That urge can be very tough! I tend to go through stages - sometimes it seems impossible to resist, and sometimes it's just gone and I'm not even tempted... Switching back to not being tempted is not easy though...

I don't know any specific apps for low carb diets as such, but I use MyFitnessPal and in there you can set your goals for your macronutrients, so you could set the carbs as low as you want.

thanks you for your quick reply. I allready have this app. So i need something more like a tracker, i think. So i can follow where i go wrong and what i can change!

Then you will have to keep searching :)

I mentioned it because for me personally it works and I can see exactly where I go wrong with MyFitnessPal - the biggest indication that I'm really going wrong is when I start approximate calories and use 'Quick Add' :D but if I enter things correctly then 'Nutrients' and 'Macros' tabs show me what requires tweaking.

The best apps I’ve come across are Carb Manager for tracking and Diet Doctor for recipes and articles

obviously, like me, you have a sweet tooth. I cope by always making up no sugar jelly. A bowl of this will satisfy a sweet tooth. and have just started baking with coconut flour (low carb), and sweetening with stevia, though I do add dried fruit. I find this satisfies my sweet tooth while keeping carbs in check. If I am out and fancy something sweet and am tempted by cakes, I buy a v ery tiny Freddo chocolate. I remind myself it's the sweetness I want, not necessarily the cake!
