Below is a list of terms used by various articles on this site (so they don't have to be re-explained each time they are used).
LCHF diet
low carbohydrate, high fat diet. Used to attain or maintain a keto-adapted (also known as a ketogenic or fat metabolizing) state. See the Seeking42 low carb diet series.
net carb
total carbohydrates minus fiber. That's how I use the term, using data from a food's Nutrition Facts label if it exists, or from a site that seems trustworthy (such as this one), or my own best guess. Some people subtract a fraction (or none) of the fiber. Since there is no legal definition, always take a "net carbs" number with a grain of salt, especially from a manufacturer's label.
ninja trick (a loose translation using the modern usage of "ninja"). A more literal translation of this Japanese term might be something like "clever, alternative technique". Also known as a life hack.
