A.

I am looking in the BEST book a diabetic can have. "The Calorie King Calorie & Fat Carbohydrate Counter." This book has the menu and counters of every single restaurant in the country, including all the fast-food chains. It has every single food stuff ever created in it and the calorie, fat, and carbohydrate amounts. I bought it at Barnes & Noble on line. I got one to keep in the car and one in the house. It says Braised Liver (3oz)  has 140 calories, 4 grams of fat, and 3 grams of carbs. I see nothing in this book that says you cannot eat liver. Meats are protein and that is essential for us.  The carbs are only 3 and that's nice. My educator said to count the carbs and stay 80 - 130. Two hours  after  we eat, stay under 180. That is 45 - 60 carbs per meal. Figure out from this book how many carbs are in whatever you are going to eat and stick with these numbers. Generally, meats do not have a lot of carbs.  I hope this helps you to enjoy your liver dinner.
