Is ECC a good mechanism for directing food choices? I just stumbled onto the concept of ECC Effective Carb Count. A package of high fiber/low carb tortilla wraps had endorsements by several physicians indicating the total carbs for each tortilla (one serving) was 18g and the dietary fiber was 12g, resulting in an ECC of 6g. I reviewed a number of beans/legumes as well as quinoa and was stunned to find that the quinoa recommended by a dietitian delivered a walloping 17g ECC. Any additional tips?
