The general rule:

8g or less NET carbs = unrestricted

9g to about 15g NET carbs = restricted

more than 15g NET carbs = VERY restricted (limit to once or twice a week).

Your phase 1 sheet should have a list of the restricted IP products right on it.

I'm confused, if over 15g is severely resiricted why do the IP coaches let you eat the bars as a daily restricted item? It even has it listed on the sheet?

Thanks,
D.

The restricted guidelines are based on NET carbs (total carbs minus the dietary fiber). The one IP product that is super restricted is the Spaghetti Bolognese, which has 17g net carbs. Here are a few examples of the bars:

Caramel Nut bar - 15g carbs - 1g dietary fiber = 14g net carbs
Peanut Butter Crunch bar - 14g carbs - 3g dietary fiber = 11g net carbs
Cranberry-Granata bar - 17g carbs - 3g dietary fiber = 14g net carbs
Double Chocolate Bar - 17g carbs - 2g dietary fiber = 15g net carbs
Chocolate Raspberry Crunch bar - 15g carbs - 2g dietary fiber = 13g net carbs

If you are new to IP it is greatly suggested you read the Stickies at the top. This would answer 98% of your questions. I'm just saying. :)
