I used to look up carb counts on the internet or read the packaging for each and every food item I prepared and ate. When putting something on the grill or in a frying pan for example, I would read the packaging or look on the internet for the serving size and carb count. Writing those numbers down, I would then do some math to get a carb count total for all foods consumed at meal time. That carb count research got tedious at times, but now I've got some great data to share!
You don't have to look up carb counts one-at-a-time, yours truly - Mr. Bachelor on the Cheap - has done all that work for you!
Find carb counts for meat, fish, dairy, veggies, fruits, right here on www.bacheloronthecheap.com.
And if you don't see the carb count for a food you want to eat listed here, it's not listed for a reason - the carb count is too high, don't eat it!
Milk, cheese, creams.... They're all excellent additions to meals you can prepare with what I call the Carb-Check Diet, dairy products make for great snacks too! Caution though, although many dairy products pack some pretty good protein, they have some carbs too, so moderation is key. As a general rule of thumb, most cheeses that you can slice or shred, are under 1 gram of carbohydrate per ounce. And check out the milk, don't waste your time drinking 2%.
