I am still not sure how much carbohydrates one should consume in a meal and throughout the day to ensure you keep your blood sugar under good control and especially if you are now on insulin? I know each person differs but at the same time the experts show you charts with the recommended amounts you should eat while at the same time, they tell you one size does not fit all. how can they plan a meal for me when my body reacts differently to 2 starches, 1 fat, 1 fruit and 1/2 cup of milk compared to how 'Mary jane's ( just using a name here) body will react ? I take 9 units of insulin at meal time.. how much Carbs should I have on my plate at any one meal… and how much should I consume at my 2 snack timees? and what are some of the things one can snack on to keep those numbers in check by the time u get around to the next peoper meal?
