    Breakfast: White toasted bagel with lots of butter - pre 6.3 post 5.8.....
    Wouldn't normally buy "white" anything but it was in a "lucky box" of short dated stuff, thought I'd eat and test it
    Dinner: 6 rashers of bacon on two thin slices of oat and linseed bread (homemade) think I forgot my "post" test...hmmm but was ok with same bread and a very ripe banana yesterday...went DOWN post
    Tea: will be a salad of sorts at friends house so may well include pork pies and potato salad..

    Found a strange thing whilst its been hot.... fasting bs a lot higher than usual but "post" readings going up less (or coming down) weird... no meds btw

    Hi everyone,
    I'm new to this forum, but unfortunately not to diabetes. Diagnosed about four years ago but decided if I ignored it it would go away! Stupid I know. Anyway, finally decided to change my ways about three weeks ago, so here's what I've eaten today:

    Fasting B/S- 6.2
    Breakfast (Late) Two slices of whole meal toast with butter and a cup of tea

    Lunch- Roast chicken dinner. This was a bit of a surprise so basically had to go with it and thought it would be a good experiment. Chicken, Stuffing, two yorkshires, two roast potatoes, 4 new potatoes, cauliflower, swede, peas, carrots and gravy. 7
    I was pleasantly surprised with the results, B/S @1 hour:7.8 2 hours: 5.7 and 3 hours: 5.7. These seem ok to me?

    Snack: Some strawberries

    Couldn't be bothered to cook breakfast so has a toasted bag & butter with Marmite. Wasn't hungry lunchtime, so had an early-ish dinner of barnsley chop, cauli cheese diced potato roasted in garlic butter with the chops then strawberries & cream.
