Honestly I don't have one. But usually my first drink of the day is a huge bottle of water during my morning workout

I must admit that it is coffee. I have that one cup in the morning and the rest of the day is either water or tea.

What is my favourite Winter activity?

Walking my dog on a sunny day, as long as it's not too icy out, which can make it quite the ordeal and not very safe.

I've never tried a low carb diet but carbs are not usually a problem for me, it's other things. I think I would agree that moderation in everything is best though.

I agree - moderation in all things is the best way to reach long term weight loss goals and keep off the weight.

Although I do know of some women with auto-immune diseases as well as infertility (PCOS can cause insulin resistance), have success with low-carb diets.

I think that each individual will find a nutritional plan that will fit them - it's not a "one size fits all" type of thing.
