The carb count for this meal is actually less than 1 gram per chicken breast...this carb counter on here's kinda screwy...but I promise you, check the ingredients and you'll see it's less than 1 gram..

Yumaroni! Sounds great for South beach. I think even lowfat dieters could use it with reduced fat or fat free cheeses, egg whites, and reduced fat margarine. There are many options now.
