Shocking disclaimer; I am not a doctor. I know many of you enjoyed my previous low carb, "what I ate" post, so I decided to write up another since I recently bumped up my carbs.

I recently hit a wall. Things had been going great low carb, remember? In the last two weeks, I found myself craving fruit; not even bread or cookies.Just fruit. Oh, not to mention lots of salsa and tortilla chips.I've also become in love with roasted brussel sprouts and those would take up a quarter of my … Continue reading Six Months Low Carb; Update.
It's been almost on month on my lower carb/ low glycemic index "diet." Eh, let's just say I really hate the word "diet." Okay, moving on.

I am not a fan of the term "diet," but diet is simply a way of eating. I had been feeling drained and had increased migraines after eating probably for about a couple of months. Initially, I thought it was just the heat. I was so glad to have my annual physical approaching. When I … Continue reading What I Eat On A Low GI “Diet”
Since early September, my eating and workout "routine" has changed. At first it was unintentional. Between stress building up and lacking the desire to workout, this caused some new habits to form that I ended up sticking through with.
