The article in the post below is a great resource.
If you even want to be more specific, a serving of grain, starchy vegetable or fruit would be the amount that would contain 15 grams of carbohydrate (or very close to this amount).

You don't have to eat the whole thing.

If you search the member-entered data you can find some serving/portion sizes.
Alternately, there's a good resource at calorielab.com/index.html that lists all sorts of individual foods *and* restaurant foods. Even fast food.

I'm never completely sure about things other members enter here; sometimes they're good, but some people only care about calories, and that's all that will be in their "nutrition info". When I can, I always enter my own from the label on the package. The portion or serving the manufacturer lists is rarely what I expect it to be!

Is there a page anywhere on Spark that lists exactly what to count as one serving of complex carbs, fruit & veggies, etc? Or does anyone know of another site that would have such a list? Thanks for your help.
