Net Carbs not an option peidshjt — Mar 18, 2017 01:55PM PDT

Can you please add the feature for net carbs? I've seen countless people asking for it... it really throws off the graph and it adds extra steps that could easily be fixed with a feature for Keto diets. For example, and avocado has TONS of carbs, but they're predominantly fibers... so you could eat an avocado and breakfast and the app already thinks you've almost eaten all of your carbs for the day.

Please add this feature, the workarounds I've found aren't effective and writing in the notes section is not really a satisfactory solution. I love the app, but that's a pretty major oversight for many paying subscribers like me.

Hello peidshjt,

At this time, there is not a way to keep track of net carbs within our program. We will definitely consider adding this feature for a future update. For now, you should be able to track your daily total carbs and fiber. As you mentioned, you can then keep track of your net carbs (total carbs – fiber) via the “notes” section, although there isn’t a way to do it automatically.

I would encourage you to repost this in our MFP Suggestions/Feedback section. This forum is monitored by our product team and staff for ideas and suggestions.

We wish you the best of luck in meeting and maintaining all your fitness goals!
