Just off the top of my head, it seemed like quite a few carbs for
induction. But the important point is you are on your way! Keep a
close eye on the carbs, watch for hidden carbs (the nasty little buggers
hide everywhere)

And keep up the exercise!

yes, it's correct.

you could do better than iceberg lettuce, though - there's zero
nutritional value in that stuff. it's like cardboard soaked in water.

Eggs - 5, avocado - 4, lettuce - 0, cauliflower - 1, dressing maybe 2-3,
tea - 6 at most, total 19. Frankly, I have never counted the carbs from
coffee or tea.

i can certainly understand being on a budget. you might look into using
cabbage instead of lettuce - i personally find it a much tastier salad
base than lettuce, and it's usually pretty cheap.

That's what FitDay says, but that is with rounding. So the eggs actually
would be 3 if large eggs, 4 if extra large, see you didn't give enough
detail to figure it accurately as you didn't say what size your eggs were.
I don't see where my figures are so far off, lettuce is pretty much O after
subtracting fiber. The truth is even the USDA figures are estimates as
items differ slightly among themselves. Ballparking works. If you take in
25-30 carbs instead of 20 you won't do any harm--Protein Power starts at 30.
If you take in 50 on induction it's a problem but ballparking it will not
get you to 50 from 20.

Hey, I didn't say you took in 25-30 carbs, I said you probably took in 19 at
the most. What I said was that if you take in 25-30 it is not fatal to the
program.

Fitday gets most of its numbers from USDA. The problem is the way I was
doing it, I was putting in 1 egg and FitDay rounds it up to 1 carb, if you
put in 5 eggs, it will display 3 carbs. The fractional carbs are in its
database but it doesn't display them for a single unit.

Frankly, I think you are obsessing a little too much about carbs.

I planted a window-box of mixed salad leaves today - I'm hoping for some
reasonably priced leaves to brighten up a salad real Soon Now : )

I hope you have a bountiful crop. I am just waiting for the warm
weather so I can plant various lettuces in my containers in my
backyard. I love container gardening.

I've got 2 black thumbs, so I'm not getting my hopes up very high - but I
did spend some of my Christmas money on a "container gardening for dummies"
type book, plus a nice big bowl, some compost and some seeds, so I'm on my
way : )

There's an idea, since my wife and I are living in an apartment. It will
be 6 months or so until our place is ready. Thx

Yes I saw that book. Great book. I wanted to buy it but all my
available cash is going towards old student loans and electric heating
bills so money sure is tight for me.

You know I think I will look for it in the library tomorrow. I have a
book to return.

I save all kinds of seeds from tomatoes, etc. It is fun to see what
