  • Reading and Counting Carbs

    Question: Hello Roberta. A quick question please - thank you. I believe the carb reading of rice is +/- 45 carbs per cup. Would it still be 45 carbs if it was 1/4 cup, etc.? Thanks again.

    Answer: No, if one cup is 45 grams of carbs, then a quarter cup would have about 11 grams. A serving size of rice is a ½ cup, but you are allowed 2-3 servings of carbs per meal, so a cup of cooked rice is fine at one meal. I am glad you are still on track and I am always happy to answer any questions.

    Feel good!
