There are 19 servings in the loaf.  You know how some loaves of bread start and end small and then get bigger in the middle.?  That's why the serving is approximately one slice.  I have not noticed my blood sugar spike with this product.  I just got so sick of the low carb wraps.

I'll let you know how it goes with this product.

One slice of  bread per day does not seem too restrictive to me.

Has anybody come across Today's Temptations bread?  It seems too good to be true.  Low fat, sugar free, etc. only 2 net grams of carb per slice and it tastes good!

Hi Doug!

I have been eating strawberries, only a half cup, for breakfast because I thought they were the lowest carb fruit.  Now I am reading in a carb counter book that they have 12 carbs per cup!  Can this be true?

Hi Doug!

If you ever do a reprint of your book, would it be possible to add an index?  I spend ages flipping thru the pages for something that i know i read somewhere  in the book, but can never remember where.  Happens a lot!

Thank you guys.  that is the answer I was coming to myself.  I will let you know if the fibromyalgia pain subsides when the carbs are out of  my system.  This could help others.

Hi everyone!  This gets compicated but i'll try and explain.  I have fallen off the low carb wagon a bit over the holidays and during our Wisconsin bad weather spell.  As well as gaining  back 5lbs, I find my fybromyalgia has flared up really bad.  Now i am wondering whether when I was doing low carb I was also ( as a side benefit) getting rid of some of the gluten in my diet.  Now I am wondering if i should go on a  gluten free plan.  But gluten free is very restrictive.  What do you guys think?

Hi!  Thanks everyone for getting back to me.  I am mostly craving apple pancakes, scones,etc.  I am eating too many Atkins type bars.

You are better off without your husband if he is that shallow that he judges you by your appearance after all those years together.

Get fit for yourself, not for him

I have done so well on this plan over the last year, getting 20lbs off etc. etc. but now that the weather is cold i am finding it extremely difficult again.  And i thought I had this thing licked!  Any one else dealing with this winter syndrome?

That's a good point.  I think when you are doing maintenance it is OK to have a little taste of things,,,for example when we are having spaghetti and meat balls I only eat the meatballs but if a little bit of the sauce gets on I'm OK with that.  (I put the meatballs in a low carb wrap with Parmesan cheese.  Meatball sandwhich)
