I’ve tried a lot of wacky things during my journey to health. I have to say, out of all of them, the craziest was my brush with the low-carb thang. Low carb (or almost no-carb, rather) was a pretty trendy notion when I first started to lose weight, so I thought I would give it a whirl. At the time, I didn’t know that eliminating macronutrients from my diet was a bad idea– all I heard were the “fast results” on television and infomercials and was surrounded with low-carb packaging while shopping for food. I didn’t last long on the low-carb train because I was so miserable.
I’ve always been very active and trying to restrict the amount of carbs in my life was bad juju. I was SO tired during dance class and would have done anything for a bagel. Also bad juju? The stanky snacks I would eat. For the few days I tried to live low-carb, my favorite snack was a can of tuna with hot sauce squirted on top. To this very day, I feel differently about canned tuna… I want nothing to do with it. I’m happy to say that I achieved a healthy weight eating carbs and am still a carb lover to this day. 🙂

Note: I was paid to write about Crystal Light Pure Fitness (You can read my other post *here*). I wasn’t paid to state a particular opinion and as you guys know, I would NEVER pimp out anything on the blog that I wouldn’t use myself for the sake of making extra dollas. I love you guys too much 🙂 So yes, I was paid to review this product, and yes, if the product sucks I would happily say so. In this case, it doesn’t suck, it’s actually very tasty.
