Hey Michiganders,

It's great to see a mix of Yoopers and Trolls on here. I'm currently in my last semester of school in Ann Arbor but my family lives in Sterling Heights. I grew up in Troy and Utica (Shelby Twp.) and our family had a restaurant in downtown Birmingham so I spent a lot of my childhood there too.

Hi there, kayanl (and everyone else!). Mmm, restaurant in downtown Birmingham. There are some good ones. Count me among the Trolls -- Royal Oak -- but I just moved to Michigan a bit over a year ago, so I'm still getting settled.

Hi! I am glad to see there are some Yoopers on here! I just moved to the Newberry area from the SE Ohio/Toledo, OH area. Definitely a different life style up here, but I am adjusting! I grew up in a small town in WV, so I am no stranger to rural living.

Thank You for saying Hi!! And Hi back! And yeah how cool is that right?

I wonder if the others are feeling the insane pull of the fresh strawberries coming out of the fields right now! OH man I had two small ones yesterday, oh they were so good, and now my boss is making strawberry cake and pie! EEEE!! It's a good I'm on this diet or I'd be sugar-ed up and gaining weight. :P

I do Protein Power & strawberries are ok...in moderation. I usually eat 2-3 with breakfast, or some cantaloupe. I justify a little more if I get a lot of exercise in...

How many carbs a day do you aim for (or aim under) ? Cantelope oh that would be wonderful. I'm doing under 20 a day so fruit has really been out. And that protein powder, I see a lot of people talk about it, it's good? And no carbs?

I haven't really used any protein powder, I am trying mostly to eat whole foods (emphasis on trying). Protein Power usually gets you around 40 carbs a day, but a lot of days I am at 20. I can even get around 20-30 adding some fruit (cantaloupe and strawberries are pretty low carb). I just usually keep my fruit servings small, i.e. 3 strawberries, a few cubes of cantaloupe, etc. Really the difference in protein power and atkins is that PP doesn't care where you get your carbs from, as long as you stay under a certain amount. The other main difference is a focus on getting at least your minimum protein requirement each day.

40 carbs a day? Whew, way too many for me, thank-you for the info.

I had two small strawberries last night for my desert - DIVINE! Who needs SF candy when S.B's are around, oh yummy

I'm getting a ton of protein doing atkins anyways, all that meat and eggs really adds up you know?

Thank you for your reply, 'preciate it

Hey all I see no one has posted in a while. Just wanted to add another Michigander to the list! Born and raised in Flint, moved out to Lapeer County some 21 years ago and love it here. I have been off my program for a few weeks now, decided today is a good day as any to restart. Nice to see others from MI on here.

Wow over 4 years since anyone has posted here. I'm from Traverse City, MI. Home of the Cherry Capital of the World and the Traverse City Film Festival. Both of which I try to avoid, since I grew up here and am just really sick of the tourists. Anyway. Are there any other Michiganders here?
