    Opinion !!!

    Do you use the total carbohydrates present in certain foods or subtract the total carbohydrate minus the amount of fiber it contains? Fiber is carbohydrates that do not become energy within our body, only serve to work in the proper functioning of the gut.

    Total carbs - fiber = net carbs
    If it is in the same food. As in, you can't eat spaghetti, then a bunch of fiber, and subtract the difference. If you look at the nutrition in almonds, you can subtract the fiber in the almonds from the carbs in the almonds
    If that makes sense... Best I can explain it

    I say total carbohydrates in a given food, such as broccoli for example. It contains 7 grams of total carbohydrate, and 3 grams of fiber. What would be 7 subtracted by 3, which would give 4 grams of carbohydrates that could be used as an energetic substrate by our body .. I am asking you why I do not count the liquid carbs ... I count the total carbohydrate in vegetables and grains

    It is the carbohydrate that the body uses as energy ... fiber is carbohydrates but can not be used as energy by the body

    It doesn't really matter if you use total carbs or net carbs. The 30ish grams of fibre in a day is "worth" 120 calories which is not going to make or break a diet.

    All that matters at the end of the day is your consistent on tracking.
