Go at it from another perspective. What will boost energy-vitality- toxin removal- faster gut healing-and assist in weight lose. Algae, kelp, antioxidants for liver work- tissue support- anti-aging tools-beauty foods of clean sources- awesome flavors and colors; are all avenues of calorie adding without a spot of gluten. Empty ‘carbs’ are not the best answer. What do you like and what will you set as a daily goal? Are you getting green leafys, omega-3’s of amaranth- flax- raw nuts- or chia seeds- many different kinds and colors of rice, gut friendly probotics, assorted fruits in pleasant attractive servings? Explore vegetables and fruits new to you; stir-fry, steam, crock-pot, blend smoothies or other preparation techniques can jazz-up your options to fill out those unknown ‘wanted’ calories and add a power play to the options category. emoticon

The greatest love story is your own.
If you miss out of life to the fullest; they win.
You are the happiness master of your own mind.
Thought is an active dynamic energy to harmonize and corrolate good.
Clear all paths to love thru forgiveness.
I may not recognize the significance until some time later.
Is my resistance to change really that strong?
Impatience does not provide the time to learn the lesson;
Awaken new ways to approach the dissolving of a problem;

I very seldom come close but I find that when I do I don't feel so good so I don't worry about getting all the carbs in that they say we need.

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

Sometimes SP has a higher carb level than people are comfortable with. If you feel OK, then I wouldn't worry about it. Some people on the low carb teams eat 0 carbs daily...

I do eat fruits and veggies, and count them every day. I will try to incorporate more grains, and if I'm still short that's ok!
Thanks everyone for your suggestions.

My SP amount is 180+ but I read somewhere on SP that 120 is ok.

I get most of my carbs from fruit or oatmeal.

Oh, and also I splurge on gluten free oats (it's worth it to me) so I can have oatmeal, make certain baked goods, etc.

And I bake my own gluten-free crackers, which are delish and a way to get carbs.

Hello! Carbs can be a tricky one, and I also didn't have enough of them when I first started eating gluten free. There are several grains you can still enjoy: quinoa, millet, rice (red, brown, wild, etc.), corn. Also, you mentioned potatoes, but don't forget the many varieties of winter squash that are coming into season soon, and yams and sweet potatoes, too.

Are you not counting fruits and veggies as carbs? They count, as well, and are a great source of carbohydrates along with their vitamins and minerals.

Hope that helps!

Hi Everyone! I am one week into tracking my calories, fat, etc... and every day, I am not eating enough carbs. I know it's because I am eating mostly gluten free, so trying to add carbs without bread, and while keeping within my calorie goals is difficult! Any suggestions? I ate potatoes and beets with dinner last night, a sandwich with GF bread for lunch and still didn't come close...
