The hardest carbs for me to give up is white rice and unfortunately brown rice in large quantities still spikes my BS. I cannot get brown rice at awesome Asian restaurants and it is hard. No more Vietnamese rice noodles or Chinese chow fun. Man even bread and noodles are a real concern. All the processed dried noodles taste horrible like soba. I think it is time to get a grain mill and make sure my carbs are from whole wheat.
Thank god there are other choices that are still left for us that taste great. I am pretty stable with The Habit Grilled Chicken Salad with two servings of Honey Mustard Dressing. However nothing clears my sugar out like a big bowl of boiled cabbage. Also thank The Lord meat is still available to is!
I have just been diagnosed a couple weeks ago, but did not start my meds and diet planning until I ate a bowl of Chinese Beef Noodle Soup and two hours later I tested at 264mg/DL. Upon further research I learned how serious blood sugar levels and diet management were.
After this one week on two oral meds I am averaging 122mg/DL. I still have that Morning Spike no matter how good my levels are the night before.
Sorry for the rambling all of this is kind of emotionally and physically exhausting. Anyhow thanks everyone for their guidance and input.
