Message from Christine:
We've added a Body Calculator to the Diabetes Tools link above. Use it to calculate:
Calories needed to maintain body weight,
Body Mass Index (indicator for disease based on body weight),
Ideal body weight based on height & frame size
Please let me know what other tools would be useful in this area:Diabetes Tools

This week's question for your nutrition blog:
From: Sheila T. (e-mail not disclosed for privacy)
Subject: rye or sourdough bread?
My husband has diabetes and we always eat whole wheat bread but wanted something different for a change. Is rye bread or sourdough bread as good of an option as whole wheat?
After you answer a question on your blog please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with the link (so we know that you posted). The deadline
is every Sunday at midnight. We will post several responses in our next newsletter!Example: Christine's Blog
