[IP] carb count

<<<I have been trying to find carb counts for Cracker Barrel.  Not in  
Calorie King Book and they don't have a listing apparently--or don't want us 
to know!!>>>

Extremely high, is my guess.  I checked the Cracker Barrel website and to 
quote them "Cracker Barrel certainly understands the health-conscious 
concerns that some of our guests have. While we are unable to give you any 
exact calorie or fat content information, the following choices may help you 
in your selection:" and follow with a list of obvious things to do, such as 
order diet coke instead of regular coke, substitute promise spread for 
butter, order a salad, etc--precisely the stuff that you don't go to Cracker 
Barrel to eat!

When I eat at Cracker Barrel for breakfast, I just guestimate and then 
double my bolus and follow my BG closely for the next 8 hours.  I don't eat 
there often, but when I do, I consider a Cracker Barrel day a one meal day 
because I'm sure the calorie count in that one meal is way higher than I 
normally eat in a day.  At least I'm full when I'm done and often don't want 
to eat again until the next day.  :)
