Can anybody give some tips or advice on counting carbs? I need to refresh my thinking on this.

I found that as long as I don’t eat any foods that contain more than 5-6 net carbs per serving I really don’t have to count carbs. I just read the labels and if the nutrition label shows more than 5-6 net carbs per serving I don’t eat it. I found I can eat several foods containing carbs together as long as none have more than 5-6 net carbs per serving and I eat a little fat and protein with the meal.

Reading labels and the Calorie King book are the tools I use the most. I also have several apps on my phone that I use, especially the app from Spark.
