Subject: RE: [IP] carb counting & high protein meal

  >> I have a larger than normal size piece of meat, how do I bolus?<<

My CDE said the first 3 oz of meat were free and to count 15 carbs for every
3 oz after that. YMMV

Betsy, I have never heard of being told to bolus for any protein.!!  My
understanding is to bolus for your carb count, and perhaps a unit or two for
any fat content in a food, like when you eat pizza.
