There is this big debate going on about Net Carbs vs Total Carbs. So, what is the deal? According to Dr. Cywes it is not about losing weight, it is about gaining health. In light of this information, losing weight is a side effect of being healthy. Net carbs can get you in trouble and stall your weight loss.
For me as a diabetic, the fewer carbs I consume the better I do. So for me following a strict keto diet without keto alternatives like keto bread or cake is the way to go.
Now decide for yourself and watch this video by Dr. Cywes as he explains why you should always count total carbs.
