Is it true that i am able to subtract the amount of fiber to the amount of carb's in my diet?
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.

Good post Johnyq...whats up with your log bro? You still on the AD? Hows the results going?
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
