I use the diabetic friendly site, but my biggest complaint is I do a lower carb diet than the 150 recommended so my food report always says I am too low in carbs. BUT I just ignore it. emoticon

Hi, M

We do have a special section of the site that focuses on diabetes:

www.sparkpeople.com/resource/health_condit
ions.asp?condition=9


It includes a lot of general info about the condition, a list of all our articles related to it, and a section with appropriate recipes. Here's the page where you can set up how you participate in the program:

Hope this helps.

Coach Dean

I have been diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome which often leads to diabetes. My husband was just diagnosed with type 1 diabetes and we both need to count our carbohydrates per day. Its frustrating that SP doesn't offer a meal plan option that we can use. Its difficult to change you diet and think of options like spaghetti squash instead of spaghetti noodles. I know there are others on this site that would appreciate this option too.

Thank you,
Charles and Michelle
