    So, I've never been one to go around reading diet books, especially since there are so many. I've read "The Abs Diet" which I liked and have followed fairly well, and maintained my weight however it hasn't done much for slimming me down, which is because I eat too much or do too little.
    At any rate, back in december I had posted that I wanted to lose 10 lbs in six weeks, well that didn't happen, but I have nearly lost the ten. I'd like to really kick it up and I hear low carb is extraordinarily effective.
    Is it possible to go low carb long term and be healthy? They're a great source of energy, so If I didn't consume them would I lack the energy to participate in the active lifestyle I currently lead?

    Certainly no expert here... Never tried a low-carb diet, but I believe that one of the pitfalls of going carbless is the cravings will get you. Your body knows what it needs, and a balnced diet satisfies your body's needs. If you eliminate carbs, your bod will be like, 'Hey!'... then you'll smell warm bread, or cookies, or something totally irresistable, and end up bingeing on something. I love bread, beer, pop-tarts, potatoes, PASTA!!, Triscuits (only without Rachel Ray on the box) too much to eliminate carbs... I know I'd binge eventually.
