    Yeah, carbs break down into sugar, and sugar is like an instant fuel for your body so if you can't use it all right then it'll be stored as fat.

    I aim for a fist sized portion of carbs, hope that helps smile

      Your fat is fine, don't stress yourself out too much, just stick to a calorie limit so then you won't be going over.

      Try making your own soups and sticking to unprocessed foods and you'll be fine,  wholemeal pasta, bread and rice is much better for you as it's released much more slowly, thus your body won't freak out like it does for the white stuff.

      You should try to cut down on things like bread though and stick to a fist size portion of carbs per meal.

      Carbs from veg is fine as long as you watch your calories, just watch out for refined carbs, white bread, pasta rice etc.

      If you're really worried you can use something like myfitnesspal to count calories. You only have to be worried about fat, just save sugar for treats and stick to wholemeal carbs, vegetables are fine smile
