Computer crashed in middle of discussion. Wanted to know how to count carbs fast and easy. Is there free help on computer? Have a CalorieKing book but it takes a long time and people 1/2 done with meal before I can figure it out.

The cumputer does that to me often in the middle of sentences. If not crashing the window switches to another tab for some random reason.
INever figured out an easy way myself while learning. Since I have memorized some items it goes quicker. Plus all the adding has helped my rusty math skills, making it go faster.

When the computer does that I almost forget what I'm talking abt. lol I would love to have everything figured out so I would be perfect with my insulin dosage.

I would love to have everything figured out too. I just have settleted for faster than I used to be. At least I can read food labels better some days. It still takes longer at the store than when carbs where not my enemy.
My computer plays it tricks of losing what I had written when it ws my best post ever. (LOL)

The hospital included 2 booklets in the Welcome to the Wonderful World of Diabetes packet they gave me.
One is Nutrition in the Fast Lane I found a website that said you could order it online and free of charge at the Healthy Hoosiers Web site But I don't know if you need to be living in Indiana to get it. The site also provides links to other resources.
The other is Take Charge By Counting Carbs. www.lantus,com/docs/consumer/pdf/CarbCounter.pdf
This is a free Adobe pdf document of the booklet. I just downloaded it to my computer a moment ago to see if the link was still good. It took two tries for some reason, probably my very slow internet connection was involved.
