This was just one meal after 11am...those numbers SURPRISED me. I didn't realize that avocados would have so many carbs. I looked up the carbs on a couple other sites and they list 11-12 carbs for avocado.
If I am really going to hop on board the low-carb pescatarian life, then I definitely need to do more research. I haven't looked up the numbers yet for my second meal at 5pm. I had salmon, a little rice pilaf and mixed vegetables. Yes, I should not of had the rice pilaf.
My meals don't actually fit in the plan that I set for myself, but I will pat myself on the back for taking the time to look up the numbers and learning how to fix them tomorrow. Does anyone here use a different food tracker or do you all go by sparkpeople's guidelines.?
