Fruit Carb Count: Fruits are tasty, but can be too much of a good thing

If you don't want to eat a small serving of strawberries, put a few in with your next glass of ice water, any kind of fruit will do!

By Mike Thayer

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

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!  You actually don't 'need' to eat fruits at all.  You get all the carbs and nutrients you need from veggies, without all the sugar. 

Carb Count:  Fruits

Item Serving Size Carb Count (in grams)
Blackberries 1/2 cup 4
Blueberries 1/2 cup 9
Canteloupe 1 cup 11
Cherries 1/2 cup 8
Clementine 1 fruit 8
Grapefruit 1/2 a fruit 13
Kiwi 1 fruit 8
Lemon 1 fruit 9
Lime 1 fruit 7
Orange 1 fruit 11
Peach 1 fruit 13
Plum 1 fruit 13
Raspberries 1/2 cup 3
Strawberries 1/2 cup 6

And yes, understanding that avocados and tomatoes are technically fruits, I put them on the veggies list, as that's how they are typically prepared, as a veggie.
