Net Carbs

On Atkins, counting carbs is key to the implementation of the plan.

Carbohydrates are counted as "Net Carbs" which means that you figure out the amount of carbohydrates and the amount of fiber present in your food item.

You then subtract the fiber count from the total carb count, and this gives you your net carb amount. For instance:

1 cup of broccoli = 6 carbs total. But 4 of those carbs are from fiber, so the net carb count would be 2 carbohydrates, instead of 6.
Always do your best. What you plant now, you will harvest later.
