laurenpincusrd A10: Definitely! I takes guesswork out of how food affects you. Also, food record keepers low more wt. #diabeteschat https://t.co/EYETOhmZ9B
tennine8seven6 A10. Not for me. Makes it too much of a science project and can be overwhelming and stressful #DiabetesChat
bmarketingmaven I want to try the zucchini spaghetti I would love to find one of those veggie cutters to make spaghetti #diabeteschat

nutritionjill Yep RT @lotsofchoices: #diabeteschat A10 I think food records are helpful especially for people to see their habits.
lotsofchoices #diabeteschat Thanks for the chat!
dietexpertnj A10: I like to have clients write out foods/meals in advance- that way u can access it b4 eating it! #diabeteschat
nutritionjill @Krille007 depends on too many variables. Must measure b4 & after. Must be own detective. #diabeteschat
coolngroovyjc @CDiabetesInfo: Have you tried using an app to track weight loss / food ?? #diabeteschat@nutritionjill I have UP jawbone app clunky
laurenpincusrd Serving size for banana is 1/2, for strawberries 1 1/4 cups. Bananas are dense, need to watch portion size. #diabeteschat @Krille007
nutritionjill I use a FitBit & LoseIt. #diabeteschat
cdiabetesinfo Follow and pin us over on Pinterest #DiabetesChathttp://t.co/q2BJnXZ64p
jenniferneily Do you like the FitBit? #diabeteschat https://t.co/eOfk0kzmi2
curet1diabetes @Krille007 @nutritionjill @CDiabetesInfo @primetimeparent Depends upon how ripe, the size of fruit & the individual #diabeteschat – use CGM
nutritionjill @LaurenPincusRD @Krille007 Highly variable. Depends on person, time of day, what else is eaten, how much eaten, BG level etc #diabeteschat

pinkhippo13 @primetimeparent @nutritionjill Not sure #diabeteschat
laurenpincusrd I like it but question it’s accuracy. It’s a motivator more than anything. #diabeteschat https://t.co/Av6Y9l0hLs
twicediabetes @CureT1Diabetes Yeah, I always forget that it’s an advertising thing ’til I’ve commented on something & then notice the ads. #diabeteschat
cdiabetesinfo Check out @Cdiabetesinfo’s website http://t.co/4VFJpEzSbh for great #DiabetesChat
jenniferneily @LaurenPincusRD Interesting! i was wondering about FitBit accuracy! I always feel they overestimate…. #diabeteschat
coolngroovyjc #diabeteschat @nutritionjill WW worked for me yrs ago. But not since type2. Too much emphasis on calories
laurenpincusrd @JenniferNeily Funny, I think mine is under. Don’t think I walk only 6000 steps after 10 hours at a trade show. #diabeteschat
nutritionjill Love it, especially for sleep tracking. RT @JenniferNeily: Do you like the FitBit? #diabeteschat http://t.co/pkX53OdbTc
