There is plenty of fiber in leafy greens and most vegetables to keep things moving. The fiber in "healthy" whole grains may possibly slow the absorption of the starch if you eat the grain entire, but not if it is ground into flour or meal. But it will be absorbed sooner or later to the detriment of our blood sugar. We don't need starch, whole grain or not.

What's your take on fiber guys?
Salad, Salad, and more salad! Keeps the pipes moving....if not eat some extra fat via butter or heavy cream....that added fat will grease the pipes.... all together, it works...

I do not buy the fiber story any more than I now buy the Good Carb/ Bad Carb talk...or the Good Fat/ Bad Fat...it is all marketing hype!

Use you meter and your own body to tell you what works!

I don't buy the fiber hype either . . . and whatever the dietitians/nutritionists/CDEs preach is what they've learned in books, which books are WRONG. Common sense tells us the best way to control our high blood sugar is to prevent it going high to begin with, so we aren't in this to 'slow the glucose absorption' - we're in this to PREVENT it. Whatever we can do to prevent it means so much less effort & grief in getting it back down.

Aren't most fiber sources like whole grains also providing additional carbs? The fiber itself may not be converted to glucose, but now the carbs ingested has increased. Counter intuitive in my opinion. In my case fiber must not be too essential being as I have had maybe two days in 3 1/2 years of LCHF of getting slightly constipated. I think the fat content and hydration takes care of those issues.

That's part of the reason for the "net carbs" hocus pocus.

Default LC Bread

I love this bread & its low carb, please see link below
It is expensive, so I freeze the other loaves. They are vaccuumed packed & also placed in another bag to ensure freshness. It tastes like rye bread. Yummy

Well drats! Wish they would export it to US Costcos as well. Looks interesting. On my next Canadian road trip, at least I know what to get where
