My 2 day meals. Not perfect but not bad.

Sunday Fasting- BS 120, Breakfast was 1 slice of homemade banana nut bread the equivalent of 2 slices of white sandwich bread
Pre Lunch- BS 105 Lunch was 2 slices pepperoni pizza, apple
Pre Dinner- BS 63 Dinner was Pork chop, green beans, fried potatoes, and fried okra.
6pm BS 114
7:30- Snack of nuts, apple
9pm- BS 123

Monday fasting- 105 Breakfast was 2 eggs, 1 sausage patty, 2 cups coffee with 2 teaspoons regular sugar and 1 teaspoon non dairy creamer.
Pre Lunch- 132 Lunch- 1 chicken patty and one small tomato quartered.
Pre Dinner- 120 Dinner was Chicken fajita without wrap or sour cream, cauliflower and cheese.

Apparently the banana nut bread isn't causing too much of an issue. I use plain flour to make it. I use only vegetable oil, and I scramble my eggs with butter and a little whole milk.

FRIED OKRA!
now you got my attention.
Nice that you have found a tasty menu you enjoy that keeps your numbers under 140.
Interesting that your lowest number of the day followed the lunch of pizza and apple … what medication(s) are you on? Or is that "natural"?

Novolog Flexpen 9/9/9 and Lantus (long acting) 24u at bedtome. I love fried okra. Would have been better with some green tomatoes fried in with it.

Hi BreC
Well your numbers look good but your diet would put me in high, high numbers. 2 slices of pizza alone would do it. Not to mention the
Banana Bread. Because of potential future complications I would change my diet but you do what you need to do for you. Hugs, VL

Brec,
If It were my diet, I would eliminate the banana bread, Make pizza crust half Hi maize 260, eliminate fried potatoes and sugar and substitute real cream for the fake cream (trans fat). If you are taking a drug or insulin, it is the drug that lets you eat banana bread, potatoes and sugar. Drugs won't protect you from complications. It does give you a false sense of security allowing you to eat
things you shouldn't. Eventually more drugs will need to be added. Sorry but having had diabetes for 30 years, I cannot bring myself to help anyone continue in denial. Fasting blood sugar of 120 and 105 is too high. My blood sugar this morning was 86. Any thing 100 or over is a red flag for me.

I am not in denial. Both my doctor and my Endo have said that 120 or below is good control. No, I don't believe everything I am told but if I am at those levels I think I am doing just fine. What works for one doesn't necessarily work for another. As for me, I don't like it when my sugar gets below 100 because I get a migraine. And as for the creamer, I prefer the taste of the non dairy creamer.

If you could send me some of that magic banana bread that doesn't cause spikes I would surely appreciate it…I cant eat bananas or anything made with flour…try to squeeze a piece through the keyboard while thinking of me and maybe it will get here…

As you said, anything made with flour and or sugar will raise blood sugar in every diabetic to some degree, depending on the person, the reality is our bodies can longer handle carbohydrates as it did before.

That's not bad BreC accept when it got down to 63, that may be alittle to low. I mostly eat small portion of steamed vegetables, and a small tilapia fillet, and a small red potato steamed as well with a teaspoon of butter and a teaspoon of sour cream and I take 1 metformin pill after I eat and check my b/s level 2 hours later and mine will be somewhere around 140. That's not exercising afterwards either which I should do but it's just too cold for me to be outside where I can do it properly.
