Net Carbs=8.96g Carbs=48.91g (final)

UPDATE: I'm happy with the Net Carb number, though the Carb w/fiber number is seems alarming. Blood Sugar has stayed better than ever, my digestive tract doesn't feel funny nearly as often, and I feel stuffed on 500 calories less than my average. I know I could have shaved off a few hundred more and still not been hungry. So far, the low-Carb Pumpernickel bread seems like a winner, with one carb a slice and it has made meals a bit less depressing. Between 5 pieces of the stuff and 1/2 an avocado, the "gross" Carbs seems high but don't think it will be anything other than positive. On the other hand, gaining 6 or whatever pounds over almost three days is alarming, but I've kept meticulous track of my food so it's gotta be water, muscle, or food being processed. I like the nice straight graph of my weighs, but close up it looks pretty erratic from day to day.

KETO vs FASTING for Me: Since I found FS, I've been eating a couple thousand or more calories (50% or less of my RDI--I'm huge) per day with usually VERY low cabs (less than 20, often around 5g and once even 0.13g carbs) for 104 days and I've lost an average of .65lb or 11/16lb every day. I've tried fasting, not always by choice, and for me metabolism shuts down and lose less weight than with 2k+ cals & exercise. I lose a ton of muscle mass calorie reduction, but have been getting stronger with low carb + less than 20+% protein. 2 years ago I had literally no food for 21 days, on only tap water & a few vitamins. I lost less weight than any recent 21 day period. Was too weak to exercise. I have incorporated a bit of fasting recently, 8+ hrs a day after breakfast while I'm doing various exercising (though I do have a couple spoonfuls of coconut &/or MCT oil). Any more, and I can't keep up with regular exercise. Usually try to have a late snack or have some Casein protein to recover before next day. Keeping the muscle seems to be helping a great deal in burning more calories.
