oh and do we stay under 40 total or net carbs per day? if net, how do i calculate? thanks!!
I haven't tried the Atkins bars, but I was looking at some yesterday. The ones I saw had only 10 grams of protein so I would probably also have half of a whey protein isolate shake with that.
I have heard that we should stay under 30 net carbs and under 40 total carbs. You calculate by subtracting grams of fiber from the total carb grams. Some people also subtract sugar alcohols, but this can be self defeating since a lot of sugar alcohols raise your blood sugar levels.
