Low carb vs binge eating

So I decided that I'm going to do low Carb to try to control my binging.  I'm still going to eat a little fruit, but stay away from bread and other starches.

A person on my Facebook page was curious why I'm changing things.

It is not all sunshine and rainbows... I struggle every single day.  I wish it was easy just to lose weight and not have to worry about it anymore, but many of you know it is a life long battle.  

I'm anxious to see if this tweek in my diet will help me.

  1. When you cut your carbs back, you will lose a significant amount of weight. If you've never been on a low-carb diet before, you should check labels on food that you're uncertain if it's low-carb or not.

    I know how food is a struggle. Low-carb has made it easier for me. There are a lot of good low-carb foods and meals you can have. If you feel inclined, try out new foods (before low-carb I had never had avocado, almond milk, plain Greek yogurt, or flax seed and now I like them all), and you can make your favorite recipes but with low-carb substitutes. You can't fail at this diet if you have plenty of yummy low-carb food around. Good luck!

    1. About 50, which is mostly from fruit. For weight loss, I think it's best to stay under 50, because that is the threshold for being in ketosis, which means the body is burning body fat for fuel instead of carbs.

  2. That is interesting. I have been struggling for a long time now with my weight and really need to do something about it now.

    I was recently (well, back in March/April) diagnosed with Celiac's Disease so I typically don't eat breads and pasta, which are full of carbs so that has helped a lot, but people (like me) didn't realize that carbs are in things like fruit.

    I so need a change and honestly, I have no reason not to as I have a ton of time to work on ME!

    Any suggestions?
