    Net Carbs Vs. Carbs

    Shop Now
    I see a lot of stuff today about net carbs - which I believe is the carbs less the grams of fiber. Is this what we should be considering for carb limitations---or should we go straight to the carbs on the label???

    I count Total carbs. Not to say I don't try to get higher-fiber versions of the carbs I do eat - veg, fruit, flax, etc, but I count total for my weight-loss plan.

    The Primal Blueprint is based on total carbs, not net.

    I usually stick to protein and fat and let the carbs duke it out among themselves.
