I would suggest incorporating as much beans, lentils and peas as possible in your diet too. You can use quinoa in salads, which is full of protein and really versatile. For snacking, hummus and carrots is a great combination.
Here at work we're all on low carb diets. Anyone have any good reciepes for low carb diets?
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.
