It was only a small salad really. I allowed 1c for the mixed leaves and then 3 for the cucumber - should that be lower?

Looks like your carb counts are too high love, I wouldn't have counted any for breakfast, lunch looks to high as well, where are you getting your carb contents from?

Hi Jim,

I'm getting them from a website. Maybe I'm looking in the wrong place, can you recommend a site?
How would you have worked out the carbs?

Its carb counter . org I think it may be down to me not getting measurements right, don't really understand the cup thing! I prefer grams etc!!
Is there a better site to get info from?

Also I am reading labels where possible - eg salami and mackeral
Also I read somewhere that everything contains some carbs - eggs, bacon etc thats why I have just given them 1 carb each. Should I not add this to the carb total?
 
#17
Not unless you are eating huge amounts I wouldn't. Did you see the carb counter I posted?

Thanks for the site, I've just noticed the per 100g column!! Will use that but do I use the carbs amount or ECC?

You use the ECC count as it's the count after the fibre is removed love.
