Woo Hoo...Listen to This!...back to calorie cycling...
Gosh I feel schizophrenic, but I'll post this anyway.
I have gone from Weight Watchers to calorie cycling to low carb and back again in an amazingly short period of time! What a crazy dieting year this has been for me.
I was originally on WW for several months- HATED IT - then switched to calorie cycling which had worked in the past, had an appointment with my doc who diagnosed prediabetes and wanted me lowcarbing; told me not to worry about calories. Not really happy as low carb WITHOUT calorie counting NEVER worked for me. I wasted money on a few low carb books to further educate myself...went to another doctor for my blood sugar issues, as I wasn't too happy with the first one for a few reasons.
Listen to this! My current doctor said there is no reason for me to follow low carb if I don't want to! She said just losing weight, whether it be low calorie, low carb, Weight Watchers, etc. often normalizes your blood sugar, unless you're eating a lot of junk! SHE HERSELF CALORIE CYCLES! I thought I'd almost faint when I heard this. Is that providence or what? AND she approved of me taking glucomannan whereas the last doctor told me to just keep taking my psyllium. In fact my current doctor was enthusiastic about the gluco! I told her I am taking her home with me.
So, to make this long story short...I am back. And I ain't leaving. I am doing what always worked for me in the past - lowering calories. I'll be cyclying - not going as low as you JUDDDERS, but I still want to be part of this group. Waving at everyone! Glad to be home.
