Food Exchange Diet Planner, is a tool to create and test balanced diet plans based on the food exchange scheme. Food Exchange Diet Planner can be used by food professionals and knowledgeable individuals to create individualized meal plans that outline the number of servings from each food group for each meal.
In the 1950s, the American Diabetes Association, in conjunction with the U.S. Public Health Service, introduced the "food exchange scheme". This allowed diabetic people to swap between foods of similar nutritional value. So, for example, if wishing to have more than normal carbohydrates for dessert, one could cut back on potatoes in his/her first course.
Since then, the food exchange scheme has become a very popular tool for dieticians and nutrition specialists due to both its accuracy and its convenience. It has been widely used not only for diabetic people but also for general purpose and weight management diets.
The "food exchange scheme" categorizes foods into food groups such as fruits, starches, proteins and vegetables. Each group includes appropriate serving sizes for each food in it, so that one serving of any food in this group is considered "equal" to one serving of any other food in the same group. For example, one may change one slice of bread with three quarters of a cup of cold cereal. Both of these foods belong to the "starch" group and have the same nutritional value. One starch serving contains approximately 80 calories of energy and composes of 15 grams of carbohydrate, 3 grams of protein and trace fat.
The first step towards creating a diet plan based on the food exchange scheme, is to create an individualized meal plan that outlines the number of servings from each food group for each meal.
