RE: [IP] carb counting (was not eating--just 'cause)



Not everyone does but:

I was told to not bolus for protein under 3oz.
However for every ounce over 3oz count as 5g.

So a 12oz Steak at a restaurant would be 9oz extra.
9x5 = 45g.  So I would bolus as if it was 45g.  Normally I would do this
with a square over 4-6hours since protein takes longer to digest.

However other people may do this differently, as always Your Mileage May
Vary(YMMV).
