Trying to get the calories up I ate to many carbs. Whole Grain Quinoa , oatmeal, Dave's Blue bread with apple, orange, kale , peanut butter, peanuts, almonds.
Chicken, salad.
So many kinds of questions. NDage has a data base with values but will not add them.

You can! From your start page, click on "Edit Goals" (right under "Track Food"). At the bottom of the new page that opens click on "Add Another Nutrient to Track" and a pop up window will open. Choose "Carbs (for low-carb diet)" from the drop-down menu, enter the values you want and save. The Food Tracker will now track your net carbs automatically in addition to regular carbs.

I agree. I'm doing low carb and I can't just glance at the total to see how I'm doing for the day. Very frustrating.

I would like to see the feature added, as well. That doesn't mean that the carb/fiber count should be removed. Something simply added on.

I would also like to see this feature (or even just the fiber count) added onto the mobile app. Right now it is nearly useless to me because of that. I would still have to log into SP itself to find out my net carbs

I prefer to have my fiber and carbs separate. I want my actual count.

The nutrition tracker currently tracks both carbohydrates and fiber, but for us low-carbers it would be extremely beneficial for it also to track our net carbs.

As it stands we have to find our overall carb count, then subtract our fiber count, which isn't rocket science but is an inconvenient step when you're in a hurry and want to know at a glance how much you've consumed.
