Good for you! You are on the right track now. Making the decision is a big step in the right direction. As I said in my post try cutting carbs. I was really surprised. I feel lighter and better. And I am one of those people that love my french bread but I have not felt deprived at all. So start slow and begin by walking around the block and cutting some of the carbs out. You will be surprised at how mucher better you will feel in a short period of time. I am pulling for you! TeaView Thread
I found a great cookbook by George Stella - the Good Carb Chef. I have tried several recipes out of it and they have turned out delicious and I am no Julia Childs. My point being is I never considered cutting carbs before and it is really working. So my tip is to try cutting carbs and see if it works for you. It definitely has for me and I am really surprised!View Thread
