I love this discussion. My vote goes to the PLATE.
If I'm correct, the Diabetes society just not long time ago, offers now that instead of counting carbohydrates, you can do the plate method.
Here is how the plate should look like:
HALF - our FREE Non-starchy vegetables
QUARTER - whole-grains and/ or starchy vegetables
QUARTER - lean protein.
This is the plate I'm following now. I make sure I get my whole grains either on the plate, or as snack.
No counting points, no calories, no carbs
JUST a colorful Plate.
I like the plate method so much!
