Carbs are carbs but our body’s response to them depends on their glycemic index (a measure of how quickly they are absorbed) and what they are combined with.
Fiber slows down absorption of sugar which in turn lowers peak insulin levels… remember its the highs and lows that do the harm.
Ok...lots of different opinions about food even among academics...but...if she feels like the fiber will not counteract some of the carb effect (as in the Keto view), then easy enough...just count carbs without subtracting the fiber. That'll cut the carbs way back. .
