    I'm confused with the macros on this recipe. According to fitnespal this has 18g of carbs per serving 45g in fat and 29g protein. Am I missing something?

    You may need to subtract the fiber. We provide the full nutrition information in the Nutrition+ tab under the list of ingredients. 7g net carbs + 11g fiber = 18g total carbs.
