    Slow Carb Diet Fail 

    I believe I’ve given it a fair shot. After being on the slow carb diet for 7 of the last 8 weeks, I haven’t seen enough change to hold my attention. It’s a bit disappointing, for sure, but not the end of the world by any stretch.

    Oh well. It’s certainly been fun. Binge days have been an interesting high and low, but I think I’m going to focus on other things for a while.

    UPDATE: Just for comparison, here’s the progress I made on Medifast in 2008. I wonder if slow carb would have been more effective had I more weight to lose, or if Medifast would be effective on me again now.

    Update: If you are interested in trying the Slow Carb Diet, despite my failure, I encourage you, and please let me know. If you need recipe ideas, check out http://slowcarbcook.blogspot.com.

    Slow Carb Diet: Week 4 

    I just read that people over 40 often fail to see any significant change in the slow carb diet for the first 4-6 weeks. I’m not over 40, but I figure I’ll give it a few more weeks regardless to give it a fair shot. It’s disappointing that the changes I’m experiencing haven’t been more dynamic, but I am feeling more energy, even if my scale refuses to acknowledge the diet except the day after binge day (when I see a rather noticeable spike in my weight).
