we don't know what the procedure was, but a doctor that tells a patient to eat white bread and noodles for months on end has a serious screw loose.
yes. yes. yes.

If you want to lose 8 pounds, you are already at a healthy weight so there isn't going to be a miracle plan for you. Your macros aren't going to make a hell of a lot of difference. The only thing that will matter is you eat fewer calories. Keep your protein high to maintain muscle and cut your calories from fat and carbohydrate in whatever portion is reasonable to you, always remembering that 'more' is not 'better.' i.e. zero carb or zero fat is not better.
i think the macros will matter when grains are making up a good portion of her carb sources. they could easily be causing water retention of a couple pounds, which is a lot when weight-loss goal is only 8 pounds.
am also thinking her body comp has shifted with an extended-duration diet of almost no protein and all krappy carbs.
As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.
