Legumes beans etc

I no longer eat the beans on a regular basis. It is pretty common that most people lose the weight faster without them, or at least limiting the amount. The reason why Slow Carb is so effective ...

I currently weight 127 lbs and am 5'3 I would like to lose about 10lbs. Has anyone had a similar goal of only about 10lbs. How fast did it come off.

Try the Last Mile section of the book. You should see results rather quickly if your body is used to eating Carbs.

Avoiding ketosis
