I say there are carbs in everything! lol I had a bite of hubby's pasta the other night and it tasted like wall paper paste- make you feel better? I've gone with Amanda Benham via email- filled out all the paperwork/questionnaires now I'm just waiting for her feedback and menu! fingers crossed I like it and can stick to it... although I wouldn't hold your breath on the carbs, cause I mentioned they don't really agree with me... maybe she'll make me eat lots of quinoa and brown rice?... they don't seem to be as bad... But in preparation I've upped my calories and managed to get to a more 'normal' intake (1300cal) and frustratingly put on 4kg in the last week... which would be impressive if it was muscle but since I've been sick and only doing pilates and yoga there's no chance of that! Fingers crossed its water...
1300 cal at your bodyweight is extremely low. The basal metabolic rate for a 70 kg woman should be roughly about 1500 calories. Add in 2 hours of cardio a day and you are basically turning your body into a fat storing/muscle depleting machine by being in an extremely negative calorie balance. Being sick and lack of sleep wouldn't be helping either.
I think Amanda (username Epona) posts on the QLD vegetarian & vegan society forum if you want to get an idea of her dietician style
Have you ever been tested for gluten intolerance? That could be an issue if quinoa and brown rice don't seem to give you problems and other carbs do.
