So I look at my interactive meal plan for the day, And i notice that in my food exchanges- My starches are already at 9 compared to the (5-7). I am only at 1173 calories and am under the 1200 goal. The starch is probably more since the interactive plan does not update added foods into the food exchanges. I am eating all jenny foods for the day, banana as my fruit serving (half in the morning/half snack) and am replacing my anytime bar with a dannon yogurt (80 cal-light and fit).

Should I ignore the high starch exchange and eat my foods and reach the caloric goal? Or should i cut something out?

The food exchange system gets really confusing since mostly all jenny foods are high in starch.

Please help!

double check with your JCC but I would suggest just sticking with eating what's on your meal plan. Most likely on another day, it will be under the 5-7 range.
