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. Report
Nice to have the carbs chart for quick reference. Report
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 Report
Very helpful chart. Report
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! Report
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! Report
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. Report
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. Report
Oh! Would have been perfect if you'd included soy milk - 1 cup = 15g of carbs or 1 serving. Report
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! Report
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. Report
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. Report
