    The keto diet is high fat and high protein with extremely low carb. Usually only 20g per day.

    Calorie for calorie, it doesn't make any difference for body composition. Beyond it, you may find that one diet or the other will make you feel more satiated.

    I just started a keto plan and have also doing it for my husband and daughter. My question is MyFitnessPal does not seem to take the carbs and subtract the fibre to get net carbs. I use the foods already calculated on this app . Do you have any suggestions for me?

    Switch out one of your tracked columns in your diary for fiber (I swapped out sugar and track fiber instead) and then you can just subtract the fiber from your carbs. There's also a lot of items in the database that are already net carbs (double check them because, like everything else in the database, there are some erroneous entries.

    Dear Posters,

    Please focus on the questions presented by the OP. If a debate arises feel free to start a new debate thread about it. I think most of you have been around long enough you are quite aware of how to start a thread and post a link to it.

    Since this seems to be a large problem this weekend, next time I see it hijacking warnings will roll out.

    Thanks,

    I've read that there is an add on that you can get to track net carbs with MFP. I haven't used it, but if you do a search of the forums, you should be able to find it.

    MFP does not calculate net carbs. You can set your diary to show carbs and fiber and subtract yourself. That's the best method at this point. If you have more questions please feel free to start your own thread on one of the help boards. If your questions are tagged onto and existing thread they don't always get answered thoroughly.
