    that i am not having enough carbs?

    I have 100g of lettuce, 56g of cucumber and 100g of another veg such as spring greens.

    This roughly equates to 5/6g of carbs?

    help me, is this why i am stalling? i was actually counting them at the start and the weight was falling ( i know its water etc) but i think my greens portions have fallen a bit

    something must be stalling you then, chese stalls some people, do you eat a lot of that?

    its going to have to be trial and error, 1 week dont eat cheese, see if there is a loss....then move onto the next thing....

    I would use the count on the packaging if you feel like your not getting enough, its tricky some people prefer to weigh it out & others prefer to stuff it in a mug!!


    I'm a weigher & then calculate my total carbs... feel like I'm more in control but Jim has lost all his weight using the cup method!

    Sorry I haven't actually helped at all!!

    It's a white spirit so it should be fairly low carb.
