52 Signs You’re a Low Carber

I’ve been on a low carb diet for two years now. I ran across a pretty fantastic post by Sohee Lee and I decided to blatantly rip her off to make the first post of my newly redesigned blog a memorable one. So without further ado, I present the 52 signs you’re a low carber.

All images shameless ripped from /r/reactiongifs! Captions are my own.

    LOL I loved Sohee’s one too. This was awesome!

  • Bob Loblaw

    Most amusing. Two things, though. It’s “without further ado.” Not adieu. “Ado” is trouble or fuss, “adieu” is a French word meaning roughly “go with God.” In #21, the word is “vicinity,” rather than “vacinity.”

    All in all, I enjoyed this. More than one chuckle was had. Still, feel free to delete this post once you correct the typos. Cheers.

      Fixed :) Thanks for pointing it out. I hate typos and spelling errors.

    I sent this to my husband because I kept sending him individual links to the images I really liked and then I was like “f-it too many good ones – here is the blog!”

    OMG. Best post ever!! <3

  • JanObe

    Vainglory, so when I read the gif about “gained 15 lbs of water weight for cheating”, I was like…wuuut? How is that possible? However, I went on vacation and cheated everyday and gained 10lbs in 10 days… O.M.G… is it mostly water weight? If so, how do I get rid of water weight? Do I simply need to get back my normal routine of eating Paleo and weights/running? Is that enough or do I need to do something else?
