Count Carb: How Many Teaspoons of Sugar in your Food Items

This is a new way to count carb in your food, so as you find it more easy to count carbs in all your food items.

This list contains the equivalent number of teaspoons of sugar in your food items. It is derived from their carb content. Calculations are made based on the net carb content, i.e. excluding fibers.

Reading this list makes you sense the carb content of food items, e.g.
eating 1 medium avocado supplies your body with 306 Calories, only 14 of which are coming from equivalent to less than 1 teaspoon of sugar,and the rest is coming from beneficial nutrients including good fats, while eating 1 dried fig supplies 47.7 Calories about 42 of which come from carb equivalent to 2.62 teaspoons of sugar.

While eating white sugar has unhealthy effects, all fruits -except the dried items which can only be eaten within a calorie plan- contain small amounts of sugars, and they should represent a considerable part of your carb intake.

The lists take exhaustive work, and I can not continue unless people want them, so please if you are interested just put 1 word in your comment " continue".
