Start, Goal and 20g of Carbs

I started on LCHF on Tuesday 28 June 2011.  So far I feel really good and I've lost more weight than I did on that normal diet I did for a month.  I'll post the results at the 1 week mark, which is just a couple of days away.  My goal is to lose 40 lbs (18.18kg), any extra weight I lose will be an extra bonus.   

There are many people who follow LCHF as a lifestyle and not just as a diet plan to lose weight.  As someone who is trying to lose weight on LCHF, I've been following the max 20g of carbs a day, with only a max 5g (5%) of carbs out of 100g foods.  So instead of counting calories, I look for the carb amount on foods I buy now.  Not everything low carb is friendly to the diet, so checking out the nutrition info has become very important to me this past week.

Planning meals has become a completely different ball game.  Now I need to rethink or redo recipes to make it LFCH friendly.  I wonder how I'm going to be able to eat Asian foods since most of them are rice and noodle based, and marinated with sugar or contain sauces with sugar.  At least Kikkoman Soy Sauce is 0g of carbs.
