Type 2s: What have you eaten today?

Discussion in 'Type 2 Diabetes' started by Administrator, Apr 20, 2015.

    This thread is not about what you think people should be eating but rather what they are eating @controlled.

    This is why the thread is here as per Admin's words.
    "Share what you've eaten today with the rest of the DCUK community and maybe steal a few ideas for yourself!

    Low carb contributions are of course welcomed, but please keep in mind that this is not the low carb diet section, and debates about diet should be kept out of this thread. Happy posting!" ;)

    There is a low carb thread about people's daily meals here.

    I had one rather big slab of chicken leg with 3 small sized tomates with scrambled eggs (2 eggs).

    (It's delicious but i think i overdid it with the eggs, was so full the whole day and felt like i'm about to burst. Also feeling really sleepy with this newly acquired form of low carb-ing of food. My readings are 6.3 before meal and 6.8 after)

    Dinner was a small salad and duck confitt with a tiny scoop of potatoes in a lot of cream.

    Supper, cheese with hazelnuts and dried cranberries.

    What were you before you ate? That figure matters because you have no idea what that breakfast did your levels without knowing where you started. I would suggest the porridge, toast and honey were to blame.

    Hi @podger78 if you pop over to the low carb section to view a similar thread that should help you. In fact the whole low carb section should give you valuable info and relationship between carbs and blood sugar levels....
    Hope this helps
