I never counted the fiber into it. To me, it'd have 20g carbs. I could be wrong, but its what I do.

x2. To me, 20g of carbs is 20g of carbs regardless.

Gotcha. I was just more or less responding to the OP - he wasn't very specific about his diet. Still If I was carb cycling I would still treat that the same.

I don't know squat about keto but may be giving it a run in the spring.
