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!
Fish and shellfish are excellent sources of protein. You can eat just about any kind of fish and not have to worry about blowing up your carb count. Most shellfish by the very nature of their diet, tend to carry more carbs than fish. The only real rule of thumb here, don't eat fish that's been breaded or battered. Grilled is the way to go!
