Do we carb count for them? I can't remember!

I finished DAFNE a few months back and the official line is that salted nuts do not count although the packet does give some small carbs figures. That said I have personally found that it's the one thing that puts my BG sky high if I eat anything more than a small amount. Try it out at zero carbs and see how it goes. Andy

Yes, nuts will shoot my BGs high too if I don't take QA for them too.

I think there is about 4 grams of Carbs for every 25 grams of nuts. If you eat more than a handful that can add up and I too have found they drive my BS high. Maybe I just eat too many Rolling Eyes
