    That's keto specific. You'll need to do your own math.

    Deduct fiber from your total carbs and you will have the net carbs. Easy!
    For your information, many people have been requesting this features for many, many years. It is not going to happen.

    In the UK, and many other countries, the line to keep track of net carbs is 'carbs'. Fibre is already subtracted.

    This is just one of the reasons why MFP probably aren't going to add a 'net carbs' feature. How would they know which entries to subtract the fibre from?

    This.

    And I really don't understand why subtracting fiber (for those of us in the US and Canada) is hard. I wanted to see fiber so liked seeing total carbs and fiber and doing the (1st grade at most) math when I was doing keto.

    In addition to what was already said, net carbs aren't required on US labels.

    You can go to https://www.myfitnesspal.com/account/diary_settings swap something out for Fiber, put that next to Carbs, and subtract.
