calculator How are Net Carbs Calculated?


  • 1 oz Cream Cheese
  • 1 large Egg
  • 2 Tbsp Vanilla Whey Protein
  • 0.25 tsp Baking Powder (Sodium Aluminum Sulfate, Double Acting)
  • 0.125 tsp Nutmeg (Ground)
  • 0.25 cup Blueberries


  1. Place cream cheese in a microwave safe mug.  Heat for 10-15 seconds (enough to warm the cream cheese but not to fully melt it).
  2. Add the egg and whisk it with the cream cheese.
  3. Add the whey protein powder (use a protein powder that has 1g NC or less per serving, one serving is about 1 oz), baking powder, and nutmeg; whisk to combine.  Add the blueberries mixing to combine.  Heat the mug in the microwave for 1 min and 20 seconds (the blueberries need additional time to cook since they contain so much moisture.  Microwave times vary so you may need to increase the time by 10-20 seconds if it does not cook through.  Remove muffin by turning over onto a plate.  Run a knife around the inside of the mug to more easily release it.

How to Calculate Net Carbs

In the Atkins Nutritional Approach®, the Net Atkins Count™ is calculated by subtracting the number of grams of fibre and sugar alcohols (also known as polyols) from the total grams of carbohydrates in whole foods. This reflects the idea that fibre and sugar alcohols minimally impacts blood sugar levels at the doses present in the products.
