Salad dressing as a carb? I just ate lunch with another low-carber here, and she doens't count the dressing she throws on her salad, but I do. After that, I didn't even want to ask her what she thought about the crutons she put on hers.

I also make sure and include anything I drink in my carb count, like the Pepsi I am enjoying right now. And, if I eat a large amount of BBQ meat or beans, I throw in one carb count for that meal, too, since the BBQ sauce has to count for something. I don't count veggies, but I know that some people do...


up to 2 icky carbs today...conserving the remaining 2 for pasta! tonight
