i will not buy anything that says low carb on it. i flat out refuse.
why dont people just watch their sugar and calorie intake??
dh and i were at target yesterday and i saw... low-carb cheetos. if you are trying to lose weight, why are you eating cheetos?
i can't stand seeing or hearing the word 'carb', either. it's carbohydrate!
it's healthy to watch your 'carb' intake.
So drink SODA
with half the Added Sugar replaced with an Artifical Sweetner
(and of course this is for the people who can't stand the diet soda taste...)
it's the healthy choice!
yeah, I'm pretty sick of it
low carb ice cream
low carb peanut butter
low carb bread
Every time I shop for groceries somewhere other than our co-op, I hear at least 4 or 5 store-wide announcements about some low-carb option that is newly available. There are bright blue signs all over the produce department as well, announcing which veggies are 'carb-smart.' Now I can't even buy a head of cabbage without being attacked with the carb nonsense. Stop the insanity!
I actually thought about trying the C2 because I am Coke-addicted but get an insulin response to diet drinks with aspartame as badly as with sugar drinks. I've cut way back on the sodas but still like an occasional Coke, but I don't like the blood sugar/insulin effect I get with them.
You are singing my song!!!!!!!! I am so sick of the whole low carb, no carb thing. I was in the store yesterday and say a mayo display and on the label it said still 0 carbs. I came home and checked on a jar of mayo in my fridge just to make sure they didn't change it!!!!! LOLOLOLOL

Then i decided to lower my carb intake, in an effort to loose my middle.....and it does work, but i am realizing that it just cant be good to lower your carbs so severely. I mean, balanced is the way to go, and i am slowly introducing more carbs into my diet again.
I think moderation is the key. I mean, if i am gonna eat a 18oz porterhouse steak, how can just eating spinach be "OK"? so to make myself feel better i had a loaded baked potato and a strawberry margarita.....
I love pasta and bread, and I also eat sugar. I don't see anything wrong with trying to eat less sugar, but when I do decide to cut down I don't fill in the blanks with diet sodas or crap like that; I go for more REAL FOOD!
I also wonder whatever happened to regular exercise and portion control, but I guess we are all looking for a "faster" way to get what we want.
I'm just sick of my DH spending sooooo much money on this crap.
I spend my days : : and seeing how many smilies I can fit in my siggy.
I don't mean to diminish the struggle that some people have with weight, but please. It's calories in vs. calories out. There is no magic formula - never has been, never will be.
Of course you lose weight when you cut out all carbs - cut out any major food group and you'll lose weight. And then you'll gain it all back when you add it back into your diet, just like my SIL keeps doing. It makes me crazy I tell you!
One of dh's best friends is on the a low carb diet. We spent the weekend with him - he ate steak, cheese, fried foods, and more meat. He even fried up the previous night's steak for breakfast, topped with cheese! But he wouldn't eat the salad because the salad dressing had some carbs in it.

Remember a while back there was a Jack-In-The-Box commercial, asking people what they wanted in a burger (a room full of men) and they said "meat and cheese" and something about not needing a bun...well, it is reality now.
Every time we go to the store, we throw high-carbohydrate foods into the cart with a happy "uh oh - CARBS!" spoken incredulously like a radio commercial we heard a while back. We're balanced-diet kind of people and won't be going on any of these diets any time soon.

What about a fad where you ate small portions and then went for a walk!
I love my carbs... pasta, bread, fruits and veggies...yum!
ETA: My dh wanted to try this and I said fine but he would have to cook for himself ( I don't cook hamburger, bacon, etc). It lasted like a week and he said he felt terrible the whole time
Oh, and the constipation that comes from only eating protein sources, that should make America a kinder, gentler nation...Happy Ketosis!
My only reaction to yet another stupid fad diet is that the stupid die young. People who follow this fad to the extreme will take years off their lives by not eating the foods that bring health & vitality. We as a country should be growing more fruits & veg to feed the world, not raising excess numbers of livestock that the land can't support.
I have to laugh when my boss goes out to Burger King or Subway to spend a few dollars a day on their "low carb" offerings, while I sit there feasting on home grown salad and leftover spinach lasagna that didn't cost me anything extra. He thinks he's the one eating healthy.
