There are so many low carb pizza ideas. I really need to try some of them.

I found that I ate potatoes and bread out of habit and didn't love them as much as I thought I did. To me the real challenge was coming up with veggies to fix for supper as we were eating either potatoes, rice, or pasta with supper every day. And sometimes with lunch too. Potatoes were easy and a no brainer so I've had to be more creative now. I know they are a no-no on atkins and many low carb plans but I consider potatoes, peas, corn, beans as some of the better starches. Much better than grains.

I love crackers too. I was formerly a carb addict and it has not been easy weaning myself off a lot of this stuff.

I crave both sweet and salty. Combining the 2 is great. LOL.

Funny, I always thought I was the oddball regarding carbs. I can usually pass on sweets, however, it is the starch that is my downfall, Pizza, great baguette, Thanksgiving dressing...

I love chips and popcorn too and am lucky that on my plan I can have popcorn occasionally.

I've never been much into pasta really and only like homemade killer bread so it's easy for me to pass on most of it.

There is no way I can be noble and say "fruit and salad," although I love them both. I'm with Eddie...pasta and bread. Whatever happened to the staff of life? :(

I think popcorn (homemade on the stove) would be my downfall once I started eating it. Bread would be a close second, but I think I'd choose popcorn first...

What carb food can you just not give up or what food do you seam to eat that adds the most carbs to your daily carb count? For me its pasta. Be it spaghetti or lasagna and I LOVE bread.
