    Hello again!

    Boy are you going to get sick of all my questions :p

    So I've popped in all my food for today and my carb count comes to 16g.

    So how do i top this up? The book says you can only have 3 cups of vegetables a day... which I have already added to my calculator...

    I don't want to eat too few carbs... What else can I add... Meat won't make a difference!

    Thank you!

    Confused of Canterbury :D

    You don't have to use them. I think he says it to make sure you're getting your three cups of veggies a day. If you are then it shouldn't be a problem :)

    Also, ask as many questions as you want!

    Agreed: you don't need to use them up - you just need to make sure you don't go over 20g of carbs a day.

    That's great news!
    I didn't know if it worked similarly to calories, whereby if you didnt eat enough your body somehow clung on and did the reverse...

    I'd rather have too few, gives me a buffer incase i've calculated something wrong!

    Thanks everyone xxx

    Hmm - you need to be careful with that - better to have a max of 20 so dont get an unexpected insulin spike!
