What is about metabolism of carbs in fiber?

Answered on August 19, 2014

Obviously the metabolism of carbs in sugar or grains is not the same as in fiber. Carbs in fiber is metabolised in gut and create fatty acids (?). Does it mean carbs in fiber should not be included in the amount of carbs we take in daily? What is about different vegs for example carrot or broccoli?

A good link! Thanks! I can not remember a food database where carbs have been broken down in Dietary Fiber, Sugars and Sugar Alcohol.

Thanks for our response! I ask just for the time when I want to go low carb. Then I would like to know how many carbs I eat every day.

I would agree with you. But when I am about to eat 100g carbs a day, each calorie does count. 4g carbs in a serving of broccoli is not too much. But when I do exercise and eat enough vegs then it sums up during the day.

The carb calories in fibrous vegetables are too low to be worth counting. I don't include fibrous vegetables in my macronutrient spreadsheet. There are only 30 cals in a serving of broccoli, around 15 calories of digestible carbohydrate.

I use loseit.com to track all my food. It breaks carbs out into fiber and sugar. When I count carbs for restricting them, I exclude the fiber. Its my understanding that these are indigestible. In fact when people recommend fiber for bowel health, there recommendation is based on the fact that the fiber passes undigested into the large intestine and either binds loose stools or bulks up slow stools.

Depends who you talk to. I don't count anything...just eat primarily meat and vegetables. Besides that Primal/Mark Sisson uses total carbs in his carb curve. Jaminets only count starches and fruit if I remember correct. Since carbs are a nonissue in my book it seems silly to try and break them down into fiber and net and so on.
