RE: Recipe source

I jumped on the low-carb bandwagon a few years back. Lost quite a bit of
weight too. I was surprised at what I thought I couldn't give up and turned
out not to miss at all - like potatoes and rice. I still strictly limit my
carb intake although it has gotten boring; maybe I'll check out the South
Beach thing too.

Thanks Bonnie! That sounds good, and something that I'll be able to eat
eventually. Right now I'm only eating protein and leafy greens (a few
mushrooms in there too) in order to get myself used to less carbs. I do
really feel better already, although a bit weird since it's so unlike my
normal diet of lots of rice and potatoes.
