I have not tried the shirataki noodles but some people say the liquid they come in smells fishy so be sure that you rinse them well under running water.

I am at 125gms of net carbs a day and it gives me lots of choices.

Shirataki noodles...find them at walmart. Different brands. I once found "zero noodles."

Different consistency but works great in my asian inspired noodle soups...yum.

Try lower carb instead of low carb. I have about 150 grams of carbs per day! It helps to decrease my appetite, too.

Zero noodles work well for me in my noodle soups.

I would not eat more than 2-3 servings of fruit a day. Much better to have lots of veggies. Too much fruit can cause blood sugar problems and cravings. I only eat mine with meals as a dessert. It satisfies my cravings for sweets. But I am still careful not to eat too many carbs at one time.

Thx. I like the idea of fruit with the meal.

Tonight I made a fish soup with sweet potato which appeared to tame my sweet cravings. I did not skimp on the fish, and used plenty of olive oil.

I guess, when I think about it, I had been having lower carb sweets but sweets nevertheless which got my insulin going and increased my appetite.

You'd think i'd learn to stay away from sweets. I am thinking of making a small fruit salad with homemade whipped cream as a special treat to have with dinner.

There are different ways to do this. I do Intermittent Fasting and have hypoglycemia and GERD so my approach may be different. I try not to eat after 7 - 8 pm as I go to bed between 10 - 10:40pm. I don't eat until 10 or 11 am. I think the most important thing is eating enough protein and fat when you eat. I don't eat a lot of carbs starting out as if I do I am hungry all day so maybe 15 at most. I don't use milk, I use almond milk. Have eggs, uncured bacon, and a small clementine. In a couple of hours I will be hungry again and will have a large salad with lots of greens, low glycemic veggies, egg whites, meat, maybe some cheese, and homemade dressing. I will have a snack in the afternoon of protein and carb like peanut butter stuffed celery. Then supper will be meat, a couple of low glycemic veggies, and a piece of fruit. Another snack of protein and a little carb at 7-8pm. I find a lot of people, especially women, don't eat enough protein. 3 ounces is not enough.

I struggle so much sometimes but have to view the struggle as worth it.

I have carb cravings from late afternoon until night.

May I ask how u space your carbs or give some examples of how u handle ur day? I don't eat many carbs for breakfast. I just have 6 - 11 carbs of milk for 1-2 cups of coffee along with my eggs and meat.

Unless the white bread is some kind of special no carb bread this is inaccurate. I usually put brand names in the tracker unless it is homemade. This will pull up what you need. Other than buttered white bread I would put in Healthy Life White Bread or Sara Lee White Bread or Wonder White Bread. There is a lot of difference in breads. I then would put in Land O Lakes Unsalted Butter or KerryGold butter. It will be a lot more accurate.

You can probably find another option to track the 30 carbs. I always have to search for an option to fit my carb needs

I started to track again through my adkins app.

I am working my carbs down. 50 net carbs today and still hit 300 on my blood glucose. I am still ill. Time to talk to doc. Change antibiotic perhaps. I am taking correction dose of rapid insulin at night for the past four to five days. Thanks for listening.

Thx. :)

I think I may not tolerate victoza much longer....I am on the lowest dose and still get pains. Need to tell the doc about it.

I may get hungrier at night when the victoza is wearing off?

I couldn't even eat past 700 calories today. Now, I ate some deviled eggs at 9pm. I would rather not eat that late.

Thx for your input.

It's hard to say. Are you spacing your carbs and calories out. Some people have problems if they eat most of their carbs in the evening. Be sure you get plenty of protein with supper.

I"ve been fasting 16 hours per day, usually, and sometimes a 12 hour fast.

I eat some during the 12 pm to 8 pm period but I am under calories--1200 calories when I should be at 1900 calories. I usually get hungry later at night. I ate a late meal at 9.30 pm of .5 patty of pollock burger and some summer squash with butter.

Do u have insight as to why my appetite kicks in later at night from 8 to 10 pm?

I do take victoza at night around 10 pm which decreases how much I can eat. It bothers me too much to take it during the day.

