  • too many carbs cause weight gain. as long as you don't consume more that 60g of carbs a day you won't gain weight. protein boosts your metabolism

  • I don't have the nutrition label to look at but if it's 150 calories or less and contains no high fructose corn syrup and other junk I suppose it's okay on occassion. more than 60 grams of carbs??? That's actually too low for some people and can cause hypoglycemia. I'm a type 2 diabetic and to avoid highs and lows I stick to about 100-120 grams a day and i'm still losing weight. You just need HEALTHY whole grain carbs and not "white" carbs

  • 60 carbs? A Normal diet is around 250 carbs per day, a "low carb" diet is considered around 100 carbs a day. The first stage of Atkins is 20 carbs a day. Sorry, but I am going to respectfully disagree here....LOL
