I'm newly diagnosed (Sep) type 2. I bought the annual plan of FitDay and log my food religiously. It lets me see my grams of carbs for each item. I just add them up to ensure I'm within the range my dietitian recommended for each meal. I double check by reading labels. I'm numbers oriented and this works better for me than visualizing portions. For many, that's the easiest way to go.
Also, track my calories and have gone from 180 lbs to 158 since September. That's been a big plus for my blood pressure and cholesterol. Probably also helps my glucose numbers. Doctor has indicated I may be able to stop taking my medication for diabetes after next blood work in February.
