    max ammount of carbs in a p/f meal?

    I know the aim for a pro/fat meal is to have zero carbs.

    But I was just thinking. I have started to HATE chicken. I cant stand it. So ****ing dry. Only one way of preparing it now makes it eatable for me. I fry it upp with some onion and garlic and then pour down a can of mashed tomatoes over it along with sambal oelek and LOTS of spices. The tomates adds about 5-7 grams of carbs to that meal(I use around 400g mashed tomatoes for 500-600g chicken breasts). I also add some peas and spinach.
    As fatsource I just drink some flaxoil before the meal and chew down some flaxseeds.

    Does those 5-7grams of carbs **** upp the entire meal considering Im using both seeds and applecider vinegar to lower gi?

    100grams of peas has 7grams of carbs in it. In a meal with peas I get maby 2g carbs from them. I have had them in my diet now for well over a month and I am the leanest I have ever been so I think they are safe to use for me atleast. Might drop them when fatloss stopps

    Go for it then dude! I don't feel like checking on the carb content of peas now, but I've always heard that as far as carb content of veggies goes, stay away from peas and carrots.

    We should, we measure things all screwy. We should've switched to the metric system a long time ago.

    I prepare 3-4 meals at once and use one can for those 4 meals. 400g total. around 100g-130g tomato pure for every meal. roughly 5-7g carbs in every meal since the can says 6,5g carbs for 100g tomato puree.

    Approx. 229g/cup. But it's kinda messed up, because grams measure weight, and cups measure size. So, if something is denser, it will fit more gams into a cup.

    We buy things by weight. (Pounds,ounces) And cook things by cups, tablespoons, etc. Never thought about how this doesn't make much sense until now.

    one 20kg plate is 45ibs so I just go by that. 2.2 works also. 2.25 is just a little more accurate. 2.25 is for some reason easier for me to calculate in my head to.

    when we bake bread and stuff like that we use tabelspoon and messurements like that. But most new recepies is in grams instead. I never bothered to learn the teaspoon, tablespoon. My digital food scale is much more handy

    Yes, hence the 2nd sentence in the post you quoted. But the approximation was from a website I googled>

    Anyway to answer the question from personal experience the small amount of carbs will not have any effect on weight loss as long as you try to keep it under 10 Gs of carbs

    But everyone is different so if weightloss slows then drop the carbs.

    Look into K-rala or better yet Glucophase XR (designer supps) to clear blood sugar quickly if it is really a huge concern of yours.

    good product!!!

    Very effective

    JB recommends 10g or less of carbs per meal with fats. However, if it is fibrous carbs from veggies there is nothing to worry about IMO. You can chow down 4-500g easy if you wish, as it is so low GI and easily 50-70% fiber. Watch out for veg with high sugar content though - have those in moderatio in P/F meals. This includes peas, tomato, red bell pepper, carrots etc. Stuff like broc/caul. is fine. Also the tomato's (canned I assume) are fine and often very negligible in terms of carb content, but don't go having 2 cans per meal and also make sure you get a decent brand with no added preservatives, salt, sugar, thickeners etc.
