I just ate an EAS Carb Control Myoplex Nutrition Bar. The nutrition info on
the wrapper says that it contains 24 grams of carbs, of which 3 grams are
sugar, 3 grams are dietary fiber, and 18 grams are "non-impact carbs". Is
there such a thing? I thought dietary fiber was the only kind of carb that
didn't count, for lack of a better way to put it. I'm just trying to figure
out how to figure out what my daily intake of protein, fat and carbs are,
and I'm not sure whether I need to include the full 24 grams or just the
sugars or the sugars and the non-impact carbs. Any help would be much
appreciated. Thanks!

Only in the mind or marketers.

Until I come up with a better answer: count glycerol as part of your
total carbohydrate.

Blood Sugar is the concerning issue. It's your health, do a google search
and read about it. Here's a snip:

"The FDA also recognizes that not all carbohydrates are equal and some
ingredients do not effect the body like "simple" carbs. This is why you are
now hearing the new buzz words on nutrition products called Effective Carbs
& Non-impact Carbs. The FDA previously preferred a disclaimer on all
wrappers, which was an asterisk noted on the bar stating that, "not all the
carbs were counted in the total carb count as they have a neglible impact on
your blood sugar." This was the standard until recently, when the FDA
contacted manufacturers regarding a change in guidelines. They now require
full disclusure of total carbohydrates, but because they recognize that not
all carbohydrates effect the body, the non-effective carbs (Maltitol,
Glycerin & Fiber) are subtracted from the total to give the consumer the
number or carbs that will effect their body and blood sugar."

And what does it mean to say that a carb does, or does not,
effect the body?

In other words, there are carbs that don't break down as fast (like
Maltitol,Glycerin & Fiber) and therefore do not flood your blood stream with
glucose. And as you know, the "simple" carbs (like sugar) get into the blood
stream quickly activating fat storage for that energy. It also causes fast
insulin reactions which throws off blood chemistry effecting metabolism.
Ever eat a lot of cabs (pop, rise, bread, sweets, pasta, ect) and feel
bloated and get a head ach? That's simple carbs screwing up your blood
chemistry.

Further, the insulin trys to balance the sugar in your body. Research is
indicating, that If abused, this insulin glucose process can lead to
diabetes.

The easiest way I have to understand this issue is to avoid sugars and
processed foods as a "main" part of you diet. If a product has been striped
and processed, like white bread, you are basically eating predigested food
(quick input of sugar). You body does a lot better when it has to digest
(process) the food itself! The more natural the food the better. Duh! We
should know better!

Aren't non-impact carbs fibre that isn't digested and therefore
non-impacting in terms of both carb and calorie counts ?

I think "non-impact carbs" are probably triple SU's that need cleaning
and adjusting to improve sluggish BHP!! ;o)

Have a great week-end!!

How do fast insulin reactions effect metabolism?

It's not in quite the same vein as a Hoffism, but you get the
picture.

That is not a new concept.

The idea was introduced some years back with the High glycemic and low
glycemic carbs concept.

Cellulose, which is technically a carb, but humans are not impacted because
we lack the enzyme to digest this carb.
So, it just becomes part of your sh*t
