I n September I watched knives over forks a movie that promoted a vegan lifestyle. I was scared already because my blood work was terrible and I was overweight. So i cut out animal products and also bread and sugar. i lost weight as I tried this for about 10 days but felt dizzy and weak. I did a search and found web pages that debunked the movie so I added meat. I found myself on what seemed to be a Atkins's diet, one that I did not ever keep to when I tried it in the past. I continued to loose weight. In my searches I ended up buying the Primal blue print, both the book and audio. I have studied it. I like the teaching about exercise. I swam as a teenager and in collage. I never liked that fact that I would swim miles for training at hard effort when I competed in the 50 free 100 free and 100 and 200 backstroke. I am now planing to swim masters. i am 55 and pretty fast but still over weight. I stared at 234 and now about 208. Want to get to 178. Now here is my problem. Since I started my diet my carbs were lower than what Mark teaches. Now when i eat more than 40g carbs a day I get uncontrollable carb cravings. Then I eat something stupid. Last week I ate a half carton of ice cream at night. The week before it was something else. I bought some low carb bars in case I would get up at night in a fit of hunger. I don't want to mention the brand because that might be against the rules. I ate 3 of them last night in the middle of the night. This always happens after I eat more carbs during the day. Mark teaches that if you want to loose weight you should eat 50 to 100g of carbs. I seem to have problems when I go up from 30 or so. I would be thankful for any help Bob
