  • Thank you for the chart. Very helpful!
  • I wish I could have a weekly menu to help me distribute these carbs over the day and over the week. I am eating the "right stuff" but my portions are too large. And I am frequently "out and about" on errands and would like to know some good portable snacks.
  • Nice to have the carbs chart for quick reference.
  • Frozen meals have all the information right on the package; look at the salt content You will be surprise. You can look up the nutrition value on google Just type in i.e Nutrion information on carrots. Hope this helps
  • Very helpful chart.
  • I eat Lean Cuisine's at Supper, I also have 1 or 2 green vegetables & a fresh fruit. How do I count this as for as carbs. I'm thinking the fruit would be one carb & the vegetables would be 0 carbs. But how do you count the Lean Cuisine? This one might be easy, it's a Chicken Breast, white rice, tarragon sauce, and green beans. Chicken Breast is 0 carbs & green beans is 0 carbs again. But Monday Night
    I'm having Spaghetti with Meatballs. It has Spaghetti Sauce, I'm thinking that has 0 carbs, because
    there's not that much of it. What do ya' all think? I hope you have a Blessed Day on the Lord's Day! LYL!
  • This is helpful information, but difficult to read. Is it possible to reformat the chart itself to print only that information in a larger font, or to save it as a separate file so that one could tweak font type and boldness and size to the level we need? Thanks!
  • Not diabetic, but the chart is helpful just for carb counting!
  • this chart is very helpful. I will be printing it off and keeping it handy.
  • I am on a keto low carb diet to control my diabetics . I have only been on it for 16 days and my sugar reading has gone from 250 to 180 in 2 weeks. Just by watching my carbs.
  • Oh! Would have been perfect if you'd included soy milk - 1 cup = 15g of carbs or 1 serving.
  • This is really helpful! I don't believe that dairy is good for diabetics (or the planet) but easy enough to copy this onto an Excel sheet and make it dairy-free. Thanks!
  • Dry cereal, 3/4 cup?

    It depends on the cereal!! Puffed wheat or rice is so light and puffy, 3/4 of a cup would not be 15 grams, it would be less. Grape nuts, OTOH, are so very dense, we can only eat a small amount. Probably the article is referring to flakes, which would be in the middle.

    I read labels and look at the actual food.
  • I'm trying to watch how many carbs I eat. I'm not a diabetic. My son is a type 1. So I'm always looking for chart to simplify how much is a carb. This is very helpful. Thank you.
