I use a book called The calorie King
It has all the foods in it and is easy to keep with you
It works and yes I use a scale
Best wishes

My doctor told me to have 3-4 servings of carbs per meal with a 2-3 serving snack. A serving of carbs is 15 carbs. So that equals about 60 carbs per meal, check my math cause I just woke up lol! If you want to know what I'm doing about carbs just message me doll!! :)

Is there an app for smart phones that you could use to access carb information? (I don't have a smart phone but know I'm probably in the minority. It seems that there is so much good info to be had.)

There are charts with all the listings of carbohydrate, I had to use it at a restaurant recently cause they didn't provide it on the menu, and I needed the carbohydrate count on what to eat

From what I've learned, its 45grams for a woman per meal and 60 for men,
Me that would be 2 home made steak fajitas, with 2 flour tortillas some veggies a little bit of sour cream and cheese with water or crystal light
