I keep my carbs at 60 or below. There are many books that tell you how many carbs are in certain foods. I bought one 30 + years ago and am still using it. I also read the lables on packages along with the serving size. If I have something which doesn't show the carbs I guestimate it but still try to stay under 60. The hard part is that if you are at 60, you are done eating for the day unless you have something with 0 carbs. I also look at the sugar content of the product. You can have 0 carbs but hi sugars. I have noticed if I have too many carbs, my b/s goes up. Good Luck it is all will power.

I know what you are saying; it is really hard to count your carbs when you just have to make guess at it…I really have a hard time with that one. I have that book "The Calorie King," it is great! I highly recommend it…I am on the pump, and if I don't have help counting my carbs, I still can get into trouble… Hang in there and good luck…
