Carb Surprise
 
In a good way!

I didn't realize ************ was tracking carbs as well as calories. Had my UD today at 2032 calories. With bread at breakfast, lunch and dinner, along with a little chocolate, I thought it was going to be VERY high carbs!

Result? 121 carbs for the day. That IS a lot when you're used to 20-30, but it's still below my RDA of 165 (which we all know is too high!).

So - I could easily lower that to under 100 a day, just removing the bread from breakfast, and I think that'd be a reasonable, healthy level.

I guess when you've been low-carbing for a while, bread and sugar really DO gain villain-ous status!

I use *** too, and I always check out my carbs, minus any fibre! Not watching them to reduce them, just out of interest!

Btw, when I saw the title of your thread " carb surprise" I thought it was going to be an UD recipe! Lol!

I like the "feels goooooood!" comment! Doesn't it, though and after a while there is no guilt attached to those larger carb numbers, either. I was SO :jumpjoy: when I realized that my poor metabolism actually did MUCH better with a higher carb count, it seemed to be starving and needed more carbs to start me losing again. Too weird, but very cool at the same time! ;)

And :notwrthy: for the upcoming recipe (and maybe a few other "Chistmas cookie recipe will follow?!) :hugs:
