    When Mark says stay below 150 grams a day, is this for Sugar or all carbs?

    It's not easy at all to understand for people who are not from the US, because in most other countries total carbs are not listed in the nutritional facts ... instead net carbs are listed. But yes, Mark's figures apply to total carbs (net carbs + fiber).

    I had no idea that other countries account for fiber in the total carbs. That would be confusing. I count total carbs but sometimes if I want to justify a high carb treat or something I say "well, if you take out the grams of fiber in these dates then it's not THAT bad...."hehe.

    And some of of us around here keep our total carbs a lot lower than that.
