No, but...!: Hi Lianetteh, No. Carbohydrates are good, needed, and should not be eliminated in a diabetic diet. Carbs are the only nutrient that raise blood sugar, therefore a diabetic needs to consume the same amount of carbs with each meal to best manage their diabetes. Generally, it is recommended to consume around 60 grams per meal. This approach is called carb-counting. For more info: www.calorieking.com
