Smile How many carbs are in a pound?

Everybody knows there are 3500 calories in a pound, but what I can't seem to find is how many carbs are in a pound. If anybody could tell me how many carbs are in one pound, it would be a huge help.

Thanks lots!

Carbohydrates and protein are 4 calories per gram, alcohol is 7 and fat is 9 calories per gram. Thus one pound (3500 calories) is 875 grams of carbohydrate or protein, 500 grams of alcohol and 389 grams of fat.
