I count net carbs, I have been successful with it and makes it easy for me. My daughter does total and that works for her. I read labels and try to be clean so I stay away from the bad sugar subs

So, if I just wanted to keep track of total carbs, being a newbie at this how many carbs per day should I start out with to bring me into ketosis. I know it’s different with everyone, but what’s a good starting number to do and work my way up or down with a Keto blood meter.

Gerald Torres

new to low carb life, and (keto-ish way of living), i was good, until i started making keto snacks and keto pancakes, which are loaded with calories, evn though is low on carbs, my question is since i gained 2lbs, im sure is because of new found keto snacks, i am starting to count all macros, even calories, what total carb count should i strive for , if not net carbs, to remain ketogenic-ish, thanks this is all confusing.

Thank you! I love a Keto Bar which says that has only 2g of net carbs HOWEVER it is full of maltitol. I already ate one but I will not eat my second bar anytime soon. Thank you


I'm confused the food package says 10 carbs on the back but on the fron it says 0 net carbs. Why are they aloud to pretend those carbs dont exist. That's what I want to know. What the fuck does "net carbs" means.

Ester Hunter

I just found this channel because I was searching for more information on the topic of seeing better fasting b/g readings and after-meal readings by counting total carbs instead of net carbs. My A1C went down greatly but I have a goal of normal A1C readings in the low 5's. I want to see if I as a diabetic would see the changes that I want to see.

This video is well worth watching more than once. Amazing what you pick up.

Have you tried the slimfast Keto fat bombs peanut butter cups? If so what's your opinion on them?


Absolutely correct on the mail to tall I check my sugar before I eat the product and check my sugar one hour after I eat it and when I have milk to tall it’s acting like pure sugar with the spike
