Like some before me, I have diabetes and your explanation, once you said it means different things to different folks, left me wondering what they purpose of the article was.
You go straight, unless there's a curve to the left or right and then you go straight around the curve or are you turning to the left or right? When I give directions like that folks are properly confused, and my directions are of no earthly value. God may understand, experts may understand, but no one is explaining it to us in real language.
This "net carb" concept is very tricky. I do as you say and subtract half of the fiber. Better safe than sorry...
interesting--and I must remember this!
I learned many things from your article
interesting--Now to remember it!
Thanks for sharing

So now I am really confused.
Hmmmm, subtracting only have the fiber grams? Are you trying to say that the other half are digestible? My husband has diabetes. The current governmet food chart would kill my husband. We subtract all the fiber carbs, which would make sense, since NONE of them are acutally digested and he never eats more than 25% of the total meal in calories in carbs.
