    @Naomi425 who suggested a protein bar?
    I've had success with nuts or cheese (protein) snacks as I'm on lchf.
    Protein bars can be made from protein whey which isn't recommended for diabetics.

    Ok I'll see what nuts do. I have to say I'm unconvinced by the theory . My liver obvs thinks I'm fasting and can't assess BG levels so it's pumping glucose out whatever I do

    That's right. None diabetics also get dawn phenomenon. However they need the livers input but insulin resistant diabetics don't. Our bgs raise naturally from food which accumulates in the blood rather than converted into energy.
    Thanks liver but we don't need your help!
    Insulin dependant diabetics can use the liver dump to their advantage but in my experience insulin is a weight gainer.

    5.8 for me this morning, so I guess the choco;ate experiment has yet to show anything conclusive.

    Maybe I'll keep at it a bit longer....

    Thank you Paula! I saw your message too late and I will certainly give that a try next time we're there :happy:. We went to the Breakfast Club in The Lanes, I had a lovely spicy roast cauliflower salad with pea shoots and green beans in a cashew dressing. I always look at the menu before I go in to eat. Never been there before, they have a nice selection of food. Not much for diabetics, but I was happy with the salad - different! :)

    7.8 this morning, I avoided yoghurt this morning after yesterday's spike, and opted for a safer (or so i thought) scrambled egg with 2 very small rashers of bacon. 2 hours later 10.1!!!

    I think my body is just not playing ball...... Any ideas for a breakfast that won't spike me? Mind you, bacon and eggs weren't spiking me last week.....
