I am wondering what suggestions do you have on what to eat prior to exercising. This morning I tested my BG two hours after eating breakfast & just before my Barre Class and it was 115. I ate a fiber one coffee cake bar. I checked my BG after the 60 minute class and my BG was 85.

I am still learning and trying to fine tune what to eat, how much to eat, and when to eat to keep my number level.

Thank you in advance for your suggests and or advice.

I usually like to eat too before I work out and then rest after. I usually eat a fruit or drink lots of water to feel full. When I am full I like to exercise.

It's great that you're testing your BG before exercise as well as after exercise. It's a good idea to talk with your physician and diabetes educator about eating and exercise guidelines specific for you.
