The carbs in fruit can add up quickly, so here's a handy list of the most common fruits and the carb load of each.
I've set the amounts at one ounce so it would be easy to calculate a larger serving. I always find that "1 medium peach" is too vague. My medium peach might be a small one to others.
In addition, since fruit contains fiber, and fiber cannot be digested, I've included a column for net carbs which is a short way of indicating usable carbs, or the total carbs minus the fiber carbs.
