And although it all has become somewhat habit for me to count carbs on everything, I still get bit, every once in a while. I have always heard that and also read it that if the fiber is under 5 grams not to count it. And, you are saying that I should count it and I somewhat agree with you, but, there has to be a point at which the amount of fiber will not effect my BG, so where is that point or is it (5 gr.) just a safety margin and a good starting point. Or, (and I just thought of this, is this info primarily just for pump users? Conor Smith April 7, 2014 at 3:28 pm - Reply Great stuff, Jennifer! The tennis ball and hand for fruit tidbit was awesome.
