I love this diet but it's a lot to keep track of. I ended up buying the Slow Carb Diet Tools & Recipes app for my iPhone. There is nothing like having the rules, foods and a bunch of recipes in your pocket. I also think there is a lot to be said for the accountability that comes with taking pictures of every thing I eat. https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/slow-carb-diet-tools/id545726155?mt=8
