  • 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.
  • I am in the same boat. Just found an outstanding site http://www.dietdoctor.com which is LCHF program. Hope it helps.

    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 .

    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.
  • MAMACOLON7
    I always thought that beans & legumes were a form of protein but this list has them as a carb. Will have to ask the dietitian when I visit her.
  • I'm not diabetic but I'm liking this chart.
