This means eating them whole is doing exactly what we should be avoiding. The seeds have equal amounts of C+F. And how many tablespoons of fresh seed do you need to crush to be able to extract 3 full mesure tblspoons of the oil, A DAY? Is this just the fattest contradiction ever or can anyone tell me summin else?
The previous two posters are right about subtracting the fiber from the carb count. On your other question, a good rule of thumb is 2 tablespoons of seeds for 1 tablespoon of oil. Grind up 6 tablespoons to get your flax for the day.
