Default New eating plan

Hi all -- I've just begun (in the last week) increasing my protein and reducing my carbs. It's something my NP suggested as way to lose weight but also to feel more energetic. I've dealt with some injuries lately but usually exercise 7 days/week....I lift weights about 5 days/week, cardio the other two.

I'm wondering if any of you follow that as an eating lifestyle and how it has worked for you? I think it's very similar to the Zone diet though I haven't researched that much.
Thanks, Beth

I've had people tell me that what I'm doing is similar to South Beach, or the Zone, and others say it's Weight Watchers. I have no idea about all that, mostly I count calories on fitday and make sure at least 25% of my calories come from protein. I limit my grain based carbs, but not my veggies (which are also carbs). I also work out 5-6 days/week, but I usually go for 75 minutes, so it works out to 6-7 hours/week total, and that helps me to average a calorie deficit of about 3,500 calories/week. It works well enough as long as I don't cheat.

Well -- from the looks of your stats, it's working for you! Congrats and thanks for your thoughts. I don't exercise nearly that long....only 45-60 minutes.
