Thanks Mippy I really appreciate the Kudos!
I did Power Protein and lost a lot of weight, and maintained it for three years. Then my company switched insurances to a cheap HMO and since I was only borderline hypothyroid they took me OFF of the thyroid medicine I had been taking. A year later and 50 lbs heavier I began to realize that unless I did something drastic I was going to really blimp up.
So I got back on my lc diet, walked 3 miles daily and in six month lost a whopping 12 lbs...I was so discouraged. Finally learned about hormone balance did the testing and my nurse practitioner who helped me get back on track told me about the Warrior Diet and specifically recommended the Anti-Estrogenic version of the plan to me. I can not tell you how thrilled I was...though I came to the table very skeptical at first. I still believe low carb is a good diet for many people, especially those who have diabetes, but after many frustrating years I was burned out and needed a change.
I have come to realize that I just feel better eating healthy carbs and that combination eating really is better for me...it also helps my body absorb the natural thyroid I am back on...
Again thanks, and I am staying
