How Do You Count Carbs On A Ketogenic Diet?

If you are using the Keto Zone Diet for weight loss then you are probably paying a lot of attention to how many carbohydrates you are consuming. You are likely already aware of the myriad of benefits of a ketogenic. They include weight loss, improved energy, and enhanced cognitive performance. However, in order to reap the benefits, you need to keep your daily consumption of carbs below 20 grams per day, especially for the first 2-4 weeks. Keto Macros The macronutrient ratios (macros) of daily caloric intake for a successful ketogenic diet look like this: High healthy fat intake at 60%-80% of calories. Moderate clean protein intake at 15%-35% of calories. Low carbohydrate intake at 0%-5% of calories Many people initially scoff at these ratios as ridiculous or even impossible. The fact is, however, that it is not only possible, but once the body is adapted it is actually incredibly easy to maintain. This is because once the body has adapted to using ketones (fat) for fuel instead of glucose (sugar), hunger diminishes dramatically and cravings virtually disappear. But first, you must make it through the keto adaptation phase. Keto Adaptation The human body is designed to efficiently Continue reading >>

    Hi typhoon34,
    At this time, there is not a way to keep track of net carbs within our program. We will definitely consider adding this feature for a future update. For now, you should be able to track your daily total carbs and fiber. You can then keep track of your net carbs (total carbs – fiber) via the “notes” section.
    To record a note in our iPhone app, scroll to the bottom of the “Diary” page and tap “Notes.” In our other mobile apps, on the page that appears after you click the Add to Diary button (with the meal names listed), scroll down and you’ll see a row labeled “Food Notes”. Tap on it, and you can record whatever notes you’d like. Those notes will then appear in your diary.
    Food notes are available on our website at the bottom of the food diary page.
    To view all your nutrient totals for the day, including carbs, just go to the main menu or “More” page, and then to the nutrient or nutritional section. In that area you can view a daily or weekly option, as well as small buttons in the highlighted area to view your nutrients in different ways.
    Our Premium service also offers the ability to change the information being displayed in your dashboard, at the top of the Home screen. One of the options is our “Low Carb” preset, which displays your Carbohydrates, Fiber, and Sugar, along with your Calories Remaining. You would then simply have to view the Home screen to be able to quickly calculate your Net Carbs, by subtracting your Fiber from your total Carbs.
    Also if you like, you can set your own nutritional goals for carbs, calories, fat, and any other nutrient that we track.
    Hope this helps! We wish you the best of luck in meeting and maintaining all your fitness goals!
    Best,

    I am new to both keto and myfitnesspal. I recently paid for the premium account so that I could have access to macronutrient tracking. I am very pleased so far, but I have encountered the same issue that the original poster detailed: I have customized the app to track fiber and to set my own goals, but fiber is not being subracted by the app from the carbs (to set net carbs). As a result, I have to keep clicking back and forth on my phone when trying to figure out what I can eat (since the app shows that I am over my carb limit but am not). I could see adding this as a premium feature, under macro tracking -- something specifically for low carb diets. Please, please add this feature soon.
