I just read Dr. Bernstein's Diet book and I am shocked by the difference between what he recommends vs. the ADA diet. I am not sure that I can do this. How many eggs can a person eat before they grow sick of them? That is my biggest worry: that the allowed foods are so limited that I will get burned out on them. One slice of tomato in your salad? What happens to the rest of the tomato--sits in the refrig and rots?
I WANT this to work and stabilize my blood sugar. I just have doubts. The recipes given are for multiple servings. Heck, if I could keep myself from eating multiple servings then I wouldn't be this weight, would I? What about recipes for one? Has anyone had good luck with reducing recipes?
I am scared silly about tossing all the grains and starches in my house and starting over, going against ADA guidelines for diet.
Could I please hear from anyone who has low carbed this much, stuck with it and been successful?
