It's been almost a year since I started on this low-carb "journey." Initially I wanted to go back to a low GI "diet" as recommended by my doctor.

It's been almost on month on my lower carb/ low glycemic index "diet." Eh, let's just say I really hate the word "diet." Okay, moving on. As I mentioned in THIS post, I'm following a macro ratio of about 10% Carbs, 25% Protein and 65% Fat. I'm not being too strict and I'm NOT doing … Continue reading ALMOST One Month In: Low Carb/ Low GI.
