    What is a good thing to eat post exercise? I'm T2.

    I tend to exercise after work so not home until 8-8.30pm - I tried wholemeal carb and protein but it seemed to result in high evening readings even if I had a small amount.

    I now stick to some chicken/cottagecheese/coldmeat/cheese/egg/ with a little lettuce - maybe a little hummous.

    Seems to have stopped the high readings and poor sleep. Any other suggestions?

    I usually have a protein shake - if you choose carefully there are lots from 2g to 4g of carbohydrate.

    Thanks borofergie.

    I have often wondered if a protein shake is something I should take after exercise.

    I bought mixer/shaker bottle a while ago so I will get some sort of a light protein powder for women.
