Hi, I'm new to this forum. I've decided to try a semi-low carb diet this time around because Atkins destroys my digestion. So I'm wondering, when you count carbs, do you still subtract the fiber from the total carb count to find the net carbs that you eat?
(Hope that's true, because I'm on a very high fiber eating plan).
I don't, but I just started carb cycling and am still working out what works for me. On low-carb days, I eat .6 x my body weight which is about 100 grams of carbs. That's so much higher than the 20 per day in the induction phase of Atkins that I chose against doing net carbs.
Thanks for the reply. I think I've tried it all over the years; strict Atkins was successful weight-wise, but I hated the intestinal side effects. These more moderate plans should work, too, even if they take longer.
I'd love to hear from other people, too, concerning how to count grams of fiber.

I count them all...but I allow myself 50g per day while aiming for as little as possible. Yesterday I estimated my carb count at around 15 (est high). My bacon has a bit, I had some almonds, and spinach.
