Tracking Net carbs - can I eat more carbs then?

If I track net carbs in setting vs total carbs, does that mean I can eat more carbs up to 20 in net daily?

    If you don’t need to why bother ? Lower the carbs the better.

  • My total carbs are at 16 and I have gone over to 16.5 and 17 so was worried about that. 

  • And my net carbs. 7.9 so I was just wondering as I am a newbie. 

  • Its net carbs but that's usually around 15g for day not 7.9g . Are you sure your settings are right 

  • Hi just looked and 8 g of carbs that would mean you could only for example eat 80 g broccoli,  a chicken thigh and some cheese sauce in a whole day which isnt enough so seems  you need to go back to your settings

  • Found this, defo worth a listen

  • Once you are in ketosis for a while,  you can experiment with higher carb intake. It will free you up for more veggies, fruit, and some bread.
