A few things to remember if you're watching carbs.......
* For snacks make them protein-rich. Hard-boiled eggs, slices of hard cheese, a handful of nuts.
* Be aware that 'diet', 'light' or 'no added sugar' products, especially drinks, may still contain more carbs than you can afford to spend.
* Of course, not all carbohydrates are created equal. There are good carbs (whole grains, fruit, legumes) and there are bad carbs (white flour, refined sugar, high fructose corn syrup, white rice.)
* Not all vegetables are low in carbs. Certain vegetables should be avoided if you’re looking to go low-carb. Examples include starchy or sweet-tasting veggies like peas, corn, carrots, and sweet potatoes.
