RE: [IP] carb counting and fiber

I was told in a course I took at the Joslin that you can subtract the 5 up
to 1/2 the total grams of carb. Your example would be

Total		5
Fiber 	3	1/2 total carb so use  2.5
Net carbs	2.5

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 input.
