To help me watch what I eat I have been using Calorie Count. Calorie Count is a great app that tracks, what you eat, your activity throughout the day and how much water you consume. Calorie Count is my personal favorite but you can find a number of websites or applications by searching for calorie tracker. The apps also come in very handy when you are out to dinner and have no idea what the carbohydrate count is on the food you just ordered. I'm a technology guy so I love to use my phone but for those without a phone can use The Calorie King Calorie, Fat and Carbohydrate Counter. This book fits in the palm of your hand and has stats for every food you can think of.
It doesn't matter if your a world class athlete or just a normal person worried about the food you eat, a calorie tracking app is a great thing. I don't want to be one that expects my pump to do everything for me but I would love for my pump and the Calorie Count app to communicate. Rather than just knowing the number of carbohydrates I'm about to eat I'd love for my pump to know that I was just on the bike for two hours or that I'm about to eat a huge bowl of pasta. By knowing what food I eat the pump could set either a normal bolus or a dual wave. I know that this technology is just around the corner!! I can't wait!!
