Q. What are Carbohydrate Choices?
Carbohydrate Choices are a way of counting the amount of carbohydrates you consume in your diet. This counting method is based on the American Diabetes Association's Exchange Lists and can help you to size up your portions and know how many carbohydrates you
are eating if nutrition facts are not readily available. Carbohydrates are found in grains, fruits, vegetables, dairy products, and many combination foods (such as casseroles, soups, or desserts). Each Carbohydrate Choice contains about 15 grams of carbohydrate.
It is important to pay attention to the amount of carbohydrate you consume to control blood sugar. It is equally important to be mindful of calories and fat to help with maintaining a healthy body weight.
