Low Carb...Gonna Be Hard!

So I am going to be starting a low carb diet. Not Atkins or anything crazy like that, but I need to start a low carb to get my blood sugar down. This is going to be difficult for me, I looooovvveee my carbs!! haha I have been reading about The South Beach Diet, however my Dr. thinks first I need to just try to cut way back on things such as potatoes, pasta, bread, and that sort of thing and of course sugar, but I can keep my fruit, which makes me happy, cause I love fruit!

I also went to the eye dr. today, omgosh my eyes have gotten a lot worse, which surprised him a lot since I'm 22 and at my age he said they really shouldn't be changing so much :( At least I have new contacts and new glasses ordered :)  Some good news is that I go back to Louisiana in 2 weeks!! Ahhhh so close! I'm so excited to have my own house again!

As for the diet, I'm going to start keeping a daily food diary on here, pictures and in writing so I can keep accountable for my calories and carbs. Wish my luck, it's not going to be easy!!

  1. That was the thing that bothered me with South Beach, so little fruit! Of course, its only on phase 1 that you can't have any fruit, after that you can have certain fruits in measured amounts. But still, I don't blame you!
