    Hi all,

    Have been LL for four months (lost 4 stone) but now am low carbing.

    The other half has done the shopping this week and bless him has bought one or two things that are marked like this..

    For this item: total carbs 45 of which are sugars 2.6.

    He seems to be of the opinion as only 2.6 is sugars this is ok.....

    I'm not so sure (i usually just eat directly off the plan so this type of thing has not cropped up before)

    I have googled and there is a lot about fibre and carbs, but not this type of wording

    Could someone fill me in??

    Thank you

    Tyger

    chocy

    I should mention one of the things he bought was a Atkins chocolate bar which says 2g of carb on the front but rambles on with the similar 'of which is sugars' on the back.

    I would love to try the chocolate (he was so excited that he found some) but would rather make an informed choice.

    Thanks again

    Thanks SuZann,

    Yay, so the chocolate is in, the high carb goodies are out.

    Off to take a bunch of stuff back to tescos...
