    I have just been wondering if anyone else has problems with using to many carb but not enough calories? I am trying to keep my calories up to my limit and my carbs down, but i am finding it hard to do! If anyone had any tips i would love to hear them!! :D

    i dont know des, you need to keep your calories up hun, otherwise you will come to a stand still with your weight!! My fat is normally lower than 20g a day and definitely no more than 30!! I think it was 13g yesterday!!

    I would be careful with MFP because I have had to edit so many items as the information is wrong
