That justing cutting carbs is not the answer. I have been reading this book called the south beach diet and ot really emphasises high fiber intake and fat to slow the digestion of your carbs to reduce insulin resistance!

On a diet like atkins even carbs from veggies are considered bad....not just grains, starches and sugars. I tried cutting all carbs atkins style and I felt sick and it took me 3 weeks of misery to lose 7 pounds. I gained it back in three days after I quite!

The sbd places more emphasis on eating certain foods at certain times and food combining as well as taking fiber suppliments with each meal. I am not eating grains, starches or sugars but now I know I can have those low glycemic veggies and the occasional piece of fruit as long as I eat it with protien, fiber and healthy fat!

That's sad :(  I know a few people in that group who follow very mainstream and IMO unhealthy diet advice such as extremely low fat, lots of whole grains, etc. It sounds like you're doing great!
