# Re: [IPk] CHO v UNITS OF INSULIN

Hi Heather

I was given a some really useful sheets by the dietician of various food.
Apparently 1/2 Cup of cooked pasta = 15g CHO.  What I did was measure how
many serving spoonfuls I ate into a measuring jug that has cup measures on
and then was able to easily work out my serving.  If your jug doesn't have
cup measurements on 1/2 cup is a fraction below 1/4 pint.  Have a look for a
cheap plastic jug and you may get lucky.

Good luck
Karen
