    make that 2 questions!

    When it refers to half a cup is that like a tea cup or mug or is it a weight i dont know about i know years ago my mum had a cookbook that weighed stuff in cups and it turned out to be a measurement.

    a "cup" is 250ml in our measurements.

    Try your local £1 shop, they had sets of all cups and measuring spoons in funky neon colours last week. Or if stuck, use a measuring jug in the interim.

    You can find "weight" carb coverters and I know that the newest version of Atkins for the UK had the grams in the allowable salad lists. I think the allowable salads was like 230- 340g a day of certain veggies.

    The US cup measure I bought back from Canada is larger than ours, mine equated more to a coffee mug over here. Squash is OK but not on induction I don't think. I'd have to go and check that one though. I think it's not allowed until OWL.

    I went and checked it, BNS is one of the higher carb squashes, here is everything you wanted to know about squashes.

    Yes Debs, you should be getting the majority of your carbs from green salad leaves during induction.
