of starting this type of diet, including gout, high blood pressure, and other unspeakable digestive problems. glad to hear you're eating your veggies..

one trick i mentioned in another post; the next time you order take out chinese food, get kung po chicken or shrimp in garlic sauce, but order it steamed, with the sauce on the side. the places near me give you a small container of sauce, about a half pint, for 50 cents extra. since i don't use even half of the sauce they give you on my take out food, i save it and use it when i stir fry at home. it gives your dish an authentic restaurant taste. and your girl never has to know why it's so good...

I know a girl at work thats on the low carb diet and she's losing her hair. I guess your only suppose to be on it for so long and then make adjustments.....which she hasn't. Granted she's lost a lot of weight but now she's having to deal with this.

Ketosis gives you some G*dawful breath, too.

I have tried to cut out/cut down on "white foods" like potatoes, bread, rice, as well as sugar and fatty foods.

Works for me and is pretty easy to do.

I had a good laugh when I bought a pound of bacon and it's conspicuously labeled "LOW CARB"
