I just started insulin 2 1/2 months ago and my nutritionist told me I needed to eat 45-60 grams of carbs at each meal so the insulin has something to work with. I was also told to eat 20 grams of carbs for two snacks.
I've reduced my carbs from those numbers just because I stopped eating bread, potatoes, noodles and processed foods so I found it hard to eat that much but a typical meal for me when I was eating that much was fibre 1 cereal with a banana and milk for breakfast. A tuna sandwich with added veggies and a salad for lunch and fish, 1/2 cup of potato or rice and stir fried veggies for supper. For snack, I normally had a piece of fruit for one snack and a sweet treat for the other.
If you use the tracker, it will tell you how many carbs are in everything you eat. Be sure to subtract the fibre from the carbs to get the net amount.
Hope this helps :)
