There is no reason to worry about carbs. Your body can do without them if need be, and can manufacture them on its own. If you feel good then don't worry about that!

My SP range is 150-275 and I average around 180. Most of my carbs come from bananas and apples.

I remember this was an issue initially with me as well, but I found some website and based on weight/height that 200 was plenty.

I stopped worrying about getting enough and make sure that I get enough protein and veggies along with dairy.

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.

I think the most important thing is to eat healthy foods. Focusing on carbs, fats, and protein alone just leads to problems (for me). But, I have the same issue with carbs as you all do unless I eat a candy bar, but I don't want to increase my carbs that way... emoticon

most gluten free baked goods are over loaded in carbs. If you have a piece of gluten free bread with your breakfast it gives twice as many carbs as a piece of regular bread. But, like Jen, my doctor told me not to worry about that and to keep my carbs lower then what is suggested. But if you are worried about the carb levels go with brown rice or other gluten free grains to boost your carb uptake.

I'm the same and when I told my dr about Spark telling me that I don't get enough carbs and asked him about it he said not to worry about it and probably get more than they are saying. When I can tell I'm getting the low carb breath thing, I'll carbo load but other than that I don't sweat it.
You can add more with more veggies, rice, quinoa and so on.

hello everyone! :) i'm wondering if anyone else is experiencing the same problem i'm having?? every day i'm anywhere from 35-60 grams under the low end of my carbs. i'm eating gluten free so obviously not taking in as many carbs as i would if i was eating regular food. so my question is two fold: first, we are warned that not eating enough carbs is bad for you, how much is not enough? secondly, how can i increase my carbs and still stay gluten free? thanks!!!! :)
