High-carbs = 55+ carbohydrates per 100                                    Low-carbs = 54- carbohydrates per 100


It is important to combine foods that facilitate a more balanced carbohydrate count.  For instance a meal consisting of baked potato, white rice, corn-on-the-cob and a meat could increase your carbohydrate count by almost 300 grams in one meal.  Generally, women should consume about 45-60 grams of carbohydrates per meal, while men should consume about 60-75 grams of carbohydrates per meal. As a general rule do not combine any items in the first column.  You may combine one high carb item with, at most, three low-carb items in one meal.  If you choose to utilize the three low-carb item amount, then reduce the number of high-carb items for the rest of your meals for that day to one maximum.
