Recently an LJ friend started in on a diet of her own, with the concentration on carbohydrate monitoring. While her reasons were different then mine, we both share that insulin factor. [Worldwide about one in four people do.] Her results were immediate and quite favorable.
I've started watching mine. The hardest part is just to pay attention. Last night I took the next step, stopped at my local Barnes and Noble on the way home, and dented my wallet to the tune of about $40. I understand the concept, but have only begun to glean the details.
There's a lifetime of bad habits to correct.
My cafeteria at work and my pantry at home are not going to make it easy.
...but, I am going to do it.
Not try, do it.
