Revelation!, 11 Aug 2010
I recently bought this book after visiting my diabetic clinic. What a [[ASIN:095644301X Carbs & Cals: A Visual Guide to Carbohydrate & Calorie Counting for People with Diabetes] revelation this turned out to be - after seeing the portion sizes and carbohydrate values in the book I realised I had been underestimating the amount of insulin I needed to give me stable blood sugar levels and that I needed to make alterations to my diet. I must say the calories are an eye-opener too! I have had type 1 diabetes since I was 12 (quite a few years ago now) but this book proves that there is always something new to discover and learn. If you have a meal out or a take-away it is difficult sometimes to guesstimate - this book takes a lot of the hard work away and makes life much easier ... I would recommend it to anyone - you won't be disappointed.
