A “Treat” for those on Step 1! I’ve created an “Extra” for Metabolism Miracle offering a Brand Name list of 5 gram “Counter Carbs”….115 of them!

Years ago, when I developed The Metabolism Miracle, there were very few 5 gram “Counter” carbs available at the local supermarket.  Most people followed Step 1 consuming neutral foods only (lean protein, heart healthy fat, neutral veggies).  Time passed and some lower carb foods appeared on the scene that legitimately fulfilled the net carb grams < 5 grams.   But, as you know, they were few and far between.

I spent a great deal of time scouring the supermarket chains to find over 115 Brand Name products that fit the requirement of the 5 gram “Counter” and put them in one list now available at : http://themetabolismmiracle.com/#/extras/4556897363.

A reminder about 5 gram Counter carbs on Steps 1, 2, 3.

Step 1:  You may have neutral foods as desired at any time on Step 1.  These include the foods in the neutral lists and arrow sheet; lean protein, heart healthy fat, neutral veggies, and foods with < 1 gram net carb (in that serving size).  In addition, you have the option to add a 5 gram “Counter” carb at your breakfast, lunch, dinner, bedtime, and in the middle of the night if you are awake.  The “Extra” list will give you 115 possibilities for this 5 gram “Counter” carb.

Steps 2 and 3:  As in Step 1, you may have neutral foods as desired.  You MUST have 11-20 grams net carb at meals, bedtime, and between meals that exceed 5 hours.  If you use a 5 gram “Counter” carb, you must incorporate it into your 11-20 gram allotment….don’t take it in addition to your 11-20 gram allotment.

    I am trying to get a copy of the arrow sheet. I have bought nearly all of the books and just received the latest, but my copier does not like the copy in the book, maybe because of the crease(?). I am wondering if you can email me a copy, as each link I follow, for the chart, says it is a blank page.

    Thank you !
