Michael,

Here's a quote from his website:
"In this revised Food Block Guide, we have subtracted all dietary fiber from the total carbohydrate content of each carbohydrate block, which will increase the total weight or volume when compared to any other food listing or food database. This provides a more precise definition of the desired carbohydrate content of a meal or snack to keep you in the Zone."

It's similar to Atkins' idea of "net" carbs (i.e., total grams of carbs minus grams of fiber). They only count the carbs that the body can actually use.
