How we calculate the Net Atkins Count™

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