Definitely net. Too much slop with total, you can't tell what you actually have, and I'm currently being very tight. I'd miss a lot of veggies if I tried to stay under 20 total.

I've been doing total for the pregnancy, but I plan to go very LC after the baby and I intend to eat 0-15 net carbs/day.

Net carbs for me. I am trying to stay around 30-40 daily.

Never give up or look back,

I subtract fiber and sometimes sugar alcohols.

I do net carbs, however eat such small amounts of any sugar alcohols, it's immaterial.

Most of the carbs come from fruits & veggies, so deduct the fiber from them.

Net carbs for the most part. (Maltodextrin is not a fiber according to my body, no matter what the labels say.) I'm still undecided as to the fiber question, but my body responds well to green vegetables, chia seeds, flax meal, konyakku, and some quantity of low-sugar fruits, so I've chosen the option that allows me to eat those.

I go by net carbs. I have 20 net carbs a day which works out to around 30 carbs a day.

I have been eating up to 100 g of total carbs a day. I know different things work for different people but I was just wondering for those of you on a low carb diet do you go by total carbs or net carbs?
