Calories and carb tracking

Tuesday, August 18, 2015

i have been way off the wagon and have come back to the plate again to lose this weight. My plan is to count calories as well as focus on reducing carbs. I want to focus on cleaner eating and think this may be a good path. Do any of you do this? Results? Advice...? I appreciate you all!

    Welcome back!!! I don't subscribe to any sort of "clean eating" program, but when I finally decided to lose the weight back in April, I began focusing on eating healthy, more natural foods. I follow the Food Addicts Anonymous food plan: http://www.foodaddictsanonymous.org
    /faa-food-plan

    with a few adjusments. You've got to make changes that make it realistic for you. Following that food plan, which focuses on LOTS of veggies, as well as whole grains, low-fat dairy, and healthy fat - which to me equates to clean eating - I'm down 30 pounds. It's all about fueling your body with the right stuff.

    Good luck, girl! emoticon

    I am a firm believer in clean eating but that seems to be easier said than done. I do slip up occasionally. I try to have my homemade bars or other clean/whole foods ready to grab.

    Cutting out "junk" carbs is a great place to start, white things...bread/pasta/rice, anything with added sugar like breakfast cereals, cakes, sweets, soda, add-ins to coffee.

    Cutting those cuts lots of rubbish empty carbs strait off.

    I eat lower carb, try and keep net carbs around 100-120 which leaves space for eating things like beans, vegetables, fruit and getting plenty of fibre.
