Thanks KimE. I think she just misunderstands the whole carbs thing. It's how we were taught when younger and it's stuck I guess. She NEVER believes me until she hears it from someone else - LOL! Jst like the time when . . . anyway! :D

The only time I feel tired is when I don't get enough sleep. Otherwise I often feel like running/skipping/jumping down the halls at work when I used to just moan about moving!

As I said (I think), when I get down to my target weight (or close enough), I plan to introduce more pasta & rice & stuff into my diet (and hopefully maintain some level of exercise).

What are "blood sugar spikes"? Is that when you feel down then up because you eat more sugar?

Yeah you get a boost of energy followed by a low. I think that's what all the low GI guff is all about. I'm not sure if fruit would do that to you though, I think it's more attributed to lots of cane sugar, chocolate, lollies and the like. I think there is actually an eating plan that centres only on fruit, I vaguely remember Dolly mentioning it.

But anyway as I said if it meets your needs and you feel healthy then why not keep it up and you are still getting veges in the day too. You should certainly have enough energy. Oh and well done on your weightloss a fantastic effort you have obviously found what works for you.
