June 11, 2012 By Vanessa Romero 19 Comments I’ve been an ardent supporter of a low-carb lifestyle for the better part of the past decade. These days, however, my adherence to a low-carb lifestyle is less about how I look on the outside and more about the health of my insides. There has never been a study that has shown protein harms the kidneys in otherwise healthy persons. For the general population, studies have found that those following a low-carb plan have actually lost less muscle mass than their low-fat counterparts even without exercise. I’ve lived this low-carb lifestyle for a decade plus a few years and have no anticipation of living any other way.

I first tried the low carb diet several years ago with my daughter, and lost about 15 pounds the first month — but then life events happened, I went off the diet and never went back until last fall, when I learned that I am now a Type 2 diabetic.
While eating low carb is a struggle at times, especially when cooking for a family that CAN and WANTS to eat carbs, I no longer feel like I am being deprived of favorite foods. Also we use Splenda syrups — such as DaVinci and Tourani sugar free syrups, in coffee and in some of the treats.
I just wanted to post how happy I am that there is more support and information now for low carb dieters.
In February of 2011 I was at my top weight of 205 lbs, just 7 months after having my first baby. I know this is old and I mean no offense by what I’m about to say, but in your before picture you look 50+ years old and in your after you look no older than 20-25… you look amazing! Choose a variety of different fruits and vegetables to add to your snacks and meals throughout the day, eating a rainbow of colors for the most nutrients.

For example, you can eat an entire spaghetti squash for not many more calories than a medium plain potato - one that doesn't contain any butter, oil or sour cream.

Besides, a properly designed low-carb plan is not high protein but moderate protein which research has shown to improve satiety and support lean body mass.
Add more low-calorie fruits and vegetables to your diet to help you feel fuller and more satisfied, while staying under your calorie limit for the day.
While the fruit list is a bit shorter than the veggie list, I indulge guilt-free in fruits that are low in sugar but high in phytonutrients. I was able to eat to satiety, and didn”t have to force myself to drink more than to thirst.
