Hi there! I have recently started on a pretty low carb diet, because this is how I need to eat to feel well. I really am addicted to carbs and have a family history of diabetes. I am not overweight, but I want to lose ten pounds. I just feel better when I don't eat grains, when eat a higher protein diet, mostly a Traditional Foods diet. I have more energy, no bloating, it is a huge difference in how I feel. I also have some cavities that I am trying to heal, and so that factors into eating this way too. Anyway, I started out on a sort of Atkins-ish diet to start just to break my sugar addiction. And it really works. But the problem is that I lost several pounds kiind of quickly, of course, and I am losing it in my breasts!! Not even in my stomach really, which is where I usually lose it when I first go back to this kind of diet.
What can I do?? I want it to stop! Aacck, LOL! They are shrinking even more! After nursing for umpteen years they are already pretty ragged! Can anybody help them before they shrivel away??
One drawback is that I am allergic to dairy! So I can't do cheese, yogurt, etc.
