Thanks for the tip!
Which Eatsmart do you have? We'd like to order one but not sure what to choose. :)
I don't think the hard thing with pasta is counting the carbs, Marie. It's accurately bolusing for those carbs which doesn't always work according to our usual I:C ratio and dealing with late spikes. Kitchen scales won't necessarily help with that.
Yikes, I just realized this post is 4 years old! How do these things pop back up like this!
I weigh pretty much everything I eat (unless it's pre-measured like in a package) and I still get crazy spikes after some meals. I'd agree it's not so much about accurately weighing, although with pasta I'm always a bit unsure if I should weigh it before or after it's cooked.
i would think you would weigh the pre-cooked amount.
Nena, here's the video Manny made on the Eatsmart.
(oops I see I already linked to the video, more coffee please...)
Zoe, the discussion came back when Nena commented on it. please feel free to "revive" any old discussions you find helpful by commenting on them.
and the visual of the amount of carbs in such a small portion of pasta makes me think about portion sizes.
