    Providing you count all the carbs in your day and keep them under 20 you'll be OK, having said that you should be getting the majority of your carbs from green leafy veggies love.

    Generally on induction I kept away from all pre prepared and processed foods.

    Hi Sis,

    Dont panic! if ever you see the words polyos (or something like that) you minus that figure from the total carbs. For your bar, the net carbs are 8.5 and polyos are 6.4 so the carbs you intake will be 2.1 (which is what it says on the front of the bar).

    Yes, the count on the front of the bars is net carbs. The polyols (sugar alcohols, subsitutes for real sugar) and fibre need to be subtracted from the total. If it says 3g nc on the front, then it is 3g net carbs.

    As jim says processed foods are really best avoided during Induction and you must get your veggies in for health's sake.

    The bars stall some people so if losses slow or stop try cutting them down or even out.
