Weight Loss, Glycemic Index Diet, Glycemic Load

I am on day 11. I haven’t been keeping up with the posts but it’s eating as per the other days more or less. I actually went out to eat a few times to break the boredom and stuck with the program. I went to lunch in a Mexican restaurant, Zivaz, and didn’t get the rice, the chips, or […]
