So, after my "incident" a few months ago, a nurse entered my room and informed me I'm diabetic. I'm now looking for a good app for my Kindle that will show me carb counts, for when I'm eating out.

Running search gives about a zillion hits and I would like to narrow the selection down just a bit. If any of you guys know of any good apps please let me know.
Thanks.

I think this will work on a Kindle.

Might also try My Fitness Pal. It will scan bar codes and give a complete breakdown of calories, carbs. etc. plus you can input your workout and it will give values for it. I used it to track protein to get my grams up a bit. Worked great.

FWIW, it's a huge shift in diet but many have turned heart disease and diabetes around by diet. Not an easy route but life changing and life extending.

A co-worker of mine with the same problem has hired a personal trainer.

He is really dropping the weight now. I have to give him credit. He get's up at 5 in the morning before work so he has time to work out. And he is right, that is about the only time you have the energy to do it!

I also recommended watching the documentary, Forks over Knives.
Not political. Just factual.

I to am working out each day at around 5:00am. I didn't start out very heavy to begin with (170-175), and am just now back up to 157 lb.s after going well below that. My diabetes nurse-counselor stated "Lawdog, I don't get to ever tell this to people, but boy,you need to gain some weight!"
To me that sounded like a ringing endorsement for gobbling up some chocolate-covered-twinkle-dinkies but she seems to think I just need larger portions of healthful foods. Nurses........

Thank you all so much for the app suggestions. I will be getting a few of them and It's always nice to learn from the experiences of others who have been there.
Again, thank you.
