I just looked up the carb count for 1 c. frozen blueberries. It has 19 grams of carbs, 4 grams of fiber and 13 grams of sugar. It has an estimated glycemic load of 4.
Could someone explain what this means? If I'm trying to figure out my carb count for this food item, do I just count carbs? Or does the sugar count as additional carbs? And I don't know what a "bad" glycemic load is. I don't know why, but I have difficulty understanding about counting carbs and sugars. It's easy to look up the numbers but not easy to determine what to count. Thanks!!
