Nice article and very inspirational,
Fibre, exercise, especially 7 minutes daily activities help to reduce the symptoms Report
I follow the ketogenics food plan. I therefore count net carbs. The article was very informative. Report
Very interesting. Learned something. I do look at net carbs but only consider the total carbohydrates minus dietary fiber in following a low carb plan. Report
"net carbs" is a SP nutritional "add" Report
It should be fairly simple for the SP nutrition tracker to reflect this, shouldn’t it? Fibre is a separate listing already, so perhaps the “carbs” column might be “net carbs”? Report
Good to know! Report
Thanks for this excellent need-to-know information! Report
Thanks for the information. Report
Good article, but now I'm a little more confused and will bring this up when I see my nutritionist later this week I was taught to subtract the ENTIRE amount of dietary fiber from the total carb amount to get the net carb amount. If it truly is only HALF then I've been doing it wrong for the last several weeks. My readings are normal, so I must be doing something right, but all of the conflicting information that I've gotten since I got diagnosed in February is frustrating. Report
Why only half ?? Report
Very informative, thank you. I had never heard of the 5 g and divide by 2 rule. Report
Fiber , fiber , fiber. Report
When we had a diabetes class they mentioned the above 5 grams of fiber dividing it by 2. I've been doing that for quite some time now. Good article! Report
Keep,those carbs down. Protein up, fiber up. Report
Informative article!
