"What helps Most"

Amy Tenderick ,Author of Straight up, What helps Most, Published on Dlife.com explains how importatnt carb counting is.

 

"Carb counting aids. Anything that can help me here is HUGE. I wish to God that carb counts would be stamped on every piece of food, but since that's not going to happen, I rely pretty heavily on my nice compact digital kitchen scale. For practice, another neat thing I've discovered is Carb Cards, nifty flash cards that help remind you how to count for loads of basic foods. "- Amy Tendrick Author, www.diabetesmine.com
