Low carb versus low calorie



Recommended Posts

Clarify I count total. That is what works for me. I don't have the time to pick it apart. Charting total is what I do. Not everyone will see eye to eye on this. So to say one is better than the other just is a matter of opinion.

I'm 12 days post op and have to admit I'm a bit intimidated by this whole counting thing. I've never been good at journaling & counting so I'm praying that I can get the hang of it so I can be successful like you all.

Try using one of the fitday.com or other counting sites on the web, they make it much easier.

I signed up for myfitnesspal.com on my phone today. I think it will work for me.

It really keeps me accountable, I hope you like it!

Journaling is what I do when I'm being uber cautious and serious about the counting. I use Livestrong.com - and though you have to be careful on the choices you're using on the website, it's still very helpful. Anyway, it's free!!! I tend to eat a lot of the same things too, so once it recognizes that it will put the option at the top of the list so I don't have to search for the best possible choice. I'm very picky and will crack open my Calorie King book to match the choices and even match the Nutrition Facts to everything too.

Good luck!

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

        I guess I could, but the idea of being out there for all to see just skeeves me out! Nope, not for me ;)

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
