My Acne does not go away.
I started the Forks Over Knives plan about a month ago. Almost all my body acne is gone now. Wasn't a goal, but I'm not upset about the side effect either. Might be worth a look.

Since signing up yesterday
Go to your "My Fatsecret" page. There will be a box near the center top of the page that says how many calories you've entered for that day. Click it & then scroll to the bottom. Bottom left, it will show you your percent RDI. Click that & you can see all your calorie info & recalculate if necessary. Also, as you drop weight over time, your RDI number will automatically decrease in order to maintain weight loss.

I've been fighting with weight loss for the past several years. About 4 months ago, I started trying again in earnest. I'm eating better & controlling portions, but no results. A month ago, I collapsed at work & was taken to the hospital. Turns out, I had a heart attack. The info on diet I got from the hospital was similar enough to what I'm already doing to not matter. Here I am a month later, now going to cardiac rehab, & still no weight loss. I'm going to call my GP on Monday to get a referral to a specialist. This has been an extremely frustrating few months. Just had to vent. Words of encouragement will be appreciated. Smile

Ice cream!
Since I'm doing this low carb, high fat thing, I decided to have some fun with it, so I bought an ice cream maker. I made my first batch tonight & it came out really good. I used a basic chocolate ice cream recipe & substituted the sugar with stevia. It came out fantastic. Just thought I'd share. Smile

Starting Paleo on Tuesday
I just learned about paleo, myself. I've added some aspects of paleo into what I'm doing, although I'm not in any way following any one program. What I took from paleo is that by cutting out all processed food, the person is likely going to be eating low carb. I was already eating mainly whole foods, so this was just another step in that direction for me. I'm getting phenomenal results, although I'm just over a week in. 12 pounds in 8 days. Hopefully I can keep the trend going. Good luck to you.
