Question about net carbs...
I am following Dr Clarks, High Protein Diet where carbs are restricted to 40 carbs a day. So far, it's going really well, I feel great and can tell the weight is coming off
Yesterday, I didn't have time to make lunch so I bought a pack of Atkins daybreak bars to pop in my bag as I was going out. On the pack, it said 3 grams net carbs per bar. Great! But when I came to log the details on my tracker, the carbs came in at a whopping 10 carbs! I looked into this further and can see that there is a difference in whether you count net carbs as opposed to the carbs you see on the nutritional information. I am confused now as to which carbs I need to pay attention to. Those bars were yummy and filling but I won't be eating them if they are costing me 10 carbs!
