    5.4 before eating yesterday evening, 13.1 afterwards.....eek....two tortillas with a healthy chilli. First time I had tried them since diagnosis. Last time I try them since…..ahem. 13.1 is the highest I have seen.

    I tried them as an experiment to see if they 'filled me up' without spiking too much, but in fact they're yet another thing to avoid.
