I have an old copy (4th Edition) of Carbs and Cals for Diabetics and wondered whether it has been updated, or whether there is something better. It must have pictures of food, because I have no idea what 35 grams of anything is. Any ideas would be welcome.

I like to have it handy 'just in case'. I don't have a smart phone for apps, but my son has just given me an iPad - I'll have to ask him if I can put apps on that. Thanks novorapidboi.

Also the My Fitness Pal App is really helpful. You can actually scan product packages to find out exact carb information.
