Start Weight:(07 Oct 15) 192.0 lb
Current Weight:(27 May 16) 187.6 lb
Goal Weight:160.0 lb
following: Atkins
performance: gaining 0.2 lb a week

Female, 66 years old and have followed mostly low carb diets to keep my weight at least somewhat in check over the years. The weight gain occurs when I'm not on a program! However, I'm in "diet fatigue" and just can't stick to a low-carb the way I need to in order to reach my goals. So, even though my profile still says I'm following Atkins, I'm currently using an Alternate Day Dieting approach(started 4-8-16), a hybrid of JUDDD and Dr. Varady's Alternate Day plan. I'm happy to say it's working and doable. I only need to "be good" for 1 day, and the next I can have anything. Amazingly enough that doesn't make me go overboard with meals and treats. Wishing everyone success! UPDATE: As of 5/26/16 I'm switching to the Fast Diet, or 5:2 plan.

Atkins bars...what gives??
That's great! Glad to hear the weight's falling off too - that is the joy of Atkins.

Atkins bars...what gives??
I think this site isn't prepared to deal with the adjustments for sugar alcohols because they're not truly net carbs (total carbs - fiber) but "unavailable" carbs. The nutrition labels do read as 19 carbs and 6 fiber, which would technically be 13 net carbs. Ten of those 13 are sugar alcohols hence the "3 gr net carbs" listing on the front of the product. You are probably better off without the bars, dart451. Many folks have gut problems from eating them, and some report that their weight loss stalls when they regularly eat them.

The little wheel isn't at the bottom, it's at the top. On the first image posted by Scott-M it is at the far left on the blue strip just under the words "My Food Diary." That will get you to a screen where you can elect to show net carbs in your diary. I don't know what is going on with your editing ability.

Atkins bars...what gives??
FS's food tracker only displays gross carbs as a default. You can add net carbs to the display by clicking on the little wheel you see on the left side of the strip at the top of your food diary that shows your total carbs, calories, protein and fat. That "wheel" will open a screen where you can add other values you'd like to track (within limits) like net carbs, sodium, fiber. Once you have added net carbs to your display you will see the bars listing the 3 net carbs.

Vagal nerve inflimation and Palpitations/Racing heart.
Nice work figuring out what was causing your symptoms and finding a solution. It usually turns out that we have to figure these things out for ourselves because the docs will merely say things like "your heart is fine." Good, and you needed to know that so you could take it from there.
