On Atkins, how do you subtract Carbs..

Is it take the number of Carbs from Fiber or minus the Sugars ??I know minue the sugar alcohol but what if the label says just Sugars? Is that the same?

  • I eat low carb. I dont know if I would call it Atkins, but close enough. I dont eat bread, pasta, fruit, sugar, potatoes..junk foods etc.
    I stick to protein, veggies, cheese, and when I have coffee- splenda and cream. I do use sometimes salad dressing, and bbq sauce but those few carbs dont seem to slow anything down when used in moderation. I would try to count carbs,,but it never worked out for me.. I just try to stick to eating the basics.
    I am down almost 15 pounds in one month, 10 I lost in first 2 weeks. Good luck.

  • Atkins is not an ideal diet, your body needs some healthy carbs.
