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, I've done all that work for you!
Find carb counts for meat, fish, dairy, veggies, fruits, right here on www.carbcheckdiet.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!
Chicken & Turkey is USUALLY carb-free, but there's a caveat. Be careful when it comes to packaged chicken and turkey sausages and burgers. Read those labels. Most brands are fine, but keep in mind that chicken and turkey are lean meats and so in grinding these meats, well, they naturally lack a lot of flavor. Manufacturers of chicken/turkey sausages and the like use a lot of other ingredients/fillers (which means carbs) in making those products taste good.
