My name is Michael Simpson and I am a Type 2 Diabetic. I am also a
software developer. I realized that even with medication that I needed to
take control of my diet.

I have just created HealthAtHand 2.0 and need some beta testers. The
original HealthAtHand ran on the Pocket PC but this all new 2.0 version runs
on a standard PC and features multiple forms and full cut and paste.
One of the goals when I created the program was information and recipe
exchange. With 2.0 you can copy a complete recipe to the clip board and

there own data bases. This works for whole food categories and individual
ingredients as well.
The Beta version of the software is free and can be found here:
The only requirement is that you must have .Net installed on your computer.
The link is on the bottom left side of the page.
I have also created some HealthAtHand forums so we can exchange ideas and
The original Pocket PC software product is available as well. I will
eventually update this software to version 2.0 and add the ability to
synchronize it with the desktop version.
