How do you count your "extra's"?

Do you count carbs, calories or both? And what are your goals or limits for them? I was told to stick to only foods on the list, 500 cal. Of protein and my 2 veggies and a fat. I asked about all the stuff that in not on the list but in recipes they hand out and was just "yeah, it's confusing". Ugh.

I then asked how many calories and carbs for the day and was told between 20-30 carbs and about 800 calories. This should help me.

Do you log your food intake online? Which site is best?

I have been wondering the same thing! I was told between 25 and 30 carbs daily. I started logging my daily intake into an online journal last week... and boy, was I surprised at the "hidden" carbs I was not counting. Mostly in artificial sweetner packets! I was using Equal way more than I should be!

I started using *********.com for my journaling and it is great for me!!

I continue to wonder what the daily carb "average" is for most using the Medi WOE. I am trying to keep mine around 25.

Thanks for asking this question... I will be looking forward to your answers.

Be blessed!!

Have you seen the EZ Sweet drops? You can find them online at Netrition and on Amazon. They are fantastic! Only one or two drops equal a packet of sweetner, no aftertaste and no carbs.

I joined Myfittnesspal and love it. I think this is going to really help me to stick to the plan with less confusion. Thanks!

My MWL center told me about EZ Sweetz a long time ago, but I didn't realize that they ARE liquid Splenda. I finally figured it out on my own.... Nothing like "reinventing the wheel"... I love them, and need to order more!

Thanks Lisaann and Mary!
I have been looking for liquid artificial sweetener in the grocery store...but, haven't seen any yet. I have ordered from Netrition once before so this is a MUST for me. I have used the sugar free syrups for my coffee and hot tea and it is just not quite sweet enough for me. This will be great!

This stuff will fit the bill then! It is really sweet! I use only 1drop in my hot tea. Even DH can't tell that it isn't real sugar.
