Overview

Eat Carbs With Confidence! It is important to eat about the same amount of carbohydrates during each meal or snack to keep your blood glucose levels within a targeted range. But you may wonder what foods contain carbohydrates and in what amounts?

SureCount provides the information you need to make informed carbohydrate choices for successful diabetes management.

Whether you have prediabetes, gestational diabetes, Type 1 or Type 2 Diabetes, or just want or need to maintain a consistent, regulated carbohydrate intake at mealtime, SureCount provides a quick and easy reference guide.

SureCount is also valuable for those who care and cook for diabetics as it functions as a diabetes meal planner.

SureCount offers a practical and ordered listing for hundreds of every day carbohydrate foods within these 12 categories:
Dairy, Cereals, Grains, Juices, Dried Fruits, Fruits, Beans, Vegetables, Snack Foods, Sweets, Free Foods and Combination Foods.

Every food item is standardized to 1 carbohydrate serving (15 grams of carbohydrates). This makes it easy to quickly choose foods and portion sizes that are within your health provider's recommendations for daily carbohydrate intake at breakfast, lunch, dinner and even when choosing snacks between mealtimes.

This book has 15 pages. The first couple of pages advises the quantity of carbs men and women should have and it's way too high. If you are diabetic or have pre diabetes, you should never have the number of carbs suggested. Next is a page each showing foods with 15 carbs each and there are several pages of this - like a grains page, fruit page, a page with beans etc. This is not the book to be able to look up a carb count of a particular food.

I was told I have prediabetes and have read that is is possible to reverse this with diet and exercise. Obviously what I am doing is not working  but I didnt know what changes to make. I have found SureCount helpful and educational as it has taught me about carbohydrate foods and portion sizes. I now feel more confident because I have referenced SureCount so many times that I know what foods and what portion amounts keep me in my safe carbohydrate zone. I still have prediabetes but do not have diabetes and am working hard to keep my  carbohydrate intake consistent and within my doctor's recommendations so SureCount helps me do that!
