Makes sense. A lot of low carb resources say that you can deduct at least half of sugar alcohols from the carb total.

Sugar alcohols are subtances literally between sugar and alcohol. They're the sugary things that gives 5 Gum its oomph. They affect some people as if they WERE sugar, but some people get no reaction from them at all. This is definitely a case where you would need to test its effect out on yourself.

They're also known to cause some intestinal problems - gas and diarrhea included - especially if you have too much of them at a time.

You definitely don't want to leave anything with sugar alcohol around if you have dogs that might get into them. They're toxic to dogs.

I haven't read the book either, but it probably said "sugar alcohols" rather than sugar.

I haven't read the book, I suspect it is an editing mistake. Maybe send him a question about it. emoticon

I've enjoyed Jimmie now for over a year but now he mainly promotes Paleo and Ketosis, I also search other podcasts of his interviews that interest me on his site and enjoy all the educational information that I receive. I finsihed reading his first book and he said to get the net carbs, he subtracted on the labels sugar and fiber and that was his number. So if an item had 22 carbs and 3 carbs of Fiber and 15 carbs of sugar...........my number would be 4 carbs for that item. Are any of you aware of that from his book? I thought sugar was the main carb. So it is confusing. I have referred back to the book more than once thinking I misread it but that is exactly what it says.

Good idea, Tabby! I particularly like the series of "Ask the Low Carb Experts" They always get into nagging questions that come up after you've eaten this way for awhile.

Just thought I would share info about this free podcast with those who are interested in learning more about the low carb lifestyle. It is hosted by Jimmy Moore, a man who lost nearly 200 pounds by adopting this lifestyle. Anyway, I am finding it very informative and thought it might be helpful to other newbies. It's convenient too, especially if you don't have very much time to read books (took me a month to finish the Atkins book!). I like to listen to the episodes during my commute or at lunchtime.
