I am not new to CK, but have done the carbo creep slide over the past year. Diagnosed a few years ago with pre-Diabetes, I "lost" that designation with my next fasting glucose after changing my diet and losing 40 pounds.
I've gained about 15 of those pounds back and am re-centering myself with diet.
One of my frustrations with the CK program is the Food Diary. I eat almost no processed or packaged foods, so the endless lists of brand name foods are of no use to me.
When I want to create a meal, I have to do it on paper and then load it into the program which seems very clunky and has led me away from using the Food Diary.
I could not find any values for a pureed vegetable soup made from homemade vegetarian borth....and when I began to create one, I could not find cooked onions, only raw. I know the values of vegetables change when they are cooked and this seemed like a pretty basic food stuff.
What are folks who eat whole foods, homecooked foods, and few packaged foods doing with the Food Diary?
