Had an endo apt yesterday and met with a nutritionist for the first time. I nearly fell off my chair when she said not to subtract fiber from the carb counts. I said, "But, but, but" and she said, "Not for T1s." (I guess that means T2s can subtract fiber. I don't know.) I sputtered some more and she said, "How has subtracting fiber worked for you?" Well, I thought about those beans chilis and black bean side dishes Clara sometimes has and the high results afterwards and had to say, "Not really that great."
I'm sure I read to subtract the fiber in (I think) Pumping Insulin. Anyone else heard about this one way or the other?
