Subtracting fiber from carbs?


I recall reading that when a meal has more than 5g of fiber, then those grams should be subtracted from carbohydrates.

So since Soylent has 9g of fiber per serving, is anyone subtracting that from the 84g of carbs per serving? This would mean that a full day of Soylent has 225g of net carbs (rather than 252g).

Is this right?

(I’m trying to tinker with my official Soylent a bit to make it work for my P90X3 nutrition plan).


I haven’t heard of this before so I did some reading. It sounds like you can, but only people who worry about carbohydrates seem to care to do it.
