Diabetes Meal Planner is a significantly updated version of Version 2.0 of the Glycemic Index Meal Planner for Web 2.0. It features a much larger database, which has been a concern of earlier users. The new version, which includes licensed material from the American Diabetes Association for a royalty (hence the increased price), has over 2000 food items compared to 975 food items in the last version. Further data from the web has allowed us to add additional food items and add Calorie, Protein, Fat, and Saturated Fat data per food Item to the database. The version 2.0 of the Glycemic Index Meal Planner was a complete rewrite of Version 1 of the software using Web 2.0. It is important to understand that the Glycemic Index of a food item involves human testing of at least ten people on a restricted diet eating fairly large quantities of the food item and having their blood sugar tested over a period of time. It cannot be determined by simple chemical testing. This software calculates the overall Glycemic Index (GI) and Glycemic Load (GL) for individual meals and for the entire day to help build a healthy diet for: ? diabetes ? weight loss ? sports performance It also provides: ? carbohydrate ? calorie ? protein ? fat analysis ? future meal planning for food items by meal and day. The Glycemic Index - a measure of carbohydrate quality based on how quickly food raises blood glucose (blood sugar) levels - is a dietary key to health, say the authors of The New Glucose Revolution. Low-GI foods, by virtue of their slow digestion and absorption, produce gradual rises in blood sugar and insulin levels, and have proven benefits for health. The Glycemic Index is highly recommended by Atkins, Fat Flush, and South Beach diets. A method of saving historical full meal information for future access allows easy reconstruction of the user''s typical meals. Once these favorites are built, it is an easy matter to build a new day’'s meal plan, including the ability to modify each favorite for today. Meal planning can be done for the next week. The software also provides a complete history of previous day’'s meals to ease current day planning.
