Food Exchange Calculator
The food exchange calculator analyses the carbohydrates, proteins and fats in grams and calories.
By grounding your foot in the diabetes exchange, you can use the food exchange calculator to work out how much carbohydrate, protein and fat is contained in your meal.
The exchanges covered include starch, vegetables, fruit, milk, meat and fat. This tool is designed to help people with diabetes manage their diet.
Losing weight and eating healthily are two of the concrete goals of diabetes management for most patients. A ‘food exchange’ is a type of eating plan that uses a variety of serving sizes as the basic building blocks of the diet.
The servings are equal in terms of calories, so people with diabetes can choose which food to eat and which to exchange. The food exchange is designed to provide variety, eat healthily and keep diets interesting.
