I agree with the first reply, if you're counting calories, you don't have to watch carbs, but what I have done with counting calories is stayed away from "white" stuff (white bread, white pasta, white potatoes etc.) if it's white or made with white, don't bite!
I also try to get mostly veggies in my supper meals. So a serving a meat, half a cup of potatoe/pasta and alot of veggies. I try to not "drink" my calories away. I'll have an orange instead of orange juice. It's more filling that way. Basically, count calories but make the most of those calories. Eat foods that fill you up and less calories and try to eat balanced (a carb and a protein together) to keep you fuller longer.
