  • 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!

  • 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

    Good morning , I am on an Insulin pump , I had problems finding an easy to to goto chart this is it. I know it helps me to see just how much I am using and I can and from there . Most people do not understand that this is just a chart to help you add your carbs , like one slice of bread is 15 grams if you have two slices add them with what ever you put on it and EX, egg and cheese you have a sandwich= which would be about 45 grams ( estimating) . I have just learned this fact from my dietician , she loves this site . - 10/8/2015 9:00:03 AM
    I like the article and the table but was also surprised to see any type of fruit juice listed. I have always been told to stay away from juice because of my diabetes. - 9/12/2015 10:35:29 PM
