Are "net" carbs real or are they just a scam, for example i saw a cinimaon roll oatmeal that had 34 Carbs and 10g of fiber if i was counting carbs would i count it as 24 or 34

'Net carbs' is a misleading gimmick. The fiber isn't metabolized as a typical carb but depending on its degree of fermentability it can be fermented which yields short chain fatty acids and does have energy value. People think that they don't count for anything, which is incorrect.
