I have good luck by going low- or no-carb. It really works, just stick to eggs, meat and green beans! And cheese and salad with ranch if it doesn't give you problems. In other words, the Atkins diet.
Good luck! I'm hoping to shed 10 pounds by Christmas, now that I've had my mashed potato and gravy fix!
