Re: [IP] carb counting

In a message dated 99-02-19 19:43:59 EST, you write:

<<  Four slices of the bread are 63.4 Gm Carb and two eggs are 1.2
 Gm carb (according to Corrine Netzer's "Complete Book of Food Counts")
 totals 64.6 Gm Carbs.  I bolused 4, and was hypo an hour later.  Why?
 1) I should have subtracted 9.4 Gm fiber for the 4 slices bread. >>

My dietitian told me if there is more than 5 g fiber, to subtract the fiber
from the carbs.
