Re: [IPk] Carb Counter Advice please



What about the Carbs and Cals App for a smartphone? You can download the
whole database to your phone so you don't need a connection to use it. Also
maybe 'cooler' than getting out a carb counter book.  I don't recommend the
Carbs and Cals book as it is too big and very heavy.
