  • uh we're twins ok i LOVE carbs like i can't not eat them. instead of NO carbs why dont you limit your carbs, plan out what carb you will eat at each meal then instead of caving in and eating a carb here and there, you can look forward to your next carb "i really want that bagel BUT i now if i wait until dinner i can have that dinner roll" that kind of a thing!!! ive tried that with eating good during the week, looking forward to my cheat day haha :P

  • You NEED carbs, need them for energy, need them to regulate blood glucose levels....It's not about going no carb, it's about making healthy carb choices....cut out white bread, pasta, potatoes, rice and sugar and replace them with whole grains: brown rice, sweet potatoes, whole grain breads and pasta, quinoa, barley, oats, bulgar and having true portion sizes. I eat roughly 120 grams of carbs a day, I'm a type 2 diabetic and compared to the average American that's "low"! But it's a healthy low.

  • The only way I have found to go "no Carb" is to NOT have them in the house. I love carbs too, but a low carb diet is good for many people. Good Luck!

  • I have really cut down on carbs since being diagnosed type 2 diabetic. Eventually you get used to it. It's crazy how many carbs are in things you'd never suspect.
