Tracking Net Carbs – Great My Fitness Pal Hack

Found a simple hack that allows My Fitness Pal to calculate net carbs for me. So this app lives another day!

Found a simple hack that allows My Fitness Pal to calculate net carbs for me. So this app lives another day!

There are two ways to track carbs — count the total carbs or net carbs (fiber subtracted from carbs). Neither is right or wrong. It’s just a personal preference. I started this journey counting net carbs. Lately I tried counting total carbs but I’m switching back to net carbs.

My biggest hang up is tracking. The easiest food tracker app is My Fitness Pal. But like most food diaries it’s too focused on calorie counting and favors the low-fat diet.  Both are useless when you go low carb.

Thankfully Lynn at the Traveling Low Carb blog has a great ‘keto hack’ for My Fitness Pal. The hack allows the diary to track net carbs for you.  It took me less than 2 minutes to install.  Easy peasy!

Oh, and be sure to check out Lynn’s blog too. It has great trips for those of you who travel or eat out a lot.
