      I gotta disagree a little on that one... Processed crap is bad for everyone, not just for fat people.

        Yes, I know that. Anyone who has read the book and reads here should know that.

        My "for those trying to lose weight" pertains to the OP who posted a thread about not losing weight. I didn't insinuate or refer to anyone being fat.

        Point blank, there is not one package of meat in my fridge or freezer that has ANY fiber in it (not that I even have to look when I buy it, I just happened to go check) and none of my veggies are labeled either.

          I buy flax meal (it does have a label, but it is just ground flax seeds) and my mom says it is zero net carbs, but I don't count that way. It sounds to me like you could fool yourself about it pretty easily. The guidelines given in the PB don't say anything about net carbs, and I am following those guidelines and ending up with about 80-90g of carbs a day. I think it might be easy to edge up over the 150g area where most people gain weight if you used net carbs instead of "gross" carbs.
