For instance, FF Yogurt, or even Greek Yogurt that has the fruit in it is sweetened (I don't like the plain) so I wondered how you accounted for the sugar...is that in the carb count?
Another question I have is: Are we counting "net carbs" when doing our calculations? I'm not sure that question was answered definitively.
Thanks so much!
I have only been on phase 3 for a week, but my understanding is that the Greek Yogurt or even the regular yogurts with fruit in them are not recommended. My coach advised me to add my own fruit in the plain yogurt, which I have and is pretty good. I personally am trying to cut out the " extra " sugars, and try to stick to the splenda/stevia allotments, since I have already grown accustomed to it. :-) You count the "Net Carbs" when doing your calculations..
