This app came out this summer by [url=http://www.fooducate.com/]Fooducate[/url] for diabetics. This handy app - which is advertised as 'like having a dietitian on speed dial' helps control your carbs, lose weight, eat real food (I mean - I refuse to eat 'diet' food - I'm a real woman of the world).[br][br]Fooducate [url=http://www.fooducate.com/app#page=browse]grades[/url] your groceries to help you chose the healthiest option, explains what's really inside your choice, and offers healthier alternatives for people living with diabetes.[br][br]One of my question is (and I'm going to be asking them about it), as a Canadian, where we don't have all the same products in our groceries, will a version for nonAmericans come out in the near future? I have to admit, my DH has an iPhone, and he has an app that sometimes helps us when I don't have the packaging to figure out carbs/calories. He just has to scan the label and/or bar code - and we get the results for the food. [br][br]So, are you using this app or something similar? How helpful is it to your diabetes control? Maybe I'll toss away my "old fashioned" cell phone and get with the times! I mean you can teach an old cat new tricks - right?[br][br][img=442x251]http://ams.body1.com/assets/FatCatAnna/fooducate.jpeg[/img][br][br][br][br]
