Like "I gave up on diets with chainging the way I eat counting carbs has given me the way to eat and not starve.Its hared to get started but once you get it working life is much better.I am still dropping the LBS slowly but I didnt get them all in one day so they will not go away in a day.I eat a lot better now then I ever have in my life and I am a lot more content with out having all the carbs .
