No single diet is the cure for every personPosted by VickiJ on 11/16/99 at 00:00 (012777)
I agree, it is overwhelming...and I know some people NEED the extreme diet to get their bodies back to a healthy place. But I personally do not enjoy life on such a restrictive diet. IN GENERAL most westerners over do carb intake, but I feel better just by cutting back on the REFINED carbohydrates and eating more leafy greens and whole grains ALONG WITH 'reasonable' amounts of the stuff I love. I like to live by the idea of 'Variety, variety, variety and moderation in all things'. Luckily, my body seems happiest when I do...incidently, I developed PF right after being on a low carb diet for a few months!
