Katie, I really believe you can eat healthy portions as LONG AS YOU EXERCISE. But when you want to loose weight, you have to cut the calories and increase your cardio. Once you get to where you want to be in weight, I belive you can eat anything if you incorporate a healthy dose of exercise.
With that said, I am a Recoverying Carboholic and I swear I'm taking it a day at a time. When I was in the throws of carbo addiction, I was taking it a meal at a time and even sometimes an hour at a time.
Good luck! Regina
