Re: [IP] carb counting and fiber

 I am trying to remember the fiber thing when I took education classes. It
seemed to me that if the food had 5 grams of fiber or more you would subtract
the 5 grams from the total carbs thus taking less insulin to whatever your carb
to insulin ratio is.

Subject: [IP] carb counting and fiber

I am counting carbs and need to know ,if there is fiber in something do you
take the fiber carb grams off of what you are counitng. For example if a diet
slice of seven grain bread has a total of 5 grams of carbs, 3 of which are
fiber, do you take insulin for 5 grams or for 2 grams? I would appreciate your
