This is very frustrating. I have insulin resistance (headed toward diabetes) and could never in a million years lose weight if I ate 50% of my meals in carbs, and my husband is full blown diabetic. Sparkspeople has it's diabetic setting to 50% carbs each meal. Seriously? No one with any true knowledge of full blown diabetes would recommend 50% of calories in a meal be eaten as carbs. We have been to several classes at our local hospital and no way would they recommend that. If my husband ate 50% of his meals as carbs, his blood sugar would be through the roof and it's not in any way what his doctor would recommend. Also, the fat settings are so dang low. We get most of our fat from good fats like avocado, olive oils, coconut oil, etc, but these setting in my humble opinion are NOT healthy for a true diabetic. And what's worse, is you can't adjust them properly.
