    Your mum or yourself can down load the carbs and cals app, it is fantastic when you’re carb counting

    When I was diagnosed last month I was eating 60-70 carbs, but now that I’m going back to my normal schedule I’m eating 40-60 carbs so that I don’t eat to much or too many un-needed carbs. I hope that helps.
