How many carbs are in cherries?

I really want one and I was just wondering how bad it would be.

I counted 1 carb per cherry also. I bought a bag 2 weeks ago and was glad when they were finally gone. They were so good but I had to count out 10 - 12 at a time for a treat. They were calling to me the whole time.

I'll save these for maintenance.

Do sour cherries have the same count? We have a HUGE tree outside and last night I picked a big bowl for the family and just sat back and watched while they ate them

It looks like they are pretty high too. The USDA site says that 1 cup of sour cherries has about 11 net carbs. One cup of sweet cherries has about 17-18 net carbs.

Thanks Linda Sue. 11 isn't so bad for a cup--but I think I'll wait until I'm getting close to maintenance. They sure look good though!

Thanks everyone. Isn't that the same count as a strawberry? I eat strawberries quite often. I bought a bag of cherries for my db and he's not eating all of them so I think I'll treat myself to a few.

Eat the cherries with something high-fat or protein. This will negate some of the blood sugar issues.

Cherries are awfully easy to overindulge in, even still. Could you pit them and freeze them rather than falling into the "My boyfriend won't eat them and I can't just throw them away" trap?

Food is wasted whether you eat it not to waste it (and not because you wanted it and allocated for it) or tossed it in the trash.

We're not feeding any starving high-fashion models in New York either way.

Okay I won't fall in the trap. Though I did eat three. So can I just throw fresh cherries in the freezer or do I have to pit them. Do I need to put any liquid with them? How do I use them after I freeze them? I know alot of questions, but I never froze fresh fruit brfore. Thanks for the advice.

Talk about temptation--my mom has a small cherry orchard (2 acres) and I'm going to stay with her to help her pick them to sell...looking at beautiful tree ripened cherries all day long for 3 days straight. I'll be dreaming of cherries.

I have been having a cup of strawberries and cherries with a couple thin slices of cheddar cheese and I have actually started losing again..............

YMMV, but I am having good luck with incorporating plenty of fresh, raw vegetables and fruits into my way of eating and am steady losing..........

I would much rather eat fresh fruit than to eat a candy bar!

I can't remember where I heard this, but I had heard that the sugar in cherries is abosorbed differently than regular sugar and it doesn't convert completly like other fruits. Maybe thats why when I used to eat too many of them........well, 'nuff said.
I might have a few before the season is over, I love them too!

I indulged last night with 1/4 c sour cherries, a pack of Splenda and a Tb. of cream. It was wonderful! If you can freeze them, cherry ice cream. If you can control the portions, go for it.

Got this from a cherry site.

"To freeze cherries, wash and drain them dry, then spread them evenly over a cookie sheet or flat tray and freeze them. When frozen solid, transfer the cherries to a plastic bag. They'll keep up to a year this way."

I made homemade cherry preserves for my kids! With just a little bit of sugar and honey and some pectin. Way better than buying the store bought stuff!

We made cherry perserves for less than one gram of carbs per Tablespoon. Very delish.

Also you can freeze cherries on a cookie tray , single layer. Then bag them. We eat them in the winter right out of the freezer. They are like candy. Don't defrost they will be mush.

The health benefits of cherries and their antioxidant values are superior to most fruits. 5-7 cherries pack a nutriitonal punch.

Another suggestion for having them with fat would be to have them with a half cup or so of Fage Total. That's what I do - mix the Fage with a little Splenda and have about 6-8 cherries with it. It's divine! Of course, where we live cherries are $10/pound so I don't really indulge anymore.

how many pounds can you lose?

I suppose it is not cool to suggest an amount you might lose so I will just tell you I always lose a pound a day on Atkins. I eat 3-4 cups of vegies and do not count those carbs in my total as long as they are allowed vegies like lettuce, greens, broccoli, green beans, celery, onions, tomatoes, cucs, etc. I eat meats, cheese, eggs, cream, butter, fats, etc. in unlimited amounts. I treat myself with more of the same, like a snack of bacon or some cheesy scrambled eggs or deviled eggs with a little mayo and a touch of sweet and low. Drink lots of ice tea sweetened with sweet n low. Favorite way to eat hamburger is a crispy gr. beef patty with lots of crunchy lettuce and sweet onion chunks and a dollop of real mayonaise. Get a little of each in each bite. Yummy. Russell Stover sugar free chocolate pecan caramel candies and their chocolate mints are about 0 net carbs and yummy. Never eat more than 2 or 3 because th sugar alcohols will make your tummy growl and growl and give you the runs. I have been eating low carb again for 10 days and have lost 10 lbs. I weigh 230 though. You won't lose much if you eat ANY sugar, flour, starch, potatoes, etc. It stops the process. Goodluck. Oh, also like to slice hotdogs, squirt mustard on them and put either sliced American cheese or sliced hard cheese on top of it all and microwave it till all is a little crispy. Great meal or snack. Pork steak is good browned on both sides then baked at about 375 or so until done and lot of fat is cooked out. Nice and tasty when you are missing crispy, salty starchy snacks. Murray's sugar free cookies, if you can eat only one or part of one, come in handy for an emergency craving, but cheating creates more cravings.

low carb cherry

Baby foods have low carb cherry products with no more than 5 g carbs and 1 g fiber. It's already portioned out for you, even though you're an adult and you can use it in your low carb recipe, for ice cream, crepe,etc.
