Although I've sort of watched my carbs for a few years now, I really need to get some weight off - as in 6 stones! So I'm carb watching with vengence!
My worry is this - I entered my days food and drink diary today for example - the carbs come in at 70g (12% of daily intake) but my calories....!! I'm over my alloted allowance (the site I've been using is heavy on calories so I can't help but take notice!) by a massive 800 cals (totalling 2623cals)
Now do I have to cut down? If so in what area? Or do I just totally ignore the calories as the books says? Is it ok to have the cream in coffees, 'desserts', breakfast etc? Or should I switch to skimmed milk?
Ive logged -
70g carbs - 12.5%
142g protein - 25%
160g Fat - 63%
My vegs are up so that ok, protein with all meals - ok..... so that really only leave the fat....
