    The fish will be fine provided you counted in the carbs, The flaxseed is a puzzle, I suspect it's something to do with the husks, which are all fibre, it's the same with rice, wild (brown) rice still has the husk and that is why it's slightly lower carb weight for weight.

    Might be a good idea to buy a coffee/nut grinder. I bought a Krups one from Amazon. It cost £19 with free postage. I grind my own flaxmeal now from either golden or brown seeds - I like the taste of both - and since the seed is cheaper than the ready ground meal you save quite a lot. The grinder pays for itself in no time. I couldn't be without mine, now!

    I adore MIMs and flaxmeal products. This morning I had a rich chocolate MIM with cream cheese frosting. I gave those up for Lent because they are my alltime faves lol so I am reintroducing them now.

    The grinder will make wonderfully smooth 'flour' and you can grind your own nut flours, too, for use later on in OWL.

    BTW you subtract the fibre carbs from the overall flaxseed carbs. One pretty much cancels out the other, hence many Atkineers regarding flaxmeal as a 'carb wash'.

    Good luck and have fun!

    i bought some ground flax today (FINALLY!) and the carbs per 100g is 1.7g and yet the fibre is 28.9g !!! which confuses the crap out of me but still, ill go with 1.7g even though that sounds bonkers!
