Default First time around

Ok I have two main questions. . . . Today makes day 5 of no sugar no bread. . . But the more I look into the stuff I have been eating there are still carbs. For instance, the no sugar added fudgcicles that are listed as a dessert option... 12g of carbs? Is that ok? I mean, is cutting out the carbs of the way i use to eat enough? I just kinda feel like this is too easy, I must be doing something wrong.

It is also TOM so I haven't seen much of a weight loss... But I am not that worried....yet. I just don't know if I am doing this right.

It's true that you want to cut down on carbs, but one of the points about SB is that it emphasizes cutting out bad carbs over good (the difference is explained in the books). Nutrition labels break down carbs into categories: fiber, sugar, sugar alcohol (which is generally considered not problematic overall), and other carbs. Look at the ingredients as well. If there's high fructose corn syrup, don't eat it. Foods that have fiber are good -- our bodies need fiber. Plenty of food that's good for us will contain some carbs and that's okay. The point is, esp. for phase 1, to limit your total number of carbs and up your protein intake. Then, in phase 2, you'll learn how to reintegrate good carbs, like whole wheat and brown rice.
