I started my induction today...I signed up for fitday, to assist in counting my carbs, and to be more present in the foods that I put in my mouth. So, after lunch I punch in what I ate.Than I FREAKED I had two cups of steamed broccoli and it said that it was 19 carbs!! Is this true!! If so, that means my first day has all ready been ruined.And I have not had dinner which I was planning on a grilled chicken breast salad. Should I not have any veggies (or other carbs)with dinner HELP!!!

This is what I have eaten so far.

Break~ 4 eggs w/ 2 TBSP of cheddar ( I know a lot of eggs but thats all I had in the frig.

Lunch~ Hot wings w/ Franks red hot sauce and 2 cups steamed broccoli with 1 TBSP of butter.

that sounds about right, but dont forget to subtract the fibre...that gives you your net carbs. Thats the number you want to worry about.

Depending on where you look, the broccoli likely had about 9 grams of fiber

Cool

Thanks Robin and Yogini!! I forgot about subtracting the fiber. So, is 2 cups about 9.5 carbs? Woohoo!! that would mean I'm still below my 20 carbs for the day.

I'm not sure how much Commrcial ketchup is, I guess it depends how much sugar they put in it. Judy H
