Do Eggs Have Carbs?

Some places it says 1, some places it says 0, and the little Atkins booklet I got says .06 for fried or boiled.

I'm so confused!!

I believe ****** says .56 and my carton for a large says 1, so I have always counted mine as 1...better for me to over estimate than under..

To be safe, count as 1. Rather over than under as Missouri Librarian stated.

Thanks all, that is what I have been doing, counting them as 1! I am wondering though if my eggs from the guy around the corner, free range and totally organic are lower? In My Fat Secret I find these types of eggs as zero.

I doubt it, the carbs in eggs are essential for the development of the bird, so if Free range are better in any way they would have to keep or increase those carbs.

Eggs are not why I gained weight. IT was all that processed flour crap.

Who knew? Here I was, happy as a clam thinking they were free. Nuts! I'd still have to eat a hen-house full of them to get above the 15-20 carbs I'm allowing myself.

Yeah. Nobody really got fat on eggs and nuts. It's all that refined carbage.

Hi Linda…
According to the USDA National Nutrient Database for Standard Reference, a large egg is .39 carb, and a jumbo is .49 carb. They are the authority on official measures (and they even include weights for those measurements).

A jumbo egg is listed 63g and a large is 50g.

If anybody wants the link to the USDA National Nutrient Database for Standard Reference it is:

Database-CLiCK

It is searchable, and seems to list every food known to man...

Ok so the large egg is .39 carbs and weight of 50g? And Jumbo is .49 carbs and weight of 63g. Am I correct here? If so I like those numbers!!!

Great site, btw, thanks Larry!

WOE: low carb
Yep, but I don't count it. I mean really, would I ever eat such a ridiculous number that I'd have to worry? I cannot imagine it. I don't think I can eat more than 4 eggs in one sitting and usually I eat about 2. So even if I hate 4, we aren't talking many carbs.

I don't worry about carbs in eggs.

I count 1 gram per 100 calories. So a jumbo has 1 gram and down from there. I know some sites say there are less than that. Always hard to know what's right.
