    Had an orange this afternoon - which was around 30g carbs - but it was good! The day's total so far is 58g, so in the grand scheme of things, not too bad?

    Hello @s.sollis I use myfitnesspal.com to keep a food diary. It helps me to monitor my carbs, calories and weight loss progress. I must admit I usually eat more than I have done today. I think today was quite unusual

    Oh right, I would be so hungry if I just ate that. Are you trying to lose weight?

    LOL . Never met a dietitian yet who didn't recommend that Eatwell plate diet - the diet that insists on carbs with every meal and which raised my BG to late 20s/ early 30s.
