Participants must record how many carbohydrates they eat -- every time they eat -- for a week.
Ellen H Ullman, MSW's insight:

It still misses what it's like to have high and low blood sugar.  Parents who constantly complain to their children about not taking good enough care of their diabetes, should do this exercise routinely!

Helene Wild's curator insight, November 6, 2013 10:19 PM

If you are working with people with diabetes and do not have personal experience of living daily life with diabetes, you may find that your patients/clients benefit from the empathy and the insights you can gain from trying this strategy. It wont include hypos, injecting, testing, costs, medication, the endless round of seeing a myriad HCP's, but it will give you some idea about the judgements and daily restrictions.

Why counting calories is guesswork at best

Some food and vitamin labels are not just misleading, but downright wrong. And the government is partly to blame.

Ellen H Ullman, MSW's comment, November 7, 2013 9:53 PM
Class II nutrients are vitamins, minerals, protein, total carbohydrate, dietary fiber, other carbohydrate, polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fat, or potassium that occur naturally in a food product. Class II nutrients must be present at 80% or more of the value declared on the label. As an example: If vitamin C is a naturally occurring nutrient in a product, and the product declares 10% DV vitamin C (i.e., 6 mg/serving) on its label, then laboratory analysis must find at least 80% of the label value (80% of 6 mg or 4.8 mg vitamin C/serving) for the product to be in compliance.<br><br>The Third Group nutrients include calories, sugars, total fat, saturated fat, cholesterol, and sodium. However, for products (e.g., fruit drinks, juices, and confectioneries) with a sugars content of 90 percent or more of total carbohydrate, to prevent labeling anomalies due in part to rounding, FDA treats total carbohydrate as a Third Group nutrient instead of a Class II nutrient. For foods with label declarations of Third Group nutrients, the ratio between the amount obtained by laboratory analysis and the amount declared on the product label in the Nutrition Facts panel must be 120% or less, i.e., the label is considered to be out of compliance if the nutrient content of a composite of the product is greater than 20% above the value declared on the label. For example, if a laboratory analysis found 8 g of total fat/serving in a product that stated that it contained 6 g of total fat/serving, the ratio between the laboratory value and the label value would be (8 / 6) x 100 = 133%, and the product label would be considered to be out of compliance.<br><br>Reasonable excesses of class I and II nutrients above labeled amounts and reasonable deficiencies of the Third Group nutrients are usually considered acceptable by the agency within good manufacturing practices. http://www.fda.gov/Food/GuidanceRegulation/GuidanceDocumentsRegulatoryInformation/LabelingNutrition/ucm063113.htm
