My advise: First step, Abstain from sugar; Table, Fruit, Processed Foods, Sweet Drinks

Is this something you think you and your daughter can do?

You have come to the right place. Lots of information on this board. ..browse through and learn. There are different low carb programs and folks are in various stages of losing and maintenance. I recommend Atkins and Dr. Westman's books for a good guide, but basically avoid carbs in all forms - no sugar, no bread, no pasta, no rice........avoid white foods like the plague.

Eat meats, fish, cheese, eggs, vegetables and soups made with same.

We have lots of recipes on this site and many others you can find online. Its really easy, you just have to shift your thinking.

Easy Examples are:

bacon and eggs for breakfast (or omelet with veggies and cheese)
cobb salad for lunch (with egg, avocado, cheese)
Steak , asparagus and salad for dinner


Good Luck! Keep posting.

Welcome to the forum, Collins6.

One of the key aspects of my own journey that comes to mind when I was starting out was sustainability. By that, I mean that whatever I wanted to do, it needed to be something that I felt I could do not just today, but again tomorrow. Maybe if you tell us a bit about your background and your living circumstances, the sorts of things you like and don't like and why, that might help inspire some new ideas that you can feel confident about carrying forward.

In any case, make yourself at home, and feel free to look around. There's no shortage of history, advice and friendships formed in between.

Good luck!
