    I am doing low carb, and was wondering what I need to be looking for on food labels.

    Is it total carbs, or carbs which sugars that I am meant to be checking?


    Thanks in advance :D

    Hello, here in the UK the net carbs are worked out for us on the labels. So when you see carbs that is what you count, ignore the sugars & fibre.
    So just count the carbs & nothing else. Easy isn't it! :D

    Good luck
