    Hi ya,:)

    So many people that I have spoken to don't know what is classed as a low carb food.

    I am sure that there is lots of people out there who are thinking the same and would like to know what their options are especially if they want to reduce their carb intake, in preparation for the diet.

    Maybe if we all knew what our healthy options were we would not pick the wrong things if temptation got the better of us.

    I think this is something we need to clarify especially as the seasonal time is approaching us very quickly. And no-one wants anyone to fail as everyone's will power will be put to the test.

    Its very interesting as the things you thought might be high are actually low.

    Example:

    30g of Chedder has 0 g.
    100g of Brocolli has 0 g.

    Where as:

    Pasta plain, all shapes, cooked 180g has 44.5g

    Roots are generally high carb as they are food storage for the plants.
    If really want to OD on carbs try honey on your parsnips.
    The official carb amount is a bizzilion

    Hi Nick

    Just wondering whether you're doing low carb or low GI?

    Hi ya,:)

    I am doing low GI where I can . Basically I am trying to eat healthy 80% of the time and where I can have white meat and fruit and veg as much as possible.

    I am using the Gillian mcKeith "you are what you eat" book as I have always liked what she say's. Even before I started the Cambridge I started to eat what she said and I lost about 1 stone and half in about 4 weeks.

    Nick :)

    Wow, great losses on Gillian M.

    I tried the zero carb noodles - just a taste and they were really good. They take the flavour of whatever you put with them. They're zero cals too and according to my DH who ate them very very high fibre!
