From Laura Dolson, your Guide to Low Carb Diets
Nuts are a great low-carb food, and are good for us, too! We do need to watch it, though, as they aren't zero carb, and some people can overdo if they aren't careful. This week I give you help with the best choices. Also, fiber. Its value is more controversial than you might think, and I wrote about it in my blog this week. Have a wonderful week! Laura

Carbs and Fats in Nuts and Seeds
Nuts have been shown to be heart-healthy, and they can be a good low-carb snack. But nuts aren't all created equal. Some have more carb than others, and their constellation of fats varies quite a lot. I've made a chart making it easy to compare the most commonly-eaten nuts and seeds. Check out the carbs, fiber, calories, and the types of fats in each.

Is Added Fiber Actually Helpful?
Health journalists such as Gary Taubes have pointed out that the evidence for the value of dietary fiber is scant. I mostly agree, although not entirely. A recent piece about fiber on NPR caught my attention. Also, I chat about fibers added to low-carb products.
