I put on 20 pounds but lost 5 since doing low carb/sugar (at my Dr.'s request b/c the pred is giving me high blood sugar, i'm pre diabetic- yay me!). I am already doing low salt no more than 1500mg a day (though I have cheated and my neck and new double chin proves that).
I work out 3 to 5 days a week (as of this past month). I am always hungry, I had weight to lose before and now just have more weight to lose. All I do is think about food, I think I understand what a crack addict feels like, thats how I feel about food, food is my crack.......it has nothing to do w/being hungry, I just want to eat, eat, eat.
