In 2010 I lost 20 pounds by low-carbing and tracking my intake. I hadn’t recorded my meals since August 2010 and finally in January 2012, after a 6.5 pound weight increase following a cruise, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s, I started looking at carb creep. I’ve recorded every spoonful for the last week, and voila, I’m down six pounds. That has been enlightening. Staying on track is easier when I record what I consume.
I’m a left-brained gal and love to keep spread sheets for about everything I do, including my budget, the mystifying Comcast bill, my lipid panel, and my diet. In looking back this morning I discovered something quite interesting. Take a look at the table below.
Type of Diet
(this last week)
I don’t need convincing that dropping carbs works. By watching my carb intake, the weight has stayed off for almost 21 months.
