Hi Lorelle -
I'm not sure if I understand your question, but I'll give it a shot.
For the first 2 weeks of induction, it's important to stick to the rules of induction - including what veggies and how much are allowed. I think of it as "detox" time.
It's always a good thing to journal what you eat and drink along with the carb count and whatever other nutritional info you want to track. www.fitday.com
is an excellent tool for this.
Since this is a lifestyle change, you're going to have to spend time learning what works for you and re-training yourself on your eating habits. Measure everything, write it down, add it up, walk the aisles in the grocery store and read labels so you will know the carb content of something even if you're out and can't read the packaging on your friend's meal or at the restaurant.
Eventually, it will become more intuitive, but at the beginning, make sure you are diligent! We can't change our habits if we're not aware of them. Journaling your food also helps you to avoid "carb creep."
Did I answer your question?
