I thought it was ok to eat broccoli, I also thought it had O carbs. Went way over my 20 carbs today. Can't do this again.

I didn't think broccoli had that many carbs in. Check Atkins web site or look here att NET carbs

Yeah, I use broccoli to up my carbs/veggie carbs if I dont' have enough by dinner time. What helped me as to check out possible foods BEFORE I would eat them here. After a couple of days, you get a feel for what's low and what's high; makes it much easier.
Good luck and know that going over on veggies once in while isnt' a bad thing; just don't make a habit of it. Also, as long as your NCs stay below 50, you should still be in ketosis (fat burning mode).
Take care.

What surprised me is that your broccoli has no fiber!!!!! It is not the carbs coming from broccoli you should be worried about!!!! Broccoli is good for you!!!!!!!!

Took a look at your diet calendar - it's not the broccoli you need to worry about, but the spring rolls with 20g carbs, and the popsicles!

anacal, what the heck are broccoli leaves ? Change it to broccoli raw,or cooked which ever way you ate it will change the NC results.

Eating too much brocolli will not hurt your induction. The Springs Rolls will. Most of your net carbs are coming from them.

Oh and you are not eating enough. You need more fats and veggies.
