Hope this helps,
This sounds like a great idea. I've just started this today. I think I will try it this way for a while - I can hold out longer with one day of limited carbs than trying to do "none. forever..." :-) I quit smoking last summer and gained 30 lbs
and now - since Christmas I've lost 12 but - still need to lose another 25 - (I was a little over where I want to be when I quit smoking) - because I'm getting married July 10th and that's coming faster than you can imagine.
Hope to check in here often.
