My first post. In July we will celebrate our 10th Anniversary, in August I will turn 60, and in September I will celebrate 7 years cancer free and I want to live, truly live. My husband bought me a Honda Rebel for my birthday last year, and I have yet to get on it. I want to ride it, I want to walk without pain, I want to laugh until my stomach hurts and not fear I will die from lack of air. I started this journey at 236 pounds, and I am down to 210. But I am stalled, I need encouragement.

I have pretty much given up bread, pasta, potatoes, and rice (this one was the hardest). I could live on salads, but sadly my husband can not. He is my own private cheering club, and has lost 20 pounds during my journey.

Hi Bonnie,
And welcome to the new you...I am new here as well.
I have read a few articles regarding cancer and how it feeds on sugars, be it carbs, or otherwise.
I have recently dropped almost 20 pounds now, I didn’t actually “clock” my weight when I started on the LCHF thing that is called Ketogenics / The Paleo / the cave man “diet”
I also started watching a very interesting documentary called “That Sugar Film”
All I can add is that cancer likes carbs/sugar/calories
Sugar causes insulin to tell the body to stop burning fat.
Carbs are the real boogers, not calories
There is more money to be made in Treating, rather than curing....
Carbs can hide in foods, fruits, sauces and other foods deemed “healthy” that is why I started using the foods tool, here on fat secret.
This is my newly discovered truth, it works for me, maybe not other folks.
Give it a try, what do you have to lose?

You should stick to science instead of misleading films. It's readily available. https://hoffday.wordpress.com/2013/07/21/several-metabolic-ward-studies-have-shown-that-there-is-no-difference-in-weight-loss-when-protein-intake-was-held-constant/

That link contains over 30 metabolic ward studies proving that fat loss is totally dependant on calorie intake. Also shows that when calories and protein are the same fat loss was the same whether the rest of your calories came from fat or carbs.

Quit basing your nutrition knowledge on a hypothesis and start using actual science.
Consume whatever foods you prefer, whenever you prefer to consume them, while ensuring nutrient sufficiency and meeting caloric goals.
