When I was T-dawging it and other various diets I didnt count the fiber in veggies etc.
I Like you noed a Big A$# plate of brocili is a little different than say a soda or even baked potato.
Also as you noted I would however avoid and count those Damn frnken foods and sugar alcohols. I have had the pleasure of seeing insuling test done prior to and just post ingestion of just One sugar alcohol "low/no impact candy" and it spiked insulin just like any simple sugar would.
And D-dawg 2 is a Great choice IMO. Have tried CT's route as of yet. Been on a more relaxed using what I learned clean bulk for about a year and a half. May try it if/when I cut again.
Hope that helps,
