Jell-O Dark Chocolate Decadence Sugar Free Mousse Temptations

I just have one question for all atkins followers, in the label, the decadent dark chocolate flavor says it has 10g carbs, of which 6g are of sugar alcohols, and 1g of diet fiber...so 10 - 6 - 1 = 3g net carbs...is that right??...I'm asking because even though it's correctly divided on the food section, if I add it to my diary it will count 9g net carbs...so I'm confused now...can anyone clear this please??

It's just a diet, not a religion
Ok...I sense quite a lot of disagreeement in this post.
I think one is free to choose any diet/life plan he/she wants as long as it is healthy and it doesn't deprive the individuals from all the good nutrients nature has to offer, and it also promotes exercising regularly.
Opinions are just that, if a comment doesn't suits you, just disregard it and move on, no use on wasting time trying to make the other person agreeing with you. Results speak for themselves, and we're all different...maybe what works for me will make another person gain weight...who knows?
I enjoy reading all posts and learning what to make part of my lifstyle and what to disregard.
There are other sites to be hostile...this site is for support, everyone should have that in mind.
I enjoy the support of my buddies and I try to offer the same.
Simple as that.

Thinking of switching diets... what's ur recommendation?
wooow....what an argument!!
Leaving aside the fact that this post has gone to so many tangents, my true recomendation is to rsearch all the diets out there and stick to your favorite for good...or take the best from each and create your own lifestyle.
I admire MimiMuffin and k8yk because that's what they did...they incorporated all the best part of each diet and created a very functional and unique program that has given them results, and most importantly results that will last as long as that lifestyle goes on.
I hope that makes sense, lol

breaking through the plateau
The Couch-to-5K Running Plan sounds interesting, and it might actually work.
I'm also an elliptical addict and although I'm not on a plateau I'm moving rather slowly. I will try the plan for a change.
I totally agree with katballew, once a week it's nice to up the calories in a healthy way, I noticed that since I've done that, eventhough my weight moves slowly, my measures are changing and I feel much more energetic...try it one week, see what happens.
