A great post Robin! I have had so many problems on previous low carb diets that I checked with my Doc before I started and got a carb amount from him that I needed. Made sure I had something (fruit, sweet potatoes, or pumkin) at each meal, but quit even trying to count after the first couple of days. After that, I just kept doing what I was doing and didn't suffer the usual consequences. So, to everyone who is worried about eating too much or not enough, just go with the flow. It will work out. Day 24 is at an end and energy has picked up despite my having fibro and CFS.
