Hey there SBers. I just started the SBD on Friday and so far, so good. My husband is doing it with me. Was wondering if any of you have any insight on tortillas on this diet, at least in phase two? :?:

Thanks and looking forward to chatting with y'all more. :)

Look for the whole wheat ones, and make sure they don't have any hydrogenated oils in them. I've found that it's usually easier to find good whole-grain pitas and split them to use for tortillas.

Thanks for your reply. I'm so used to Weight Watchers that it's hard for me to adjust to a diet that doesn't have a complete food list. Know of any helpful websites regarding GI? It'd be nice if there was a chart or calculator out there somewhere.

Thanks again, S

Welcome to The Beach, Sappo. Come sit under my umbrrella for a while!
Here's the URL for a GI chart. There are lots more out there but this is the one I use most.

Safeway has whole wheat tortillas with 2g carb and only 50 cal each. I found them on my explorations over the weekend.
