    My understanding is that they changed the formula a few years back so they also contain less sugar...

    That would also explain why I need more of it now to bring my sugars up than I used to.

    Your dog is cute by the way :)

    My Carb Counting eating out is usually pretty good but I sure do make mistakes sometimes. The course actually helped me to be less hard on myself and experiment more. I still like to peruse the menu at home first and try and pick an easy meal to add up - but also “wing it” on occassion.

    I need to learn to be less hard on myself as well.
    The I always go for stuff which involves pasta or potato. The worst things probably (please don't tell me off lol)

    What part of the UK are you from? If you don't mind me asking :)

    I’m actually an Aussie! I just find this forum so much better and more interactive then the Australian version.

    I definitely still love my carbs and usually find carb heavy pasta/potato meals easier to dose for then some meals with hidden carbs. One advantage of T1 eat what you want just dose appropriately.

    Sorry, I just assumed you were in the UK.
    Yes that is true :) I don't have much of a sweet tooth which is good. My dentist loves me and says I have such good teeth haha XD
