Has anyone else discovered FUZE Slenderize? It's this great drink,like juice but with only 1 carb and zero grams of sugar per serving plus 100% vitamin C! It comes in 4 or 5 flavors.

Carb Counting by Example

Correct carb counting is very important. The members of this group can present pictures of their meals and the estimated carb counts. This way we can improve our judgement and learn to overcome common mistakes by sharing our experiences.
