Good carbs, bad carbs, high carbs, low carbs. All this carb stuff can be a little overwhelming, but Carbonaut is determined to help you sift through the information and land directly on what’s relevant to you and your good health.
If your goal is to live a low carb lifestyle, then it’s all about the net carbs, not total carbs. Too many carbohydrates can prevent your body from performing optimally and maintaining a healthy microbiome1. Since fiber is a carbohydrate your body can’t digest, it doesn’t count toward the amount of carbs it takes to keep your body in this optimal state.

Now that you understand the why, let’s talk about the how.
Remember: net carbs are the only carbs that matter, and there’s a simple calculation we can use to find out exactly what we’re putting into our bodies. Net carbs are the total carbs, minus the fiber. When looking at a nutrition label, simply find the total grams of carbohydrates and then subtract the fiber. (If there’s any sugar alcohols in the ingredients, you can subtract those, too.)
The number you are left with is your total net carbs—not exactly rocket science!
For example, Carbonaut hot dog buns have 15 grams of carbs and 13 grams of fiber. That’s 2 grams of net carbs.
See? Easy enough to radio home about. Greatest thing since sliced bread.
