Low Carbs

While it felt good to give up carbs and it gave me a good jump start into exercising regularly and eating right, I have welcomed carbs back into my life.

It felt good to go a full 3 days without any carbs. I felt cleansed, energized, and by the 3rd night just downright hungry.

I never intended to go without carbs forever. I didn't really know what to expect, or how long I could go.

When your stomach is growling at 11 p.m. and carrots just don't settle the growling something's gotta give.

So, now I am just trying to limit my portions and still keep sugars, carbs, processed foods, etc. to a minimum.

Oh, and keep exercising of course.

I do know that I am an emotional eater. Someone let me borrow the book Love to Eat, Hate to Eat. I am looking forward to reading that. A friend had recommended that book a while back so I am glad to have a copy to read now.

Good times! Food. What a blessing and a curse. I am thankful though that we don't just have manna to survive on each day. I do wonder though what kind of creative recipes the Israelites were able to come up with though.
