@ MewElla, Somoca, Dietcherry, Louri, AuntieBear, and CutiePie2; it was a pleasure to share this with all of you, but it's been an even greater pleasure to devour this. I hope you found it to be as tasty too. Bon Appetit!!!

COUNTING CARBS BY: EMILIA KLAPP, RD, BS
You can use this formula to figure out your carbs. Let's say you are in a 1,500 calorie diet. You calculate 50% of 1,500 = 750. Then you divide 750 by 4 (the number of calories in each carb) = 187.50. You can split it as follows:
If you have 3 meals and 3 snacks you can have 40 carbs in each of the three main meals and 20 carbs in each snack.
Make sure your carbs are whole such as whole bread, whole pasta, brown rice, etc.
But, as some people advised you here, be alert at your reaction when you eat certain carbs and to the amount you eat.

WHAT I'VE LEARNED ABOUT COUNTING CARBS AND OTHER THINGS:
Kaiyle August 8 at 4:33 am report

What I've learned in my diabetic class is that we can have 45-60 grams of carbs per meal and 15-25 grams of carbs per snack. Also 10-15 grams of fat per meal, no more than 35-55 grams of fat per day. You can also subtract from your total carb grams any fiber grams.

Hello Frogette. Actually, any amount of fiber grams can be subtracted from your total amount of carbs.
