    I have a question. It seems like you eat more filling things than I do which is awesome. But was wondering about keeping carbs under the limit. I'm having a real problem with using carbs up and having like 4 or 5 left for supper yet I have 995 calories left to use. I'm new. Guess you can tell lol. Would love your insight on it.

    You might want to start your own thread for this, but generally if you look at your diary you should be able to identify which foods are contributing the most carbohydrates to your diet. Eating less of those earlier in the day will give you more to have later.

    Also, it looks like you may have adjusted your carbohydrate goal to be lower than the default. Is there a reason for that? If you adjust your goals lower but still eat things like potatoes, higher carbohydrate soups, and fruit, you're going to struggle.