I have the same problem. I'm allowed 125gms of net carbs a day but have to space them out. i don't tolerate a lot of carbs for my first meal of the day either so I try to eat more protein at it and then space the rest out to 2 other meals and a snack late in the day. I think most experts say not to eat more that 45gms of carbs at a meal and 15gms at a snack but that would be more than you and I are allowed.

I have been spiking with my blood glucose, from 200 to 299 after I eat. It is frustrating, as I think I am eating well. I average between 100 to 125 net carbs per day. Today, I noticed I ate too many carbs at one time. I had 57 carbs for dinner. I guess my body can't handle that anymore.

I am continuing to lose weight, but the blood glucose is wonky.

I should check to see if I have a uti and not know it. My diabetes doc won't grow a culture. My prior endocrinologist said that they have to grow a culture with diabetics. A uti doesn't always show with the dip stick tests. I guess I am going to have to tell her what to do.

You don't have to eat rice. For most people the less grains they eat they more they lose. That is why grains, sugar, and starches are eliminated in most "phase one" phases. They all convert easily to sugar. Sour cream has 1.2gms of net carbs in 2 tbs. On some low lower carb diets it is considered more of a condiment than dairy. Some people like crustless quiches, poached eggs, fried eggs, frittatas, deviled eggs, boiled eggs, etc. If you don't like eggs than you can have leftovers for breakfast. Meat. Some plans allow V8, tomato juice, low carb protein drinks, flax cereal as long as it doesn't contain other grains or sugar, etc .

I'm not a huge fan of rice but I'll keep that in mind. Does sour cream count for dairy intake? Also any suggestions for breakfast meals besides omelettes and egg scrambles? thank you for your help :)

Good idea. Concentrate on getting your carbs mostly from low glycemic veggies and fruits, plus a daily serving of seeds/nuts/real cheese, and dairy if you use it. Plus occasional legumes and select whole grains like quinoa or rice. Most people lose weight when eating like this.

Not that I know of. You sort of have to experiment to find your carb threshold. For some it is really low like Atkins at 20gms of net carbs a day. For others it can be up to 150gms of net carbs a day. If you are younger, in good health, and active you can usually eat more carbs.

Is there a site or app that can help us determine how many carbs we can have to lose weight?

We have a tea factory east of here and I want to go there some time. I would like to collect tea pots. They make some really neat ones.

I've been reading and enjoying this thread!

I rarely eat oatmeal, but sometimes fix it for my sis.

I love herbal teas, Harney and sons are great.

I currently drink genmaicha from Harney and sons. I think it is a Japanese green tea with roasted brown rice. It is loose leaf so I steep it in a steeper. I will use the same bit of tea to resteep as it makes water taste so good! My electric teapot holds two liters and I drink most of that each day in addition to some plain water.

Black tea is good for you too. I think it's much better tasting than green tea.

Most experts say that anything under 150gms is low carb so you would be in range.

I try to stay around 100gms a day - where my doctor wants me to be. Not more than 125gms but will go less than 100 if I'm able.

Question: Generally how many carbs do most of you have per day? This month I had a good bit more than is recommended but I'm trying to have less meat carbs and more veggie carbs as I feel the veggie carbs are better for my inflammation.

Morticia, I tolerate fruits well too, but not grains very well.

Kick-SS, I, also, have protein smoothies for breakfast, which usually give me the energy I need up until lunchtime.

I have a couple of packages of steel cut oats which I doubt I will ever use. I don't like oats but thought I could learn to eat them. It turned out to be harder than I thought. LOL.

I usually eat off plan for holiday and special occasions. I never go crazy like I did years ago but my body is not as forgiving today like it was years ago.

I love fruit and have it every day. Fruit doesn't bother me but grains do.

Normally I don't eat much in the line of grains, breads, cereals, etc. I do keep a package of steel cut oats here, I cook about 4 servings and will keep them in the freezer, there are times when nothing sounds good...

I do allow myself a day or a meal here and there where I can have a bit of a splurge, I do that if I'm going out to lunch or something like that, seldom when I'm just here alone. Because I don't have anything in the house anymore to splurge on. I try to make sure it only happens a couple times a month or less.

