Greetings;

I ran across someone on the diabetic connect site which helped me by mentioning a site called "SparkPeople.com". I looked into it and sure enough it is free and great-I just recently signed up for it and am glad I did. Did I mention that it is free? (that is great, especially in this world where diet seems to costs)

Great for weight loss and diabetes control.

Look into it and see what you think.

Carol

I signed up last mont but have problems finding the things I want on there. someone had metioned it for looking up and entering a recipe and getting all the information for that recipe for calories carbs and what not but I have yet to find where to go on there to do that.

I'm signed up, too, for several years now. It is a weight loss site. It definitely isn't geared to persons with diabetes, but they do have good exercise information. I don't know, though, Carol. If you saw something about Diabetes control on there, its a new one on me.

On the site go into Health conditions-conditions-Diabetes. I am on the SparkD Diabetes Management Program there and on the Spark People 8 week Diabetes Weight Loss Challenge. On the Management Program site there are plenty of articles and things to read on it. Recipes on Spark People are also geared toward Diabetes. Plenty of people on Spark People have Diabetes plus other health problems along with it. Good site.

Thanks, Carol, for the update. I aprecate it very much. I'll have to check it out, although with the Sites here I don't have much available time. I know it will be worthwhile when I can get to it. ;-)

I know- I work nights and I have to make time for online and exercise-exercise being the most done. But, I still get on both sites. SparkPeople is actually fun.

I already am signed up with spark people and get stuff emailed from them in my inbox. Most everything they do looks good. But I seem to remember that they are not geared to Persons With Diabetes, particularly, so sometimes you have to take some of their advice with a grain of salt.
