I wanted to know can you take a fiber supplement to lower your carb count? Like how if something has 10 carbs and 4g fiber that would be 6 net carbs. Can I take fiber pills to reduce it even more?
No, taking addtional fiber doesn’t help reduce the carb count of something else. That’s because the fiber itself is considered to be a carb. In your example, if you took a fiber supplement that had 3 gram fo fiber, it would also add 3 grams of carbs. The carbs and fiber cancel each other out.
