I wish the food diary had sugars so that diabetic people like myself could keep easier track of how much we're taking in.

You can. Go to Settings in the very upper right corner. Click on Diary Settings. Select sugar from the drop down menu.

Use Stevia or Truvia so you can keep those calories down. Stevia has 0 sugar in it. It is 200 times sweeter than granulated. It is natural from a plant grown in South America. It even has nutritional value to it.

You now can buy packets in Walmarts (at least in our town you can). Otherwise you will find it in health food stores. VERY safe. Nothing artificial about it.

Truvia is not pure stevia. You might want to do a little research before recommending this highly processed product.

Just a hint - I track my fasting blood sugar and just figured out with someones help on here.. you can track it and show the results in a report form as well... I will have to go back and check but i THINK if you go to check in.. where it has track weight etc on the left... actually let me go back and get it right... hang on..

go to check in ... at the bottom there is a link that says "Track additional measurements".. click on it and title it whatever you want, i.e., fasting blood sugar (i have 2 set.. one for fasting, one for 2 hr post eating) and you can then enter your blood sugar levels whenever you want and can see it in a report form to watch how its going...

(and as somebody up there said.. you can change what you track in your diary as well thru the settings.. i changed mine to show carbs and sugar in my daily food diary as well).. Hope this helps a little!

I realize that truvia is not pure stevia. The stevia is from the stem of the plant (not as sweet as the leaf) and it is mixed with granulated sugar. It still does not have as many calories as sugar alone. White granulated sugar has been processed, but when we have sugar in little bits, it is not harmful like artificial sugars are.
