I spent a year traveling eating "Low Carb" prepackaged foods as I blew up to 50 pounds over my ideal weight. I spent another year at home eating the same stuff by less of it and no weight loss. I couldn't figure out why I could not lose weight, figured I was just too old and I got fat like the rest of my family. I was miserable and not enjoying life because the food I was eating was not making me happy. Then I figured I would just eat a bunch of carbs and die young but happy.. suicide by carbs. So I bought a sack of potatoes and dug out my old Deep Fryer I had not used in a long time and ate 10 pounds of potatoes in one sitting., I was so happy and did not care how much weight I gained I was eating french fries for the rest of my perceived short life. I kept doing this but I was not salting them I was using spices like Turmeric and Cumin and Garlic powder. I loved it, its all I ate with a few exceptions. I ate them by the pound for about 3 months when I noticed my belt holes were moving in the skinny direction, I even had to buy a new belt so I thought I should weight myself. I had lost 30 pounds, 10 pounds a month, in 6 months I was back to my normal weight. I lost weight eating French Fries? eventually I figured out what it was. Prepackaged foods are loaded with preservatives that do not react well with my body. Now French Fries are probably not the answer but not eating Prepackaged foods or fast food seems to be the key for my weight loss. I believe if you keep natural foods in your diet and only natural foods your body will stop processing carbs and let them pass when it feels it has had enough. Thats my guess. Eat closer to the farm and further from the factory.
