I am at 40gs of carbs a day now and adding in things I had stopped eating just to get there--I had LC toast with splenda and cinnamon this morning with 1/2 cup cottage cheese and a shake for breakfast instead of the usual chicken salad with cheese cubes. Usually breakfast is about 3 carbs today it was 13! Lunch is typically about 10 and dinner is around 8--tonight I got it clear to 15 with spaghetti squash and spaghetti sauce, 1/2 cup of blueberries and raspberries mixed and whipped cream with a snack of pork skins and salsa con queso. MMMMMMM. . .I thought I had to swear off toast with cinnamona nd sugar--splenda works great and tastes great too! Salsa con queso has some sugar but it is excellent on pork rinds--maybe better than on corn chips! It has 5 carbs per serving--2TBS but it is my one indulgence right now! and so far no side effects--unlike most of the SF candies!
