Sarah,

Bagels are pretty high in carbs, partilarly if you get bakery-style 
bagels.  Plus, anything other than the pre-packaged bagels (such as 
Lender's, etc.) will have quite a variance in the amount of carbs they 
have.  For example, I have listings for a Blueberry bagel of different 
brands and types, and they range from 42 carbs to 69.

You might need to actually weigh the bagel to compare to the packaging.
