Use these helpful lists to help you count the carbohydrates while on the Liver Shrinking Diet.

Carbohydrate Counts of Dairy Products, Milk, Cream, Yogurt, Soy Milk, Coconut Milk

Here are the carb counts of a cup (8 fluid ounces) of the following, according to the USDA database. Note: some milks are “protein-fortified”, and sometimes powdered milk is added for more “body” – this will alter the carb counts, so be sure to check the label. Also, “cream” varies depending upon the amount of butterfat and lactose.

Whole milk – 11.4 grams of carbohydrate

2 % milk – 11.7

1 % milk – 11.6

Fat-free (skim) milk – 11.9

Buttermilk – 11.7

Goat’s milk – 10.9

Half and Half – 10.4

Light Cream – 7.1

Heavy Cream – 6.6

Evaporated milk (canned) – 25.3

Nonfat evaporated – 29.0

Sweetened condensed milk – 166 (not a typo)

Unsweetened soy milk – between 2 and 5, depending upon brand. (Note: Most soy milk is sweetened.)

Unsweetened almond milk – 2-3 grams, depending upon brand – again, most is sweetened

Coconut milk – 6.3

Sour Cream – 9.8

Yogurt – Plain yogurt starts out with the same carb count as the milk it’s made from, but watch the label, as additives can change this number. Also, the bacteria in yogurt eats the lactose, so depending upon how long it’s fermented, the actual carb count can be up to 8 grams less per cup.
