    I don't know sorry @TeBe. I tend to stick to around 40g per day like ZE does. If I don't have sweet fixes like theses I wont stick to it so for me I'm better off just having them.
    I did a quick count after checking the packets of nuts and coconut and it looks like around 45-48g carbs for the batch. It makes around 12 serves so maths wasn't my strong point...let me get the calculator....4g per serve!

    Yes it is hard to track carbs when making recipes. I make a lot of casserole/stew/curry type meals at this time of year and its difficult to know exactly how many carbs are in there.

    When I am being super strict, I will often eat a piece of steak or chicken breast just so I can get a clear idea of how many carbs I am eating. Anther good meal option is an omelette for keeping track of carbs.

    Delirium, I lost a lot of baby weight by staying away from bread, pasta etc. I found the weight came off really quickly to begin with. When I hit a plateau with the weight loss, thats when I started counting carbs.

    Hi girls. Sorry to crash but if anyone can offer advice I'd appreciate it. I went high protein low carb a couple of weeks ago for about 10 days. I got through the first few days of feeling rubbish and was going pretty well. But I got sooo constipated I never, ever get constipated so it was a big deal to me. I was eating heaps of low carb veg and raspberries/blueberries everyday. It got so bad I gave up on it. I lost 1kg in that time (I only want to lose 3kg - I was hoping it would kick start me but it went a bit pear shaped).

    Any advice? Xx

    20g carbs per day? That's one slice of bread!
