How are Net Carbs Calculated?


  • 16 oz Corned Beef Brisket (Cured)
  • 2 cup Turnips (with Salt, Frozen, Drained, Cooked, Boiled)
  • 0.5 cup chopped Onions
  • 0.5 cup Heavy Cream
  • 3 tbsp Canola Vegetable Oil

  1. Toss cubed beef and turnips together in a bowl. Add onion and heavy cream and stir to combine.
  2. Heat oil in a heavy nonstick skillet over medium-low heat 1 minute. Add beef-turnip mixture and cook until a crust forms, about 10 minutes. 
  3. Turn hash and brown other side, about 10 minutes more. Serve with a poached egg, if desired (adds .4g NC to each serving).

How to Calculate Net Carbs

In order to calculate Net Carbs of any whole food item, it's a simple calculation based on the Nutrition Facts panel:

Total Carbohydrates - (Minus) Dietary Fiber = (Equals) Net Carbs

For low carb products sweetened with sugar alcohols (ie: glycerin, maltitol, etc), refer to the Nutrition Facts panel of the product:

Total Carbohydrates - (Minus) Dietary Fiber - (Minus) Sugar alcohol = Net carbs

This reflects the fact that Dietary Fiber doesn't impact blood sugar levels. Sugar alcohols also have a negligible impact on blood sugar, they too are subtracted from total carbs to yield the Net Carb count.
