Marnie- the total carbs are typically under 40, but as long as you are following the phase 1 sheet you don't have to worry about it.

Make sure you are not eating the occasional veggies every day.

On average, we take in between 20 and 40 NET carbs per day on Phase 1. Net carbs are what you get when you subtract dietary fiber from total carbs. Do NOT worry about the veggies - everything on the select veggie list is low in carbs and pretty good in fiber so that they are "safe" when we are keeping our carbs low. Just follow the sheet 100% and you will be right on track :)
