Cook & Count Carbs
The Android version of this app is now
available on the GooglePlay app store.
Cook & Count Carbs is a nutritional
app for people with diabetes specifically
designed for use with home cooking.
Some people with Type 1 diabetes use
ready meals or processed foods because
they can read the carb amounts on the
packaging and feel safer judging their
insulin doses having that knowledge. Now
they can cook any recipe they like, see the
carbs per portion, and save it in their own
digital recipe book.
It's also great for educating calorie
awareness and portion control for those
with Type 2 diabetes, or wishing to lose
weight. Portion control and awareness are
moving higher up on the obesity agenda.
The Cochrane systematic review on
portion sizes published recently is a huge
review of studies between 1993 and 2013
showing that most portion sizes have
increased over time. And portion sizing
significantly influences how much we eat.
The app is designed by Deborah
Wilder, now the director of Health Apps
Ltd, who is the mother of a type 1 GET COOKING: Images of
