Now that you know how bad processed food makes you feel you can indulge in natural food which you love without any ill effects. Real foods don't have ingredients they are ingredients Smile

A bit frustrated
If carbs were just carbs then ppl who are insulin resistant wouldn't do as well as they do on a reduced carb lifestyle. It's scientific and it just works.

Before and After, anyone?
Hey Big Boy Optimus, the test is called a blood glucose level test. Can't remember the price but it is worth every cent and good to know. Your blood sugars could be elevated either because your body doesn't produce enough insulin or your body does not effectively use the insulin that it does produce. Insulin is a hormone necessary to carry glucose from the bloodstream into the cells where it is used for energy. If there is too little insulin, or resistance to insulin, blood glucose levels continue to rise, as glucose is not removed from the bloodstream and if it continues can lead to diabetes and heart disease. Diabetes is an 'epidemic' with 400 million sufferers worldwide. A waist larger than 100cm for men and larger than 88cm for women is a major risk factor for insulin resistance. There is an online quiz which could give you more insight.

Before and After, anyone?
Different things work for different people Smile After a blood test confirmed that I was carb sensitive, it was recommended that in order for me to lose the weight I needed to reduce my carbohydrate intake. Once I started eating correctly the inflammation started leaving my body fairly rapidly. The huge improvement in health and well being was enough of a bonus and the weight loss just the cherry on top. LCHF is my chosen lifestyle and it's for keeps. Good luck to those on their journeys to better health!

Very Happy Wink

Tired of dieting and not seeing any changes
If you are insulin resistant you might need to come in lower with the carbs (in addition to reducing the cals) The closer low carbers get to goal it's not just about the carbs its about calorie intake too. There might be some that disagree with me but that is my opinion. Have you tried a bit of intermittent fasting. It could just give you the jumpstart that you need. There are so many variations...5:2...16:8...the every other day diet (alternate days of fasting and feasting) It's just a matter of finding the right fit. Going back to eating carbs will just result in a lot of inflammation and weight gain. Don't give up.
