I thought we might try posting our total number of carbs daily to hold us accountable to keep it within our chosen range. My range is 20-25 for now. <today I had 15.5 total

Lilybelle-thats a great idea:idea:I was just going over my carb count for the week and I can't understand why I'm not in ketose anymore. My range is still 20-25 also and on some days I went as low as 16-18 and now I'm stuck.


Today my carbs add up to 18.3 grams.


What am I doing wrong on this carb count.[using the carb counter on the Atkins board.]

Hugs :) BB

BB, you aren't doing anything wrong. I never knew for sure if I was in ketosis or not, but the wt. still came off. Just keep doing what you are doing and it will all work out. Hugs.

Great idea lillybelle, I haven't been counting lately just guess-timating I really should start counting again especially since I'm trying to stick to induction for a while again.

Thanks ladies, I thought it might make us think about the exact number and help us to keep better track of it. It is easy to get too lax and carb creep can really mess us up. Seems like when I do the best is when I write everything down and total it up every single day.

LILYBELLE-Since we're keeping a check on our carb intake. I just want to let you know I found a hidden carb calculator on another forum that might interest & help us. Its:

I should have 23 net carbs by the end of the day. I am estimating that my meal from a cafeteria is about 18 carbs and I am splitting it into lunch and dinner. It is Collards, Green Beans and a skewer of chicken with slices of red pepper between them. I had 2 ozs. of pecans for breakfast. I plan to have a low carb fudge bar before bed (3 Net carbs).

Yesterday 11/14/06 came out to 18 net carbs - a little low for me, but did good even with eating out for hub's bday Monday - I ate 27 carbs.

11/17 I think today is going to be low about 18. I ate breakfast casserole (1.6) Ribs (0), SF gum 2 pcs. (4), Chicken Breast (1), 3 meatballs (2.5) Mock garlic mash (5), and Broccoli (4.3). I may eat a fudge pop later which will bump it up to 21.
