Hi there, I’m glad to see you are working hard to get the BS under control. This particular area was my specialty in college. My friends used to say Mike drank for five years, the degree was some sort of weird side affect of college. lol Here is what I found works for me and is good to keep in mind:
-Light Beers: 5-6g of carbs for 12oz
-Regular Beers (ie Budweiser, MGD, etc.) 6-8g of carbs for 12oz
-Microbrews are always a wild card (here in Ohio they can be as high as 12% ABV) I usually give them about 8-10g of carbs for 12oz
-Wine, has tons of sugars but they are simple sugars that can be burned off quickly by shaking my ■■■ on the dance floor or taking too much insulin. I usually figured about 24-30g of carbs per glass. Again, if you are between two numbers for an injection go for less insulin.
-Liquor is a special circumstance. There is a small amount of carbs in the drink it self due to the gains required to make. However the mixers if what you have to watch out for. OJ, cranberry, and other juices add up quick. Sweet and Sour is incredibly high in sugars as well as other liquer mixers. I just try to be as aware as possible to what the mix is (I know it’s tough to after the first few) it also never hurts to ask the bar tender what’s in it, like you are curious, when really your trying to calculate for you next injection.
I probably more experience than anyone should in this area but it’s fun to rock out every now and then!
Take care and have a great weekend!
