Fast Food & Low Carb Dieting

OK - so yesterday I officially started the Metabolism Miracle Diet with my Husband.  We are trying to stay at or under 25 net carbs every day through phase one. As usual, I ran out the door yesterday morning with no plans for lunch and by 1:00 PM I was ready to chew off my own arm I was so hungry. I figured a half size Baja Salad from Wendy's would be a great low-carb choice.

The half sized portion (minus the tasty tortilla chips) is:
Reading Labels.
Low Carb is can be tricky
once you realize sugar is
in almost EVERYTHING!

370 calories
26g of fat
15g of protien
20g of carbs
6g of fiber.

Total Carbs – Fiber = Net Carbohydrate. So for this salad 20g (carb) minus 6g (fiber) = 14 grams of net carbs.  Oy vey! I am still learning... I wonder what had all the carbs? The 15 kidney beans in the salad perhaps?

It seems it is going to be quite the learning curve for us as sugar and carbs are in everything we eat!  But I really want to give this system the ole' college try!
