Haven't gotten my book yet, but wanted to try to start implementing the concepts and I was wondering about nuts. Since almonds and other nuts are considered fats, do the net carbs in the almonds count toward the 10 grams of total net carbs? I was looking at the nutrition information on my bag of almonds and it says there are 8 grams of carbs and 5 grams of fat, leaving a net carb total of 3. Do I count the 3 net carbs toward my 10 gram limit? Or, since nuts are an "S" food, are the 3 grams "free", so to speak? Thanks!

Unless I am misreading your post, I think that you can only calculate net carbs from Total carbs minus FIBER, not using fat grams, so those almonds would still be 8 g carbs Welcome to THM!

Thank you! You're totally right about the calculations with carbs and fiber. The almonds do have 5 grams of fiber, but I mistakenly typed it in as fat. So that would still leave me with 3 grams of net carbs. Would these 3 carbs count toward the 10 carb limit? There are a total of 10 grams of fat in a serving of almonds.

alicat825: caddaway, I haven't been officially diagnosed but my nutritionist says I have a good chance of having it. THM really helps with it, as long as you balance the S, E, and FP meals. You can't go overboard with any of them

alicat825: choose which type of meals you are going to eat for each meal. Example: I eat E in the morning, FP snacks, S for lunch, and S for dinner

alicat825: caddaway, if you notice that your energy levels drop dramatically, try a crossover snack here and there. You will have to find the right balance for you.

tiffany0726: What ingredients do I need to make my own Truvia? I looked at the Homemade Truvia thread, but they used Nustevia I believe BEFORE they changed the formulation. So now that the formulation is different, what do you suggest I use?

steffanie3: I would get the Now Better Stevia from the sounds of things it is the most popular, hopefully in a short time Serene and Pearl's erythritol and stevia will be available, they are working hard on it
Mar 12, 2014 16:03:53 GMT -5
steffanie3: If you need erythritol now, that brand looks fine, I have only used Smart Sweet because I can get it through a company called Azure that delivers to my area.

rnjulih: What brand of Stevia would you recommend now to mix with the Erythritol?
