Okay, so I'm really curious to know if anybody is currently on the weightloss wagon or just trying to generally be healthier like I am?

I'm off and on but this time I'm REALLY trying to improve my health. I'm learning to be more "crunchy" in my ways of things. Trying to eat more organic(which is hard around here because we don't have organic stores) and just generally eating better. I've been trying to drink more smoothies for a while now which is great at getting me more fruits in. And most excitedly I JUST ordered a juicer from amazon. I can not WAIT to start putting SO many vitamins in my body without popping pills. It's like this is my new obsession and what a crazy good one to have.

Am I all alone? Anybody else obsessing about this? Hehehe


OH! As I research I'll probably start posting in Healthy Cysters again so be sure to keep an eye up on that subforum!

I am, but not going crazy. I mostly just try to cut carbs when I can. I LOVE carbs so this has been a struggle for me. I think I'm the only one who can literally eat bread for dinner and be happy about it. So cutting down on those is my main focus. I can't go as low carb as I probably need though since we just can't afford it.

Speaking of low carb, I'm trying spaghetti squash tonight as a substitute for pasta. Have you ever tried it?

I have actually! Its good in its own way, but doesn't cut it as a substitute for me. There's a much bigger difference between spaghetti and spaghetti squash than there is between rice and cauliflower rice for example.

I'm always off and on the low-carb thing. I am actually supposed to avoid carbs most of the time, due to another condition that I have that does not allow me to properly digest them... gastroenterologist's orders.

I have been back on the low-carb kick now for a week and have lost 12lbs, yay! All I can say, however, is thank goodness that I love to cook and experiment in the kitchen... if I hated cooking or was not good at it, I'm sure I would not be able to do this. Cooking, its science for hungry people.

I have come up with low carb alternative recipes to just about ANYTHING... except for pasta... so I need to try this spaghetti squash thing. hahaha.
