Americans eat way too much sugar — here’s where it comes from

The new dietary guidelines allow even less sugar than you think.

Read the full article at: www.marketwatch.com

The guidelines, which the Department of Health and Human Services and the U.S. Department of Agriculture release every five years, put an emphasis on healthy food “patterns” that include nutritious options and state that no more than 10% of the calories in one’s diet should come from added sugar. According to Despina Hyde, a registered dietitian and diabetes educator in weight management center at New York University, the label on your yogurt has upwards 25 grams of sugar, just at breakfast you’re getting half of your daily sugar allotment. Consuming large amounts of sugar has been linked to diseases suck as Type II diabetes and obesity, not only because of the calories in sugar, but also because one would have to also eat other foods in order to have adequate nutrients. Diet sensor is the first instant nutrition coaching app for diabetics, with sensors able to tell within seconds the nutritional values of a food or beverage and give immediate advice, of the quantity of what you should eat from your plate based on your goals. For those times when you need to log non-homogeneous foods, you’ll have access to our extensive, ever-expanding food database with over 600,000 food items from 19 countries (in 12 languages!) with ultrafast bar-code scanning. The SCiO bluetooth connected molecular sensor is a pocket-sized device that, using near infrared spectroscopy, allows DietSensor to determine the chemical makeup of food and drink . DietSensor builds spectrometric models that translate the resulted information into something really useful – a calorie count and the percentage of carbohydrates, fat, protein and alcohol contained in your food. This is all quickly sent and clearly displayed on the DietSensor app on your smartphone. You can pre-order today on: www.dietsensor.com/wait-list

Starch and Root Vegetables and Diabetes

There are a whole range of root vegetables and most of them are also starches  – a type of carbohydrate. Basically, some plants store glucose as starch – giant chains of sugars.

So when it comes to root vegetables and starches, are they safe for type 2 diabetics to eat or not?

Even if there isn’t a great deal of evidence to show benefits of root veggies for type 2 diabete, having a wider variety of foods keeps things interesting and it also provides a wider range of vitamins, minerals and nutrients to the body.

As this article sums well: the thing that influences blood sugar and A1C the most is the total carbohydrates consumed. 


The bad news is that cooked root and starchy vegetables don’t come with a label and you need to look for nutrition facts on the web or in diet apps, but these facts ignore the butter, oil or water that were incorporated.


The good news is that DietSensor will be able to read the cells of such cooked foods. As long as it remains homogeneous, any fat or water incorporated will be seen by the sensor and the resulting nutrition facts will be added to your meal with a mere click of a button.

Type 1 Diabetes: An Unrelenting Disease

All of those factors make getting the right amount of insulin a difficult balancing act. Too much insulin can cause blood sugar levels to dip dangerously low, leading to confusion and mood changes, or even seizures and death, according to JDRF (formerly called the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation). Too little insulin leaves blood sugar levels too high.

Over time — in addition to making someone feel tired and thirsty — high blood sugar levels can eventually lead to a higher risk of long-term complications, such as heart disease, vision problems and kidney disease, the ADA says.

People with type 1 diabetes have to become nutrition experts and learn how to count the carbohydrates in their food. It’s the carbohydrates in foods that get processed into blood sugar in the body. Then they need to learn a mathematical formula to figure out how much insulin they’ll need.

Insulin pumps may help with the math, but they don’t do all the work — not yet, anyway.

How comes that the first thing that affects blood sugar (carb consumption) is the least automatized part of diabetes management? The idea at the root of the DietSensor’s project was exactly this one. We can go on the moon, we can instantly connect to anybody on the planet, but we have nothing to tell us the carbs in our plates. For many of us, THIS is a vital information. Let’s change this. Let’s make DietSensor a tool able to change lives!

Carb counting is far from obvious. When it comes to portion sizing, DietSensor is the only solution that takes the guesswork out of it. Why learn carb% accurately or read labels when the result is 50% inaccurate due to a 50% error in the portion estimation.

DietSensor is able to connect with a food scale using Bluetooth open technology. It already connects with the only scale of that kind on the market – the Nutriscale from Reflex Wireless. Although DietSensor works perfectly fine without the use of a scale, it is our goal to make our Scan & Weigh logging experience available anywhere, even at restaurants. We are currently working on this feature, so please stay tuned for more information at www.dietsensor.com.

Carb Counting Methods Explained

This article wisely recommends eating a whole foods anti-inflammatory diet that is lower in carbohydrates.As they say, one key point to mention is that following this style of diet means that most of the foods you eat WILL NOT COME IN A PACKET! This means the majority of the foods you eat will not have a food label. Broccoli, carrots and kale don’t need a food label. That’s where DietSensor can help a little. If you want to learn carb % by scanning your food or if you already know them approximately but want to gain accuracy, DietSensor will provide numbers with a mere click of a button.
