My gateway to low carbing was slow carbing -- Tim Ferris' 4 Hour Body. I did fairly well on that diet at first, but then became horribly sick of beans. My father also died around this time and dieting went out the window.

My lessons from that time were several fold. As nice as a weekly cheat day sounds, I can't do that. Black beans don't raise my blood glucose readings but cheat days do. I can't eat beans 3 or 4 meals a day. But now I eat beans 3 or 4 times a week. It may slow down my weight loss, but it gives me more latitude in my diet.
