oh for me it was all about ‘dieting obsession’
I read do this, do that, fast and starve, then eat only this, don’t eat that food with this food, every single low carb person told me what to do ya know…but that is what suited them. It didn’t suit me one bit. I became a dieting monster of insanity and failure and I went bonkers tracking everything, measuring/weighing food and eating out became an absolute nightmare for me and my family. I allowed my dieting to just take control and not in a good way.
And it was carb addiction. I fought to keep the carbs any way I could. But in the end once my mind said ‘who are ya kidding here’ after all this insanity, I decided to accept the carb addiction and go on the attack. I always did best at 0 or 10g carbs tops so I walked into zero carb plan and never looked back.
What it gave me was control. Hunger satisfied. Nutrition for the body to heal. The plan was eat all ya want, when you want and boy did that suit me and boy did I need that in the beginning. Coming from all kinds of restrictions/kcal counting/carb tracking and all that crazy.
What my zc plan gave me was freedom from ‘dieting’. I don’t do nothing but eat zc and gave up everything. Dropped it all from tracking which is worthless to me and gave up being scared or guilty to eat my fill, I can eat out all the time and not ‘worry’ on carb counts and more LOL
I know I was in a mess with dieting. It tore me up for a few years. I tried everything. Every tweak and tip and trick that others would recommend and nothing worked cause also I didn’t like LC foods at all. I hate veg and was always a meat hound so my progression into zc was the exact plan to suit me and fix all my problems on finding healing and health.
I was one crazy dieter before and now, nope. Dropped it all and live a very good easy peasy lifestyle on a plan that suits me to a T. You know I just had to go thru all the crazy to find the best of the best for me I guess Tons of weight off my shoulders now since I am out of that ‘dieting mindset’…I tell ya I couldn’t take it LOL It drove me bonkers but now all is good for many years on this plan.
I think everyone just has to find their personal plan. Eat the foods you love and not force that and when you finally narrow down the foods/lifestyle and more that works with you, bam ya got it.
So I hope that is what you meant by what problems did my plan fix for me
