I don't like admitting this because it makes me sound dumb and feeble but about 6 months ago my doc got on my case about gaining 5-7 pounds of weight so I thought... "Hey, I will go low carb again!"
Well... I went shopping and tried to go back to my old ways. 3 days in I woke up, walked into the kitchen, my blood sugar dropped, felt like I was going to puke, hit the floor started sweating and ended up with my husband taking the day off work to take me to the ER. My doctor said... "No Atkins for you! South Beach diet much better!"
Low carb diets can be dangerous for some people. If you are going low carb, make sure you know what you are doing. Do your research and don't break the rules. Try to remember the amount of carbs your organs need to function properly actually have to do with your size. An SUV gets 8 miles to the gallon. A Ford Focus gets 30... your body is kind of the same.
