I’m trying to figure out how much of this Vita Flax flaxseed powder to use in my Grow! shakes for the Velocity Diet, and I’m totally confused about how to read it. It basically says the following:
Total Fat: 1g
Total Carb: 3.5g
-Sol. Fiber: 1g
-Ins. Fiber: 2g
I have no idea how many carbs to count toward my total here. If 3g are fiber, then that leaves 0.5g carb. But doing the math:
0.5g carb * 4 calories = 2 calories
3.5g prot * 4 calories = 14 calories
1.0g fat_ * 9 calories = 9 calories.
2cal + 14cal + 9cal = 25 calories. That’s not even CLOSE to 35. Where the hell is that other 10 calories coming from?
All I really want to know is how many carbs to count for this damn crap. There’s no chance that they’re already subtracting the fiber out of that carb total, is there? Any help would be appreciated.
