Below it saids that you need 2 slices to make a sandwich use rye bread cut in half its same size as 2 pieces of bread and the rye bread is harder to digest so it takes longer which spreads your sugar level in system over a longer period and that makes it lower or more stable if you do not like rye use things high in fiber like whole grains instead of white or wheat

15 grams of carbs = 1 slice of bread is right! 2 slices is essentially a meal of carbs, and almost to the limit, not including anything in between those slices or anything to drink as well.

nhks-good reference! thanks!

This recipe sounds really good. I plan on trying it. For thosewho do not carb count their meals, 15gms of carbs are the same as 1 serving of bread

my diabetic specialist said any diabetic can have up too 36 gms of carbs (sugars) per meal. no more than that. so this recipe allows for more than one helping/serving of baby back ribs.

at 36 times 3 thats a total of 108 per day. and thats the average anyone should take in to be healthy.

I am not understand, if you are diabetic why do you put in ingredients that have sugar. I thought diabetics should have no more than 5 gm per day
