    UD 2.0 and 'net' carbs.


    hey guys, im running UD 2.0 and along the way i found these nice tortillas that have 18g carbs, and of those 18, 11g are fiber.

    do i need to count fiber carbs on this diet? do i still absorb the energy, even if i dont digest the fiber completely?

    the reason i ask is, if i eat 4 tortillas a day, thats 72g carbs! or, 28g. thats a huge difference!

    opinions?
    For me, the action IS the juice.

    I dont think you will absorb much of the carbs but it will be beneficial because it sucks some of the fats and prevents them from being absorbed. A lot of fiber will also make the foods travel faster and the carbs in the foods might not be fully absorbed by your body..

    i finally decided i don't buy the whole concept of 'net' carbs. its like sugar alcohol. its a racket.

    im just going to lose regular wheat bread with 10g carb a serving. eat 3 of those a day. thats 30 carbs and no guesswork or trial and error

    until 20-30g of carbs a day the body can do Ketosis but every person is different like you say trial and error bud

    Good Luck

    Sugar alcohols are a racket for sure, but you can't compare that to fiber.

    You should subtract the fiber from your carb total.

    If you look in the article's section on lyle's forum he explicitly says to subtract fiber content from your carb count to arrive at a net carb amount... And he also talks about sugar alcohols as well, these you do account for in your carb total... but as lyle suggests, you are just better off staying away from them in general.

    All in all though, no need to worry about the fiber.
