Actually you may be surprised to learn that some fruits and veggies actually have a lot of carbs in them. Sugar is classified as a carb I believe. So if you are eating watermelon the sugar content could give you a fair amount of carbs. I did not look over your diet that much...but if you want to cut carbs try cutting out breads (especially white breads) and grains. When you are in myfatsecret for yourself there is an area called my toolbox. There are different settings in there for what nutrition information you want to track. You may want to try tweaking that a bit to show you different stuff as you enter food. The graph will stay the same...but say you want to track your sodium intake you can do that. There are a lot of subtle things that you can do to make this site work the best for you. Find some people on the site that have similar goals and request them to be your buddy. They will assist you with the site. Also check out the forum and post questions on there. Some of the most experienced people on here go on the forum. check out kingkeld's information. He has had awesome results and is a fount of information. Good luck~

Looking at your food that you have posted...LOSE the soda! That is way too many carbs and is wasted calories! Diet or not...soda is bad for you! Drink water! Lots and Lots of water!

You don't have alot of weight to lose so I would concentrate on eating healthy and the weight loss will happen. Pretzels, fries and pop on a daily basis will not be a positive in losing weight or being healthy. Add in more veggies and a little fruit and lose the processed. You'll feel better , lose weight and then once in a while, enjoy those fries.

When adding in fruits and veggies to balance out your carb percentage, avoid or limit higher starch fruits and veggies like bananas, melons, potatoes, sweet potatoes, corn, carrots, peas (I'm sure there are more but can't think of them right now). Fill up on all kinds of greens (lettuce, spinach, kale, broccoli, etc.) and berries are a great source of nutrition in the fruit category.

Then maybe invest in a carbonation machine, very cheap from a hardward store and carbonate your own drinks. a small bit of juice with water carbonated is your own fizzy without all the chemicals and crap in soda pop.
