Does anyone count the fiber against the carbohydrate count in what they’re eating? I read online on one site that if the fiber per serving was 5 or over, I could take ½ the fiber count off the carbohydrate count. Other places have said one can subtract all the fiber count off the carbohydrate count. Has anyone done this?

I always subtract the whole fiber content from the carbs.

Is that what your nutritionist said to do? Just wondering if that is something they are going to tell me to do at this 'class' next Friday.

Thanks!

^ I don't have a nutritionist. My mom has diabetes, and that is what she does so I do it too.

I never really counted fiber.. I just knew what I could eat and what I couldn't eat.. I also took a prenatal vitamin with probotics in it and that kept me vary regular.. Never had problems in that department..

The nutritionist told me to do that, but I don't anyway because it doesn't seem to make a difference for me. My body seems to process all carbs equally. :/
