One "carb" equals 15 grams of carbohydrates.

Patrick can have 4 carbs at each meal and 1 carb per snack (3 times per day).

I've been looking at labels a lot lately... Here are some things I've found:

  • One 4 ounce glass of wine is 1 carb
  • One slice of whole wheat toast is around 1 carb
  • One cup of most raw vegetables is 1 carb
  • 1/2 cup of cooked vegetables is 1 carb
  • One banana is 2 carbs
  • 4 oz of orange juice is 1 carb
  • One new potato is 1 carb

You just have to look on labels to find these things out.
