So I was having a hard time figuring out why my weightloss had totally stalled...

I hadn't lost or gained any in almost 2 months. So I did some research and found out the low-carb spinach & turkey wraps I was eating at work were in fact, not low-carb at all. Just the tortilla wrap was 27 carbs (which was about 90% of what I allow myself each day) and once you add the other ingredients, it was damn near 30 carbs.

Just as a point of reference, the ones I make at home with the actual low-carb tortillas are a total of about 7 carbs.

So I wasn't gaining any weight, but I wasn't losing any either. I stopped eating the wraps at work (which also saved me a fair amount of cash... the cafeteria is quite good, but not cheap) and after about a week of being back on track with my carb count, I've lost 2 pounds!! So I'm feeling pretty good about that.

What's the moral of this story? 1) Never assume anything is safe without doing the math. 2) When things don't go according to plan, there is ALWAYS a reason why. Sometimes, you just have to look harder to find it! (Come to think of it, those can apply to a lot more than just dieting) Posted on Sunday, May 29, 2005 5:07 PM General Interest | Back to top
