LOL. He didn't say I couldn't use it in the kitchen so it gets multiple uses. Nice to get a free scale and it is fairly accurate. I might upgrade some day but this is fine for now.

That is why I weigh instead of measure. It's more accurate. They do have scales at Walmart - several of them. The vet gave us ours. LOL.

i took your advice, i used the scale, it gives you more nuts than the little plastic orange container from 21 day fix, it almost fills the blue container which is 2 0z i believe, . the pre weighed zip lock snack treats are a good idea. thanks for more :-)

the truth will set you free

A serving of nuts isn't much but they are very healthy. One of the healthiest carbs other than veggies. Just a suggestion but things like nuts are better weighed on a scale then using a measuring cup.

Fluffy is right. I'm a certified coronary care nurse. Actually there is no proof that saturated fats are harmful to you. The latest recommendations are not to be concerned about them. Saturated fat does not cause heart disease. Elevated triglycerides are what everyone needs to be concerned about and that is caused by processed carbs.

I get my carbs from seeds, nuts, dairy, veggies, and fruit. I will occasionally have some beans and rarely certain grains. I avoid gluten, especially wheat as it bloats me. It does most people.

you have hit the dieters wall. it is not easy finding things that are enjoyable that don't have carbs or fat. my best suggestion is to join pinterest and put in certain topics like "high fiber" or "lo-fat" and see what pops up and start saving things to a "board" pinterest makes me hungry :-) also look up recipes and categories on "spark" use healthy oils, try to count your carbs/calories and fiber. tracking on spark nutrition is so helpful. i try to include the knowledge gained from doing the "zone" diet for a long time(thats not easy either) just remember the tortoise won the race.

Hi, I have been doing a little research on this topic. It seems the more carbs I eat in a day, my stomach feels more bloated. I'm not sure if this is just in my head or there is truly something to it. I certainly don't want to cut out carbs completely because I believe our bodies need them, but would love some ideas of low carb foods and snacks, besides dairy. Any suggestions or ideas of what has worked for others would be awesome! I love to eat and have a very big appetite at one sitting, which I am working on by drinking more water and eating a little slower. I'm looking for foods that are filling, My "go to" high protein" meal is a meal replacement shake, which is delicious, but I don't want to get "tired" of it and resort back to old habits.
