I agree that finding the right balance is key. I spent too long being extremist. Yeah, I find it funny how I eventually grew to eat nothing but meat after never wanting it for so long. I like it fine now, but I like veggies and fruit and tubers more. I don't eat fruit or tubers as of yet, but I'm considering it once my body gets used to eating veggies again. I want to see if this calorie restriction works before I try adding more carbs. I guess I'll just have to wait and see. I'm still going to be researching more about a higher carb approach, one that includes tubers, and see if that would actually instigate weight loss. Best of luck, one tall girl to another.
