The answer is it depends - it depends on your dietary restrictions, it depends on how many calories you should be eating per day, and it also depends if you're a man or a woman. On average a woman should consume 45-60 grams of carbohydrates per meal and a man should consume 60-75 grams per meal. Snacks should contain between 15-30 grams of carbohydrates. All carbohydrates need to be accounted for so you can balance your insulin injections to your carbohydrate intake. If you aren't quite sure, this is something you should follow up with your doctor or certified diabetes educator to understand more about.
