How can I cut down on my carbs and limit my fat intake? Also, what should my carb and fat intake be everyday?

Try adding more protein...lean meats (chicken, pork chops, lean ground beef, steak) and low fat cheese. There's even a yogurt called Carbmaster that's really good and low in carbs. Light string cheese is a good snack. Get more veggies in there and use LITE dressings with no more than 3 carbs a serving (ranch and ceasar are my fav). I like to make scrambled eggs with 1 egg and liquid egg whites (in a carton) to add more protein. Look for some Atkins bars for occasional snacks, too. They got some really good ones when you feel like a sweet! Good Luck...Mary.

I'm not sure what your carb or fat intake should be, but to cut down on carbs eat more fruits and veggies for snacks. Yes, fruits have carbs too, but if you are eating fruit instead of a bar or pretzels or something the fruit is better for you. I have found that sometimes instead of chips with a sandwich I eat some carrots, I get the crunch like the chips and a lot less calories, I know they don't taste the same, but it curbs my craving. Also, like honeywife said add more protein, like eggs, greek yogurt, lean meats, etc. I have a hard time limiting my carbs, so it's a stuggle for me, but I'm trying to find more whole grain options for breads, and a little at a time, I'm getting them cut back. I hope you find what works for you!
