Thank you too for your kind words. Generally speaking, for example, for exchange lists, starchy vegetables contain approx. 7 g of carbohydrate per 1/2 cup or 100g, while bread exchanges contain about 15 g of carbohydrate per servings (e.g. 1 slice of bread weighing about 25 g). If we use the latter as an example, then per 100g a carbohydrate food would contain 7 x 4 = 28 g of carbs. The 600g soups therefore contain 6 x 1,8 = 10,8 g of carbs (Chunky veg soup) and 6 x 2,4 = 14,4g of carbs (Veg and Barley soup), thus I would classify them both as medium-carb foods IF you have the whole 600 g in one meal. There is no scientific reason that I have come across that supports the theory that one should have "fewer carbs after 5 pm".
Enjoy your soup
