    negative carbs?

    I have been on induction level for the atkins diet for two months and after the initial loss have been hovering between 218 pounds to 214 pounds.
    I've tried refeeding twice, and now have tried something else.
    I'm looking into "good carbs" and using low gylcemic load and glycemic index carbs more liberally.
    So I decided to try Chia.
    Chia has 6 carbs per tablespoon, but it also lowers your blood sugar and slows your body's metabolism of carbs into glucose...
    I have been taking a chance and I had 24 grams of carbs from chia yesterday (four past induction just from the chia!)
    I've only done this for about three days and I am now weighing in at my lowest ever! 208!
    It is been years since I have been this fit!
    I think it pretty much lowers the glycemic load of any other carb you eat-- it is like adding negative carbs!

    So Cal
    I have another friend doing LC and she has chia tea every day. I will have to get her recipe.
    I am Arlene and Dr Mary Vernon says it best for me. I used to stand under my plum tree waiting for the fruit to ripen and fall, now I stand near a coconut tree.
