Hi Norm,

I just got your book and have read through it (there’s a lot of free time when you’re on medical leave due to severe SIBO).
I was hoping you could clarify something for me. In calculating FP, are net carbs = total carbs – dietary fiber or are net carbs = total carbs – dietary fiber – sugar alcohols?

Thanks!
Irina
PS: I really wish I found your book/site earlier… I spent 5 months trying to convince my GP that I have SIBO so he could prescribe antibiotics. I know you don’t recommend antibiotics but I wasn’t aware that there was an alternative at the time plus my SIBO is so severe, I have many symptoms of severe SIBO you outlined in your book (including a 30-pound weight loss – significant considering I’m 5’9 and used to weigh 125 pounds!!)
