    Tomatoes and Carrots are going to raise your insulin levels though. I'd cut back on those or cut them out completely to speed up fat loss. Just my .02.


    If you are eating foods that keep insulin levels stable, you should eat until you're full(won't be hard)and forget about calories.

    Tomatoes and carrots? Reeeeally? Are you sure? They're two of my favorite vegetables.

    Jess, I've noticed on Fitday and My Fitness Pal that tomatoes really boost up the carbs. Makes sense, as they're pretty much a fruit...too bad, since I have an garden bursting with them!

    Rusty of Fitness Black Book has prepared a free e-book for those who have a few pounds to lose.

    Its something you do once a year, 3-4 weeks before vacation to be in the best shape possible.

    Its not something you stay on. He helped two guys get to lower fat levels to see better definition and what he recommended for the them is in the e-book.

    Tomatoes and carrots raise insulin, this is ridiculous. I already gave up fruits, so what am I to eat now, grass?

    Raphael: Not everyone&#39;s metabolism is equally damaged! The tricky part is discovering your personal tolerance level for carbs, glycemic load, etc.

    Hey guys, just wanted to give an update.


    So... before, when I started this thread, I was concerned with calories, and eating less than 2,000 a day.


    Now that I&#39;ve started college, I don&#39;t keep track of them anymore, but I believe I&#39;m consuming over 3,000. I&#39;ve been eating a LOT more fats and proteins (a lot of nuts, cheese, and sausage.) I&#39;m also eating less than 50 grams of carbs per day.


    12 days ago, I weighted myself and got 142 lbs, as I posted earlier. Today, I was down to 141!


    Not a lot, sure, but it&#39;s something. But most important, I actually DIDN&#39;T gain any weight despite my high fat diet.


    So... my point is that it works, haha
