Our body and health have a close connection with what we eat. People with diabetes can manage their condition with healthy eating habits. Diet is a key factor in dealing with diabetes or other chronic diseases. However, it is sometimes very difficult to manage the macronutrients for a balanced diet. Some people tend to reduce their carbohydrate intake thinking that this could help them losing weight or fight diabetes. However, there is no conclusive evidence to prove this statement. According to various studies, people with diabetes can choose carbohydrates that are higher in fiber and eat more fresh foods rather than processed foods.

For some people, counting macronutrients imply reading the nutritional labels on packaging, estimating portions to fill a logbook. Even with a smartphone application dedicated to manual counting, this task becomes tedious with time. Balanced nutrition is difficult, yet it is the best tool for prevention and maintaining our health. With Dietsensor, a click on the sensor enables its users to know exactly whether the food meets their nutritional goals. They can also control effortlessly and precisely the composition and balance of their meals.

Mango is no longer a forbidden fruit for diabetics

In past, nutritionists have debated inclusion of mango in diet for diabetics because researches stated that carbs present in it were mostly simple sugars that got readily absorbed in bloodstream vis-a-vis complex carbohydrates. Studies also stated that 30 per cent of sugar in mango is fruit sugar fructose which is metabolized in liver and is seen to raise one’s triglyceride levels. Both these facts (now with a solution) made the mango disappear from the plate of diabetics.

Studies suggest that the solution for mango lovers is to have a single serving of fruit of 15gm of carbohydrates for diabetes and below 25gm for pre-diabetes, which is half a small mango. Thus, the solution lies in « portion control » and not in the practice of restraining oneself from eating those yummy mangoes. 

So why portion control matters ? When you have type 2 diabetes, you need to gauge portion sizes correctly, so you know how many calories and carbohydrates you’re taking in and how they’ll affect your blood sugar. Learning what a portion size actually is – and eating that amount – is tricky. People are notoriously bad at estimating what, say, a cup of breakfast cereal looks like. Let’s make it simple ! Meet the DietSensor app, the smart food scanner which pairs via Bluetooth with the SCiO sensor, and which has a small infrared sensor on one end. DietSensor is a handheld scanner that connects to an app on your smartphone via Bluetooth. When you point it at the mango and click, it’s able to detect its nutritional value and send a detailed report straight to your phone via Bluetooth in seconds.

From calorie count and carbohydrate percentage to fat and protein levels, this tiny food psychic can determine the chemical makeup of both food and drink to give you a real, and often stark, insight into the grub you’re about to eat.  Isn’t it amazing ? Being able to know exactly what’s in every mouthful of food you eat is every dieter’s dream. This incredible DietSensor is about to make that dream a reality.
