Carb-Conscious Recipes Directory
Tracking your carbohydrate intake has never been simpler. Whether you are physically active or trying to maintain weight, people with diabetes can eat the foods they enjoy by simply carb counting. A general guideline for the amount of carbohydrates per meal is 35-55 grams for women and 50-65 grams for men. Before you head to your kitchen, please remember to consult with your health care provider about any planned dietary shifts, especially if you are being treated for diabetes or other health conditions. And as always, be mindful of portion sizes.
