So… this is my question about fiber:
How does your body know fiber “doesn’t count” before it gets to the point where it cannot be digested? The first wave of insulin is secreted within minutes or maybe even seconds of the initial intake of food. Your body does not yet know it has taken in fiber.
It made me wonder if maybe the calories shouldn’t count for fiber but maybe it still causes insulin to rise because it is a carbohydrate. Fiber could still be problematic and therefore total grams of carbs is better than net.
Any of you experts like to weigh in on this?
