    Im getting fed up about reading "watch out for hidden carbs". Why? Surely the nutritional value panels on the backs of packs tells you the carb content of food?

    The reason Im getting fed up is because im frightened that I have eaten something with carbs in it and I dont want to get paranoid!!!

    I need to be lovely and slinky for my 40th in Feb and Im doing my damned hardest to follow the rules (even though I did fall off the wagon last week vut I still had a lot and Im still losing!)

    LOL Girls, I didn't get much time with Colleen this weekend as I was at a stag party in Nottingham .

    The point with hidden carbs is they are ones that don't have to be reported, I have seen them described as false carbs, because they'll affect some people and not others.
