No problem. That seems like a small carb count. Hopefully you get lots of veggies and protein.

Thanks MellaMiss! I didn't know what an exchange or carb count amounted too. My nutririonist simply said "30-50g of carbs a day." Not exactly enlightening! :)

I don't really look at the grams. I have a conversion book which I look at for all my foods to get the count.

Pulled it out and one exchange is 15 grams of carbs, but I honestly don't look at that too often.

Are you all counting grams, like me, or how are you counting these? I am still trying to figure it all out! Thanks for the great input! Do most of your carbs come from veggies and fruits, or more starchy things like bread and corn?

the nutritionist that I see has me on 4 carbs for breakfast, 3 for lunch, 4 for dinner, and 1 for snack. I try to eat all wheat products if possible for my breads and pasta.

I am curious as I read cookbooks for type II and see what people on this site are having for breakfast as to what counts everyone is on? I have been put on 30-50 g of carbs a day and 80-100 g of protein per day. Are most people eating low carb bread and tortillas? I am just curious because I know with type I insulin injections can be used to adjust for added carbs and such, but I thought most of type two was controlled through diet and oral medications that can not be easily adjusted. Would anyone mind sharing their plans? Thanks!
