    Not sure what a Melba "snack" is, but a serving of Melba "toast" is one piece in P2 and you are allowed one twice a day. Remember, melbas aren't allowed in P3. They aren't very big and many skip them altogether in P2.
    Think thin thoughts and it will become your experience.

    I am curious about this too - I wasn't able to find melba toast, but I found melba snacks.

    I bought the whole grain ones and the nutritional info is

    1g fat
    11 carbs
    2g fiber
    0g sugar

    What is the calorie count for the melba toast supposed to be?

    Your serving of starch in P2 is in the 20-25 calorie range. I believe each of the Melba snacks is 12 calories, so a serving would be two pieces. I also found some grissini that are 22 calories each.

    Just for the record, no part of this journey is for the weak.

    I use the box serving size of 4 for my melba snacks and either 1 big grissini or 3 of the thin grissini sticks.

    I do the classic Melba toast from Old London. http://www.oldlondonfoods.com/melba_toast.php
    One piece is 20 cals. I have found these at Safeway. I'd probably stay away from the other varieties since they have all sorts of other stuff in them.
    Cheers!
