According to Diet Doctor, there are three levels of low carb when following a low carb diet.
- Strict Low Carb (Less than 20g carbs per day)
- Moderate Low Carb (20-50g carbs per day)
- Liberal Low Carb (50-100g carbs per day)
These figures refer to “net carbs”, which are the grams of carbs minus fibre content. Fibre is a carbohydrate and is included in the carb count but, because fibre is indigestible, it does not raise your blood sugar or trigger an insulin response in the same way “available carbs” do.
