Hey funny seeing someone losing at the same time as me
I'm also losing weight, I have about 30lbs extra and I started 2 weeks ago as well. While I'm not completely cutting carbs off the table I'm trying to limit my intake because well usually there's a decent amount of calories in carbs in general.
I cut off my snacking habit and reduced my portions to what I'm supposed to eat and I'm feeling pretty good.
Lost 3lbs the first week and 4lbs the second week.
I attribute my increased weight loss in the second week to stronger 30 minute of exercise ( we have a threadmill at home ). Since I don't walk a lot, I found out that jogging was pretty hurtful for my underutilized muscles at the leg but mostly at the ankle area and I could not run as much as I gauge my cardio to be capable to handle. Now that my muscles are actually muscles I can actually do some decent cardio.
Speaking of portions, my mother has the whole shebang of weight watchers and it really was an eye opening especially when it comes to ingredients added. Like what's an actual portion of peanut butter on toasts and the likes, no wonder I kept gaining weight all these years.
Back to your diet, cutting carbs definitely has multiple benefits. Especially for those who might have a semblance of gluten intolerance, which are in wheat which i gather is the most common carbohydrate that people consume in general.
One thing, are you making sure you're having enough fiber in your diet? That's one thing to plan for when going low carb or in your instance carb-free.This post was edited by Helloween7 on Jan 23 2017 08:13pm
