Beans Carb Chart - Atkins

Beans Carb Chart - Atkins
Beans are a staple of many diets in regions where animal protein (chicken, beef, etc.) is hard to come by. They are great for hard working farmers, because they pack a lot of calories in a small package. While this is great for people slaving in the fields 10 hours a day, it's less great for people sitting in an office chair.

The carbs listed are the effective carbs - the fiber counts have already been removed. All servings are 1/2 cup.

Important note - servings are always measuring the food you are about to eat - not the food before you begin to cook it. So the half cup of beans is of COOKED beans, sitting on your plate and ready to eat. Beans plump up significantly while they are being cooked. So don't measure the beans before cooking. You can stuff far more beans into a half cup when they are dry. Be sure to measure them when they are done being cooked.

If you have any type of bean not on this list that you'd like to know about, please let me know! I am happy to research and update this listing.
