PalmPilot Program Counts Carbs

| Nov 1, 2001

If you're breaking your back—or calculator—trying to compute the carbohydrates in every meal in order to set your insulin dose, then work no more. Family Health Publications of Costa Mesa, California, is now offering a software program that counts the amount of carbohydrates in the most common type of foods, including fast food. The program can by uploaded on to a PalmPilot, where the carbohydrate count, in addition to calorie, fat and protein content of a selected food pops up on the screen.

The software costs $11.95 and can be downloaded from the company's Web site www.calorieking.com. If you do not have a PalmPilot but would like the information in print, you can purchase the book version entitled "The Doctor's Pocket Calorie, Fat & Carbohydrate Counter" for $7 on the company's Web site or by contacting Family Health Publications at (949) 642-8500.
