So, in another keto place especially for people with diabetes, I suggested to a new person with frighteningly high BG’s that avocados were a good thing to eat. An admin said they were too high in carbs for that person - and I belatedly remembered that that place counts total carbs.
Here in the U.K., food labels and nutrition databases automatically subtract fibre. More importantly… fibre is not absorbed, or turned into glucose, and does not raise either BG or insulin. So, I think counting total carbs is… pointless. Especially if it means you can’t eat avocados.
In the other place, I decided not to push it… it’s the kind of place where these are the rules, obey them! So, I’ve brought it over here, where we can have a respectful, science-based discussion.
So, hit me with it. Does fibre raise BG, or cause an insulin response, or inhibit ketosis?
