Arg! Hate it when I don't ask questions at meeting...
Hi, everyone! Went to my meeting last night and was super excited to get all my new materials. Not super excited about having to look up points values again, but it's all part of the process, so I'll live with it. I purchased a new points calculator, which will make life much easier, however I'm having a bit of a problem. I thought I could figure out how to use the calculator, so I didn't ask for help from my leader. Guess what? I can't figure out what number to put in for carbs! I know that sounds so stupid, but I don't know if I should be putting the "Total Carbs" or what to enter. For example:
On a favorite "go to" snack bar that I love, here's what's listed:
Total Carbohydrates 11g Dietary Fiber 1g Sugars 0g Sugar Alcohols 5g Other Carbs 4g
I entered 11g for carbs into the calculator. Do any of you know if that would be correct? I don't want to wait until my next meeting and then find out I've been doing this wrong for a whole week.
P.S. I have no idea what sugar alcohols are... how sad I didn't know what was in my food. I think this new plan is going to be great for my general knowledge about what I'm putting in my mouth!!
