Tested by blood before eating 93. after two hours it was 130.

Received a list from my dietitian with 30 vege's I can eat in any quantity. Cauliflower, squash, zucchini, broccoli, mushrooms, etc.

Was nice to see my blood sugar so insignificantly affected.

I didn't take a shot of insulin before hand either.

I think you would really like my Rye-Wheat bread because it raises your blood sugar slowly.
Rye is known to stop fats from being absorbed in the digestive track, and so reducing the main cause of type 2 diabetes. Fat in the muscles causes insulin resistance. Rye prevents this.

Id be interested in that list! My insurance doesnt cover a dietician so im winging it. I always seem to make the wrong food choices even when im trying to make healthy choices.

Hi Mickie,
Your body is the best way to measure what a food does to your body. Try cauliflower and see how it affects your blood and then try a russet potato the next day. Potatoes really raise my blood sugar, I have eaten to many in the past and then had my sugars go above 600.
Cauliflower I can eat as much as I like and get that full feeling and it holds me for hours and my blood sugar stays low.

Hi Mickie, I have been trying to find the list. When I find it I will post it here. But, I do love eating all I like and getting full at dinner time and not wanting to eat later. I have lost 30 pounds in the last two years.

I have very little success in the weight loss area, in fact the opposite is true. It is all my PCP can think about. I am beyond stressed trying to loose weight, lower my #s and make eating taste good for the kids. It sucks but sometimes they feel like they are being punished because I have Diabetes.

Your kids are being rewarded with a healthier diet. Not the diabetic diet, the human diet.
Eating more fiber has helped me lose 30 pounds over 18 months. As I said I make my own bread and I use an electric flour grinder to grind my wheat and Rye flour. So I am getting good fiber.
If you eat the vegetables it will displace the stuff you are eating that makes you gain weight.
And you will have that full feeling.

those veggie have a low glycemic index, digest slower and doesn't cause spikes like some foods do

Your body is the ultimate glucose meter. Test it before you eat and precisely two hours after the food touches your tongue.
