Lanie: I said I don't rem. losing an ounce on no carbs diet.
But my memory is not very good. Thinking about it again, I do rem. I lost weight, maybe 15 pounds. I seem to recall that at about 173 I hit a wall, and could not go below that.
(Also, maybe I ate too much of the non carbs stuff like meat, pecans, etc., to fill up).
At some point I went off the no carb diet, and just used tips, eating pop corn instead of peanut butter for a snack at lunch, for instance, reading the back of food containers for sugar, fat, now carbohydrates, and I went from 173 we'll say, to my present about 160.
Maybe, by eating carbs, I don't have to snacks as much to fill up, that's a guess. But for some reason I've gotten down to 160 for a few days, anyway. I do the exercise by walking my dog everyday, with exercise burning glucose which helps reduce diabetes.
Oats breakfast cereal also, I think reduces colestoral, by taking taking it off the blood vessills, I've read.
But to help my other health condition, I've tried to cut out wheat, cows milk and sugar (which I've already stopped) and those 3things are the ones everybody is allergic to, I've heard.
Instead of regular bread, I eat wheat-free bread, instead of cows milk, I drink goat's milk, both of which help my other health condition. But then trying to take out or reduce carbs, also, for diabetes, seems to conflict, like, I've taken out all or enough things to eat for variety.
For instance, on my no cows milk diet, I can't eat cottage cheese, for it has cow's milk in it. But cottage cheese is no carb, so I should eat that to help my diabetes. Gosh. There's no food to consume.
