    Planning on being adventurous tomorrow and have a pot of oats so simple..... Anyone tried these pots? if so how did you bolus for them and what effect if any did they have on your blood sugar readings?

    Thanks in advance :)

    I tried one of those pots once. I just bolussed what it said on the tub. As far as I remember, my BG was nothing out of the ordinary but , for some reason, I didn't like the taste and preferred the sachets.

    Most people find the pots can be a bit hit and miss as they are more processed, I have a 45g serving of jumbo oats with raspberries every morning, bolus 20 minutes before and never usually have a problem (until my basal needs reducing again that is lol) ENJOY!! :) x
