@Dolphin the homemade marinara sauce recipes are on the Doctors website.

@ Buglet that stuff is loaded with chemicals, but you won't be eating it on cycle one anyway. No shrimp until C2. Then you're better off using a healthy ketchup with no high fructose corn syrup, horseradish and lemon juice

Thanks everyone! I will look into marinara sauce and even possibly just buying a can of tomatoes to make my own.

Tomatoes have carbs, so a no carb spaghetti sauce? Chemicals?

I use the canned diced Italian style tomatoes and I also don't think 7 carbs is too many carbs. When you look at the ingredients, just make sure the sugar is toward the end of the list and there is no high fructose corn syrup in it. It is really easy to make your own out of tomato sauce. I thought someone posted a recipe. I don't have time to look tonight because I'm busy sending out team goodies :), but if you can't find a homemade sauce recipe, send me an email and I'll remember to look for one for you.

Walden Farms has lots of good things with no carbs no calories. They have a marinara sauce that I used for shiritake noodles

I personally don't think 7 carbs is a lot of carbs. I think if you don't use it every day, only in one or 2 recipes, then you will be fine.

I never use spaghetti sauce anymore, I put salsa in my bullet and puree it to a sauce, it is great.

Terri, I would say you are losing just the way you are supposed to....slow and steady. Remember, that is what wins the race.

Read the ingredient list. Make sure there is no sugar in it. I found a Classico sauce (don't think it was the plain marinara. Those all seem to have added sugar for some reason) without added sugar, and another brand without sugar. I *think* the standard seems to be right around 7 carbs per serving for the no sugar added ones. Tomatoes are going to have some carbs whether they're sauced or whole.

And this may be why I'm not losing quickly... emoticon

I usually avoid spaghetti sauce during cycle one but for 2 & 3, I just use a normal red sauce (without cheese or extra sugar). Usually I'll buy one that lists as a marinara...but I've never looked for low carb. Probably because this isn't a low carb diet I missed that part of the book. emoticon

You can try a low carb marinara sauce...which is similar to spaghetti sauce only I think marinara is just tomatoes. I would look at how many carbs are in the sauce you have. If you are not sure if it is low, then don't eat it.

I noticed one of the recipes (forgot which one) for cycle 1 lists low carb spaghetti sauce as one of the ingredients. What is considered low carb, like what is the acceptable amount of carbs in the sauce that I can use? Is there anything else I should be aware of?
