    I'm going away to Cyprus for a fortnight and going to stick to low carb. We are staying half board so I guess there will be plenty of salads on the buffet - If I had a (large) plate of salad with my meat/fish, how many carbs would I have to count for a dinner plate such as this:

    I'll steer clear of carrots, sweetcorn or too many tomatoes. I do like avocados though :)
    I also might have the odd spoon of mayo ;)
    Thanks

    Thanks for that - I can judge calories from 20 paces away but carbs are fairly new to me. We went away earlier in the summer and I managed to swerve the croissants/pasta/desserts but always came away satisfied and reckoned that I was on about 60g of carbs per day. Only came back 2lb up which went in a couple of days so I was very happy with that and wanted to try to repeat it.

    If I were to be a Carb Nazi (which I am) ;) I'd say to be totally on induction I'd not eat the tomato or onion, on the other hand, it's good and healthy so go for it mate. :D

    I agree with Jim. I just wouldnt eat the onions and maybe take off a few tomatoes or all of them.. It looks yummy...
