That's about what I'm averaging right now, since I started paying a little more attention to it. Usually between 80-100. But before I was hitting 150 and sometimes higher. Not that I've ever really been big on the carb thing. I never bothered counting carbs and I still lost over 80 pounds. But now that I'm almost at goal and I started going up on the scale (eeeeeeeek!) I decided to do something different and figured I'd try watching how many carbs I was eating. I was 136 (even hit 137 one day) and now I'm back down to 134. Possibly just water weight, but whatever. It makes me feel better to be closer to 130 than 140.

The Adkins guide says that you should be eating from 40-60 carbs per day. I'm just in the introduction though. You should check out the book, it has all the answers you'll need

Spaghetti squash is great for low carb, as are summer squashes, most of the winter type squash are a lot higher.

I don't write it down either but know I probably should. I also probably only eat 25-30 carbs a day but I've only been doing this for about 4 months. I really wanted to be strict until I was closer to maintaining and then I will up it as long as I'm not gaining. I really think it's not just the amount of carbs but also what carbs you are eating like there is a difference in my weightloss if I eat vegetables as carbs vs a lot of salad dressing etc. Like I think I could get a way with eating more carbs if I wasn't so lazy and prepared my veggies with dinner more. That's my opinion though.
