  • 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. - 2/19/2017 8:42:47 AM
  • Nice to have the carbs chart for quick reference. - 2/11/2017 10:35:37 AM
  • 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 - 12/14/2016 9:51:17 AM
  • Very helpful chart. - 11/19/2016 5:19:43 AM
  • 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! - 10/16/2016 3:06:38 PM
  • 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! - 7/5/2016 4:47:39 PM
  • 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. - 5/13/2016 10:38:09 AM
  • 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. - 4/18/2016 9:39:15 AM
  • Oh! Would have been perfect if you'd included soy milk - 1 cup = 15g of carbs or 1 serving. - 4/16/2016 4:04:22 PM
  • 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! - 4/16/2016 4:00:15 PM
  • 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. - 4/16/2016 7:16:07 AM
  • 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. - 1/8/2016 7:57:07 AM
