I have diabetes, I count carbs to keep my blood sugar under control. Apps like myfitnesspal are inaccurate for carbs often so I wanted a way to ensure that the information was accurate but also simple and only did what I needed.

What it does

Counts carbs, shows your total compared to your goals.

How we built it

Flask, python, javascript, mongodb, bootstrap, css, html

Challenges we ran into

MongoDB was challenging to get set up.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

The website looks nice and runs pretty seemlessly

What we learned

Databases can be complicated and we learned how to create paths through clicking through a site to different pages.

What's next for Carb Count

More features- stats with graphs, net carb calculations, text alerts with twilio when you're approaching your carb or calorie limit
