Keep in mind that that one serving is one of maybe 6-12 "starch" servings most people hve in a day. Even moderately low-carb (under 100 grams carb/day) plans allow 1-2 servings of starch in a meal.

But yeah, I commiserate with you on how confusing the measuring is, and how small the portions. It's been an eye-opener for me to see how little rice or pasta I can eat for the calories (and the blood sugar spike, for me). More and more, like Carter, I find myself avoiding the rice altogether and serving the meat and veg over chopped cauliflower (cauli-rice) or greens.
