    There are certain brands you can trust and certain ones you cannot. Honestly I just eat whole food and once in a while throw in a "low-carb" treat. Most things made with splenda are good, I would rather have something that uses splenda than sugar alcohols or whatever else. What did you have in mind?? Also, I wouldn't trust the atkin's brand stuff..... too many rumors about hidden sugars etc

    Actually you have to look at the nutrition info for each item, cause sometimes someone will advertise their product as low carb but someone else makes the same thing with less carbs. Or you can find the same thing with more carbs but higher % of those being fiber which would end up being better. Depends alot on specifically what you are looking at product-wise and what your current goals are.

    I like the nutrition labels that have the carb and fat types broken out. You need carbs anyway, just not high-GI ones (most of the time)

    Also, just because it's low carb doesn't make it good. Light Beer is low in carbs. =o)
