[IP] carb counting beans


How do you carb count for beans?  My dietition advised counting half the
carbs for beans as they are so high in protein as well.
I had 1-1/2 cups of kidney beans with 1-1/2 c. chedddar cheese on top. 
The carbs for this amount of kidneys are 60 Gm.  I bolused for half that
amount and am hypo 1-1/2 hours later.  Any other experiences with beans?
