meal plans platform

Hi there, I am new to this community and I have a sister (16) who was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. As I am trying to make up more healthy and balanced meals while counting carbs and measuring BG, I was wondering whether any of you has ever used an online platform that generates meal plans according to personal characteristics and health status?

  • Have a look on diabetes.org.uk and xperthealth.org.uk for lots of great advice on diabetes and how to watch the carb intake. You say your sister is 16 and type 2, it is unusual although not unknown, for someone so young to get T2. Has she been given any advice by her diabetic nurse or GP?

    I use MyFitnessPal to log my food although I don't do it all the time. I don't test either as my 6 monthly HbA1c is good but if your sister's levels are high then she may have to test regularly, although I would say not to get too hung up on them if she has one or two that may seem higher than they should be. This happens but T2s still make insulin and our bodies kick in to help deal with any highs or lows.

    I'd also recommend the Carbs & Cals app and book by Chris Cheyette it contains pictures of different foods and the portion sizes with the carbs and cals listed for each.

  • Hi, ceejayblue,

    thank you for your answer. I did some research along the lines of apps to help with carbs intake and I found another app, called DietBundle. They seem to process loads of personal data, health markers (for diabetes too), BMI, calories, the amount of exercise one does and make up hyper personalized meal plans for 21 days. Beside that, they provide shopping lists, diet summary seems to be quite an unique app. I will try it.
