  • 6 oz raw (yield after cooking) Bacon
  • 2 lb Brussels Sprouts
  • 0.5 tsp Salt

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.
