So I haven't been totally faithful when it comes to 20 grams a carbs a day. I figure since I was having hundreds of carbs a day before that if I keep it under a hundred or less a day then I'm golden. We'll see how well my theory works. I'm doing pretty good keeping up with the exercise so that's a plus.
Since I'm a super picky eater I've found a few things that I can still eat to soothe the cravings I used to have. Hershey's makes sugar free candy. The regular Hershey's miniature flavor is actually pretty good. It doesn't taste fake at all. They also make Mint chocolate sticks that are really good. Edy's makes a slow churn ice cream that is 1/2 the fat and 1/2 the calories and it truely taste the same as regular ice cream. I still can't indulge as much as before but it does the job. We just trick ourselves and eat our ice cream out of Emma's snack bowls.
