    All I do is weight my carbs, however most of my meals are at home so it’s a bit easier than when I eat out. I generally find there is more fat and sugars when I eat out compared to home cooked food, not good for people who eat out a lot!

    Carbs and Cals was first published as a book (see Amazon) but is also available as an app. It gives a reasonable insight into carb levels in meals. The app version also allows recording of carb intake in meals.

    Before each meal and before bed is the standard. Remember you can not improve (your BGL) if you are not measuring.
