I really enjoy eating a bowl of cereal in the morning to get my day started. Cheerios, Raisin Bran, the occasional bowl of Coco Rice Krispies (be still my heart) and I realize that the majority of carbohydrates in these cereals are fast-acting sugars that are not kind to maintaining a somewhat flat blood sugar level. I asked my diabetologist about that and his reply was "Welcome to the world of diabetes and stop eating those cereals if you don't want a BS spike." (While his reply may seem snarky to some, we have an excellent patient/doctor relationship and we pretty much are very "tell is like it is" agreement, like when I get him going about Obamacare!) But, I digress … does anyone have any recommendations on a cereal that has some decent flavor without using artificial sweeteners that won't spike one's blood sugar (as an example, I can go from a rising blood sugar of 100 mg/dL to 230 mg/dL about 30 minutes after eating the cereal and then back down to the 120's in about 2 hours). My goal is to remain less than 150 mg/dL or so after eating - is that possible to do after eating cereal? I did try shredded wheat since it had a higher percentage of protein but it had no positive effect. In advance, thanks for your replies and suggestions.
