1 cup = like 7g of carbs and if im not mistaken its just fiber isnt it?

so yeah, 1 cup is A LOT

just eat up, not a problem if u ask me

per 85 grams bout half a head of romaine lettuce.. there are 3 grams of carbs.. how much lettuce do you usually consume.. for salads i usually have 1.5 to 2 heads so thats about 10-12 grams of carbs.. very un impressive considering the volume. the carbs are mostly natural sugar though so its pretty high glycemic i guess... just dont worry bout it.. lol
