How does SP track net carbs -- it's on optional nutrient to add to the food tracker

Keep in mind the following: It is in the US (only, I think?) that the carbs need to be subtracted to get your net carbs. In Europe, and Oz, and maybe other countres, fibre is already subtracted on the nutrition label.

Keeping carbs down

This is not a full understanding of net carbs as I understood it. If you are eating whole foods like say a cucumber, then all the fiber can be subtracted bc there are no additives or starches or anything else that would affect the carb count. I thought this method was only to be used for processed foods. Like if your going to eat some chips then this would be true or a better way to count carbs. Has anyone else had it explained to them like it was explained to me? Have I been doing it wrong?

I need to keep reviewing Carb Counting over and over to completely understand it.
