Newbie here.
I have googled this without any success. With most everyone connected today with pods and hi-tech cell phones, all the carb counting software that I found could link or connect or sync between their device and a computer. That's the market today, but not what i want.

Years ago when I was chasing high blood pressure, I found a perfect little program for about $20. You entered your BP taken during the day, along with related details, and bang! Great charts and results.

Today's carb related programs need waaaaay too much detail, and/or far too complicated. All I want is a database with carbs, and related details for foods. I enter the portions, and bang. Results!

Any one see something like this? Many thanks

I just use an Excel spreadsheet I made up for myself. I print out a two sided copy and carry it in my meter case. In very condensed form I keep track of my tests, carbs, amount of sleep, weight, and everything I eat - also noting any weird feelings or illness. That one piece of paper holds everything for about 16 days. Then I enter just each day's fasting and high reading into another spreadsheet.
I also made myself a tiny chart of the foods I'm likely to eat and their carb/fiber counts and another paper lists all the supplements and medications I take and my latest lab test results. These all fit in the pocket of my meter case.
You can also make pretty charts and graphs out of any info you enter in Excel.

Thanks. That is probably what I will do. I just wanted a food content database, otherwise I have to look them up.

Another thing that annoys me about online carb counters is that I have yet to find one that can be exported to Excel or Access.
