    I don't think carbs are the enemy. She just has been saying she feels like crap and the amount of carbs with not much to balance it and the long times between meals seem to me a likely reason.

I think glucose meters can be a very good tool for anyone to use to help see how different foods effect their body if they are concerned about glycemic load...

    Edit: ive also been bad the last couple months though and put back on about 10-15 lbs in that time, and im craving junk again, thats one thing i loved was after a month or so of not eating any process fats and sugars, I stopped craving them entirely...
    Kale is so good for you!

    What juicer do you like?

    This does seem likely - though I would definitely not underestimate the effect of cutting out caffeine for someone who practically lives on coffee but is sensitive to chemicals/stimulants... I remember adjustment periods where my body felt horrible for both not giving it "enough" caffeine and for feeding it the proper amount of food (because when I cut back extremely on caffeine, I felt nauseous, had a headache, etc). A 44 oz diet coke and coffee throughout the day... that is a quite a bit of caffeine. :horor:

    My apologies for misunderstanding then, im just so used to people confusing healthy carbs and bad carbs as acting the same on the body.

    If money was no object, the Norwalk is an amazing juicer, but my favorite, both for the quality of its juice, its price, and its versatility, is the Omega 8004,it has the industries best and longest warranty, 15 years on everything , it gets the best results on the market with greens (other than the norwalk), its very excellent with carrots and other hard veggies (there are 2 other juicers that do a tiny bit better job, but tend to oxidize the juice more, and are more difficult to use and clean) and its still really good with fruit, but there are a few better than it at fruit, I prefer to eat fruit or make a smoothie with it rather than juice it anyway, Also, the omega 8004 can make delicious whole fruit sorbets using the blank screen (that by itself made is super easy to get off of processed sugars for me, fresh banana blueberry sorbet ready in 10 minutes? yes please! lol) I also like to make my own nut butters/ fruit spreads with it too... bread sticks as well, it handles the kneading!, I have not been able to give up my bread... so ive just been working on making healthier breads... it can also make noodles, and grind meat, and a bunch of other stuff, made baby food like stuff for my mom while she was undergoing chemo this last time, easier for her to eat, and digested more easily...

    Basically, its the best juicer for me... although some people with different needs may find an Omega VRT, or a really really fast one if they need it to be quick... (with my omega 8004 I can get it set up, juice a quart of juice, and get it cleaned up in about 15 minutes, some people need speed more than quality though, so they get a good centrifugal that juices really fast...(minutes) although cleanup takes a lot longer...) blah, sorry if this sounds like an ad for the juicer, I just really love my juicer, spent months researching, and finally settled on this one after watching all the comparison videos on youtube, and ive been so happy with it ever since... it runs around $250 right now with free shipping on amazon.

    Also Zoom, I totally agree with you, caffeine is bad stuff, processed sugars too... they have a horrible effect on ones body...

    ah, in the market? check all the youtube videos then, they may help you figure out which is best for you too, John Kohler from discountjuicers.com was really helpful too, actually most of the youtube videos are done by him, where he compares different juicers side by side... also, the omega 8006 is exactly the same as the 8004, but chromed and black so it doesnt end up staining, I think its around $30-$50 more though for something that just looks prettier...

    I am having a hard time writing this post, mostly because I am that good kind of tired, maybe a little lazy.

    So today I did pretty well, I ate everything I have been. I walked an hour at lunch and covered twice the area I normally do.

    After work I went to the gym, and swam. It was okay because turns out there is a water aerobics class at that time. The people were really nice, and encouraging. I think I would have liked a little more alone time though, to just swim.

    I thought about this. I love water. It is so weird how if you flex just one muscle in your body it can change the entire direction of your movement. One flex, and you're heading in a different direction.

    At the same time we were asked to do some exercises that I found would propel my body. Even when I didn't want it to move. So I started concentrating on the balance of my movements. I realized I favor my right upper body, and my left lower. So weird. Anyway I realized what an incredible act of balance it is to remain still while moving in water.

    I loled when the teacher said, you are all doing really good! Some of you look really serious. I smiled, she smiled back.

    It was fun. Swimming always makes me that good kind of whole body tired. So right now I am just chillen. I will try to do my sit ups later.

    Okay update,

    I didn't do any of my exercises today. I woke up, feeling very tired and sore all over.

    I ate probably a 1/4 of noodles, with 24oz of tomato sauce.

    Today was massive fail.

    Oh I also ate some beef tips.
