Yep prisoners really wasn't the word for that time! HA! I just got through it. Loved my mom but really HATED those scales!! May you go far in the dietetics but like you I wouldn't touch clinical diatetics! HA!
Oh yeah. And I had to eat breakfast at 6am, lunch an 11:30, snack at 4pm, dinner at 6pm, snack at 8pm and in bed at 9pm. EVERY day. Even when there was no school. From the time I was 11 till after I graduated high school. Diabetes was the great ruler of my universe. But my mom says all those years of good behavior probably bought me extra health years.
Ya' know she is probably right but oh how we hated it! HA! That scedule! I used to have "cornflake weak spells" Just so I could get a bowl of Cornflakes when I wanted them! LOVED THEM! Now not so much! But really funny how we did and what we did then! HA!
HAD is the key word here! I dont weigh my food anymore. I do measure things such as grains into a measuring cup. Remember the awful plastic food the nutritionist used to teach about carbs and calories and exchanges? Well, it wasnt bad for learning to approximate things. Since I count carbs and not calories, I look at the label or my guide and measure if I need a reminder.
I remember my mom had a big white scale that sat on the counter. I think we always countd carbs though. I also remember being on a strict schedule. 30 for breakfast, 15 for snacks, 49 for lunch and dinner. I got D in between first and second grade. The teacher used to make me sit outside the classroom when it was my snack time. Interesting how certain memories pop up.....
