Hi everyone!! Have you been out to eat at Red Lobster and they give you those cheese biscuts or been to Dixie Cafe and they give you rolls and cornbread with honey. I'm telling you this is the best bread in the world. It seems like I can't help eating all they bring. Now at home I don't eat alot of bread and I don't even think about it, but when I go out to eat I turn into a bread monster. Does this happen to anyone? It's like they put happy juice in the bread and I feel like I am in bread heaven. I know I need to get control and come up with a plan, but I was wondering do other people feel this way?

I have to agree with you about that particular bread. it is yummy! I also love home made cornbread, and there is absolutely nothing quite as comforting as a big slice of bread fresh and hot from the bread machine with a good amount of soft butter. However, I have come to the realization that if I want to stay healthy and not have to go back on all the meds I have gotten off of I have to stay away from starch and sugar.
What I do when my husband and I go out to dinner if bread is brought to our table I just ask the waiter or waitress to please take it back with them. I will usually say something like…If you don't mind would you just take the bread back with you, we won't be needing it. Bread, pasta, potatoes, and other starchy sweet things are so tasty, but they are hard to give up. I just feel so much better when I stay away from it. I have also discovered that a meal of protein, fat, and non starchy vegetables is quite filling and satisfying. It keeps me full for half the day without being hungry or deprived.
Good luck. You can do it!

I love bread too. I tried making a very healthy diabetic friendly bread. I bought the grain, by the 50 pound bag, and ground it my self.
I did my best to incorporate Rye into the load, Rye is hare to make it rise., but still it makes my blood sugar rise.
I still make 3 loaves a week, but I eat only 3 or 4 pieces a week.
Rye, is very healthy for the diabetic.
rye helps prevent fat being absorbed and metabolized. Fat in the muscles is the cause of insulin resistance and so, type 2 diabetes.

I love bread as well Olive Garden bread sticks and Red Lobster biskets. I try to limit the bread to 4 slices a day. But Im guilty in over doing it on the chips and bread. LOL Im not perfect.

I was kidding about the salad comment. I wouldn't put myself in a high blood sugar level on purpose, it's dangerous. Also, my friends and family stop me after one piece a bread. LOL! Thank you for the information!

I love fresh bread, here Olive Garden has the best bread sticks. I can eat their all you can eat salad, soup and breadsticks all night long, if no one is paying attention. :) plus doesn't eating the salad makes up for it, right? :)

I don't think the salad makes up for eating the breadsticks IMO. Simple carbs are simple carbs, Gwen, and they will spike your Blood Glucose (BG) levels. The vegetables in the salad may buffer the spike a bit, but IMO it is best to stay away from breads altogether. Especially it also depends on what soup you are having. Some of those OG soups can have quite a lot of carbs in them as well!

I love it too! I like those little cheese biscuits at Ruby Tuesday, they are small and I can have one and not worry too much or feel guilty about it. has anyone tried Paleo bread? it is found in health food stores, and I have to travel a good distance for a HFS but they are VERY low carb, and sound just perfect and come in different flavors. When I try it, I will let everyone know what I think.

I have some Paleo bread in my freezer, where it will remain until I can offload it onto some poor unsuspecting soul! Eat a cardboard box, it will taste better! I was very, very disappointed in the bread I bought, which was touted to be very yummy and the pictures from the bakery I bought it from made it look delicious.
I'm here to tell you, it is NOT!! Not even toasted and smothered in PB and low sugaqr J!
I even posted same on their website, and they promptly took down my review, along with a few other negative reviews posted shortly before mine, so apparently they only want positive things on the website. This bakery sells to stores, so the store you are buying from probably has the bakery's bread.

If you do decide to buy it, let me know what you think-since everyone is different and you may actually like the stuff :)

I LOVE Ruby Tuesdays. they have such great Diabetes friendly sides. The last time I was there I gave my cheese biscuits to my son. Didn't want to be tempted!

You all must have very good Ruby Tuesday's the one here in the city is awful. The burger was dry and I swear the roll was stale. I will never go back.

Howdy Doggier. I used to be that way, but since my Blood Glucose (BG) is controlled by what I eat.

I usually just give my cheezy biscuits to whoever may be with me. OR if I am by myself and knowthey'll serve me bread or cornbread with my meal I ask the wait person NOT to bring them.

Sometimes occasionally I have to get stern about it and INSIST they not bring it, because should I have it on the table, I know I will be tempted to take a little nibble, then a bigger nibble and before long the whole thing is gone and my BG is heading for the roof. I have even had the wait staff bring it anyway and I wad it up on the plate and call the wait person back and ask them to "dispose of this." Then I leave 1 penny tip (an insult to the wait person) because I usually tip 20% of the bill.

So yes I agree with you. And the above is the way I have adapted to when eating out.
