Re: [IP] carb counting



Roz,
I teach patients to subtract the fiber from total gms of carb, only if it
is significant. "Significant" to me, is if it is 5gm of fiber or more. The
5 gm is arbitrary.  My feeling is that most people don't eat that many high
fiber foods, so it is usually not a huge issue.
However, the pumpers on this list are not my typical patients. Hope this
helps.