And I eat some fruits, mostly berries because my normal breakfast is a protein shake and with those I'll use 1/2 cup berries. I feel better though when I don't eat breads, etc. I can sure tell the difference when I do.

It's a common complaint. Even healthy carbs are converted to sugar eventually and some of them end up being quite a bit actually. People who are carb sensitive can't eat large amounts of carbs at a time and, if they are prudent, they will choose the best quality carbs which are low glycemic veggies, low glycemic fruits, seeds, nuts. I also am lacking in magnesium and eat sunflowers seeds, spinach, etc.

I am glad to hear you say that about grains because I feel best (less tired) when I don't have them for breakfast, lunch or snacks when I am working since they seem to drain my energy, even the good carbs, like oatmeal and brown rice. I feel that my body is lacking in magnesium, since grains have this as one of their nutrients, so I make sure I supplement with magnesium. I get other vitamins, like B in proteins like meat or beans.

I don't feel that grains are all that healthy. I never eat cereal, doughnuts, etc. I try to avoid wheat, bread, pasta, etc. If I eat any grains they are usually minimally processed such as quinoa or rice and I don't consider them to be health foods either. They are calorie dense and vitamin, mineral, antioxident poor.

I'm not in a phase 1, induction, or wave one period and I'm not real low carb like Atkins so when I want something sweet I have a serving of fruit. My plan allows fruit and I have it every day. Most of the time the herbal teas satisfy me. I'm moving toward whole foods and away from processed foods, junk food, fast food, sugar, transfat, and most grains so I usually only eat dessert on special occasions, like holidays, birthdays, anniversaries and then I usually make it myself and as healthy as I can. I don't drink calories other than dairy and don't do things like shakes, smoothies, etc. I often use fruit puree to sweeten stuff if possible or if I have to use sweetener I use splenda.. If you have carbs to spare and don't mind processed foods and artificial sweeteners, which may or may not trigger you, then you can eat things like sugar free jello, sugar free pudding, sugar free popsicles/fudgsicles, etc. Keep in mind that treats should not be an every day thing or they are not treats.

I drink decaffeinated herbal teas. There are a lot of flavors. Artificial sweeteners are allowed on some plans. I would not get carried away with them though. I would certainly not drink tons of soda. All artificial sweeteners have the same problems, and according to the latest studies, even stevia does. They can briefly spike blood sugar before the body recognizes it isn't sugar. That can cause cravings. In my opinion, if you have to have a diet soda one a day should be the limit . The goal of low carb is to wean your body off the need to constantly be craving and eating something sweet.

Other than water, what is a good beverage for a low carber? I am getting tired of water with lemon.

Also, ideally does the low barb lifestyle mean that we stay away from artificial sweeteners?
I use Sweet N Low every day.

Try to get your fiber from vegetables and fruits. They are much better for you. Drink lots of water and eat healthy fats. It will keep you regular.

I don't recommend cereal, Katherine. In my opinion all processed cereals are bad. They are highly processed. They usually have chemicals, like BHT, and lots of salt. Wheaties has both. The second ingredient in Wheaties is sugar followed by salt and then corn syrup - more sugar. Basically Wheaties are starch and sugar.

Since they are aware of what you are doing they must be okay with it. Exercise is healthy for everyone. It just has to be adapted to meet individual needs.

If you have heart or lung problems that is usually not an option.

Once you reach a certain age and have medical problems doctors usually like to recommend what they want you to do to prevent injury. My doctor is very specific about what he will allow as he doesn't want me making myself worse.

With your medical problems your doctor should be deciding what exercise is right for you. My doctor allows me to walk, swim, do yoga/tai chi/qigong.

If it's nothing but cranberry juice it should not have tons of sugar in it.

It sounds like a great idea. I use a lot of herbs and spices. But need to expand my scope with vegetables as well.

i know that vegetables are the better carbs and that pasta and breads ( or flour based items ) are the ones you stay away from. but i am hoping to find different ways to use my vegetables .

keep on trucking

I think the Kitchen Basics Unsalted doesn't have any MSG except for what would occur naturally. It still has sodium but there is sodium naturally in water. Sodium is naturally occuring in most foods.
