My hubby and I are on a low carb diet right now, trying to get into summer time shape. One thing we both understand about low carb diets is that the weight may not be coming off as quickly as you’d like, especially if you have already done the low carb diet several times, [...]
When you’re on a low carb diet, there are actually quite a few options that you can eat that you may not have even thought of. My husband and I are currently doing the low carb thing in order to get back into fighting shape for the summer time, and while you usually do [...]
