Hell, no! You're talking about a piece of homemade cornbread/honey/brown rice flour for God's sake. (Not that I would eat such a concoction but obviously you love this stuff. ) If you're not super overweight then forget about it and find an exercise routine you can enjoy. Life's too friggin' short.

It is the middle thing that has the crazy carb load. A cup of quinoa is more than 100 carbs, a cub of rice is 45 carbs. Quinoa somehow has a reputation that is much much better than the reality--it is a carb overload. Try replacing that with veggies or cheese or something else lower carb, and see what happens.

Living in FL, grapefruit and lemons are an easy get.
Ya mean I'm actually doing something right and didn't even realize it? Go me, LOL!
I drink over 120 oz of water a day - but always add TrueLemon
