This may be a silly question but I was wondering if the net carbs changed during the cooking process. I recently added the Atkins app to my phone to help keep track of my net carbs. I am a creature of habit and usually eat 2 to 3 eggs scrambled with cheese and real bacon bits with atkins chocolate shake for breakfast. I've been calculating that to be much lower than the app. The app states 3 scrambled eggs with cheese Is 6 net carbs. Is this correct? Does anyone have a better app recommendation on counting carbs? Please help Smiley

Hi Bratz984, welcome to the party Smiley I have always counted eggs as 1 net carb.....cheese depends on what your using. For instance pre-shredded cheese has potato starch added to the mix to stop the slivers from sticking together. Some cheeses do have carbs. If you're eating 3 eggs with zero carb cheese and an Atkins shake for breakfast I would count as below.

3 eggs- 3 net carbs
zero carb cheese- 0 net carbs
Shake(assuming you're drinking the 2 net carb shake) 2 net carbs

Total breakfast 5 net carbs.

My rules are pretty simple, stay under 20 net carbs per day during your weight loss period of time and you will continue to lose weightCool

I'm not much on apps, I like to do all my own counts. I do use my FAT TO SKINNY carb counter book often for that purpose.

Thank u so much Doug! I am going to be ordering a few things from you this evening. I will make sure to add the carb counter. I have been doing lower carb for the past 3 weeks and have only lost 3 lbs. I'm discouraged but still determined. Because of your book I have just recently started staying under 20 carbs a day. It's a learning process for sure.  Thank you so much for all you do to help pple like me become healthy Smiley

Welcome to the FTS family, bratz984! Smiley Smiley Smiley

I've been living the FTS lifestyle since August 2010, and never looked back.
And never been healthier or happier with myself since I was 30 years old (I'm 64)! Grin

Doug's carb counter is a great reference.
Here are a few more online carb counter references for those items not in Doug's counter.

Looking forward to hearing about your FTS journey!
