I don't measure my food....
If anything I measure myself, both my blood sugar and my weight.
If I'm gaining weight, time to review where the calories are coming from.
If my blood sugar is high, then carbs need to be cut.
Hey, at the moment I have been weighing my meat and veges, but I guess this is only because I have just started low-carb about a month ago and I also like to make sure I am eating enough to fuel me to my next meal without snacking. In a typical day I would eat:
bf 200g veges, eggs w/cream, cheese, sometimes bacon
lunch 200g veges, 100-200g tuna, eggs, cheese (or cream cheese)
dinner 200-250g chicken/beef, 200g veges, cheese again :P , mayo or other sauces
desert WW Jelly and cream
Sometimes if i am going to the gym/walking etc I might also have an apple or something.
Oh and when I am cooking for my partner and myself I cook the same thing and measured mine, but not his or give him a little extra cheese/cream/meat as he is bigger than me.
Also if you want to try more interesting low carb recipes try this site: http://www.genaw.com/lowcarb/ Linda has figured out the varb/protein/fat of all the recipes so you don't even need to do it yourself =)
I love Linda's recipes.
I bought the scale that Tu Diabetes recommends, but my life is so frenetic running my kids to campus and back plus cooking for the family and hitting the gym. I have to start weighing my salads. I think that the volume gets me. I don't think that I could eat an apple. I haven't tried fruit in 2.75 years. I'm not on insulin, yet.
