If you don't want to eat a 10 carb cookie, then don't, but keep your negative comments to yourself. At the end of "many" days, my carb count us around 105, so personally, I can eat a 10 carb cookie without guilt. As for the comment about taking the recipe to your doctor and asking permission…my doctor and the nutritionalist have both said "everything in moderation"! You can't spend the rest of your life denying yourself an occasional treat. Get a life!!!!'

Many ppl are advised 40 carb PER MEAL…so yes, 10 for a tiny cookie loaded with sugars is a stupid choice.
