Yes ( CHO - Fiber = net CHOs )
Are you just about to start the diet or have you already started?
I love the AD

I just started on monday, so i really dont know what to think of it yet. I hear the first week is the toughest, but its not going to badly so far.. we will see come friday lol.
Yesterday my total carbs was 34 but that wasnt minus the fiber so im sure it was around the early 20's..

I didnt think the first week was that bad either, i went 12 days before my first refeed. The 2nd week I was extremely weak in the gym but now that im more fat adapted Im feeling very strong again.

Good sources of fiber: green vegetables, psyllium husk supplements--watch the labels though because things like Metamucil have hidden carbos, milled flax seed, low carb tortillas, nuts, and peanut butter. I'm sure there are many many more good sources of fiber that I can't think of right now but those are all the sources that I have gotten fiber from today, lol.

Fiber One cereal is an excellent source for fiber. 14g of fiber in 1 serving. Doesn't taste half bad either.

cereal and AD don't mix, other than on carb load days. just 1/2 a cup of fiber one would be 10 net carbs. It would be much smarter to just eat fibrous green veggies with every meal, and supplement with some flax meal or something.
You are right though, that is a ton of fiber.

anyway stick with the diet man. im only in week two and im loving it. i can tell a diference from when i started(muscle mass wise and body fat) aka pants are looser and shirt is tighter lol. strenth is back up my second week too. i did the 5 day on 2 day refeed. my first week was horrible. headaches that didnt go away almost every day. completely gone now

Awesome man, good to hear your liking it as well! Its kinda like an experiment at first, Im just getting through my first week and looking forward on indulging in some carbs this weekend.
I cant wait to hit the gym after a big carb load weekend, i hear the pumps are unreal.

Mission low carb tortillas (the small ones) have 12g of carbs - 7g of fiber = 4g of carbs per tortilla and they taste bomb!

now, lyle mcdonald wrote about carb intake recently, and stated 50 is about the number where you will stay in ketosis. Its lengthy, but its some good information.

I have been tweaking things trying to figure out whats going wrong. I'll be getting blood lipids soon, in fact calling my doctor in 5 minutes. I'll definitely update with at least that.
I'm patient, so you won't see me give up any time soon. To be honest with myself, I probably just have to watch the beer consumption on the weekends, and the weight would probably come off.

Good to hear your still trucking along Johnyq
I actually started a new log and i've been constantly tweaking my diet, I feel like im getting the results i've been looking for ( finally )
I need to watch my beer consumption as well bro, I went out last night but only had 2 beers! Thats a good thing for me as self control when it comes to booze is something new for me

There is a ton of science behind this diet I don't understand yet. I think I'm going to order the ultimate diet 2.0 and see what mcdonald has to say in there.
JDF, I'll pop in on your log. Beer is good, just gotta keep it reasonable!

I always thought i counted total carbs..lol Damn.
I gotta say i been at 2700 cals the last 2 weeks and i am not dropping any/much bf.. Usually on a clean 40/40/20 split at 2700-2900cals i drop an easy 2lbs a week..lol
Which to me is weird, because at 4k cals i wasn't gaining fat as rapidly as i would eating even 3500cals with carbs.

yea man. my first carb up didnt produce pumps. but the second carb up the next week :bb2: my GOD. lol. i just got back from back day and my biceps and forearms were PUMPED. i could hardly STEER my car on the way home. lol. so painful during some sets i had to stop. but then again im finishing up my mass fx that i stopped. im on day like 5 out of 10 but could have had something to do with it. i dont remember my pumps being THAT bad before.
