Question Net carbs?

So Iím trying to keep carb count under control. At dayís end, my graph shows 187 grams of carbs, and 42 grams of fiber. Can I / should I subtract the fiber from the carbs to get net carbs, or does the program do that for me (I.e.: is the 187 my total carb intake or actual net carb intake)?

The program does not do that for you. Should you subtract the fiber to get the net carbs? I guess it depends on what diet you are following - a lot of low-carb diets use that method. I think the Atkins diet does that, for example.

Thanks, Kathy. I think that by keeping my fiber intake as high as I can, it does reduce net carb intake and helps my sugar count stay ‘in bounds’...
