I am averaging 200 carbs per day (less corrections). For a larger meal (lunch and dinner) I eat between 40 and 60 carbs. I almost always stay below 65 carbs per meal as I find it helps me minimize PP spiking. I also seek out low glycemic index foods to reduce PP spikes
I try to keep it right around 100 on most days. Some days I'm able to achieve that, some days I'm not. Weekends are especially hard, and eating out is just a bust most of the time. I find that if I go over 150 carbs, my BGs get especially unpredictable.
My diabetes dieticien recommends that I eat 30g at breakfast 30grams at lunch and 50 grams at dinner but I am eating less than this..I am eating 65 grams a day and I feel I have better control with this!:-)
135g, according to my pump, which gives an average. I would say some days I eat 50g or less and other days a lot more. I am trying to do better, since I do think eating extra carbs (and taking extra insulin) contributes to weight gain. Overall, I agree that you should eat whatever works for you.
Normally around 150-60, sometimes a bit more, sometimes less.
This doesn't include carbs that I eat without insulin before and during exercise. ( I used about 90g in a marathon a few weeks ago) or those for hypos.
I usually eat about 20 in the morning, 40 at lunch and 60 at dinner. So about 120. Some days, obviously, more or less. I don't pay much attention to the carb type, except when I have my weekly bagel. I go for pumpernickle (with nova, capers, tomatoes, and onions, yummmm.), which I find doesn't spike me as much as a white flour bagel.
