Well it is over…just took my two hour post dinner BG…all in all we compiled enough to make a great science project…and my BG didn't spike nearly as much as I thought it would…
My fasting BG was 87…and my daughter's was 73..

Breakfast was 1/2 cup of oatmeal (made with whole milk) with 1/2 small banana and a cup of plain greek yogurt…my BG went up to 137…my daughter went up to 91

Lunch was turkey and swiss with lettuce, tomatoes and mayo on two pieces of whole wheat bread and a glass of whole milk..
At the start of the meal I was 115…2 hours post I was 173
My daughter was 76 and went up to 94

Dinner was 6 oz of chicken breast, a sweet potato (because my grandson loves me) and Brussels sprouts with butter..
I started at 119…two hours later I was 167
My daughter started at 74 and went up to 90

I am convinced I didn't hit 180 because I have been on a keto diet for mos and my insulin resistance has improved…these same food use to spike me much more…tomorrow is my first fast day…kind of to say I am sorry to my body for today…

Not bad at all. I'd take those blood sugars any day being a Type 1. Did your grandson measure his blood glucose also? Science results are best when done a minimum of three times!

What a wonderful experiment, he should ace it. i'm pleased with his choices in foods, they are very thoughtful for a 7 year old. If I were 7 and choosing foods I'd have thought of fruit loops for breakfast, not oatmeal!. I'm glad you didn't spike too high. Good luck on your fast.

Well he loves his oatmeal…and didn't want to give me foods that were too bad…he tried to keep it healthy…we almost had pizza for lunch but alas we are not in Brooklyn anymore…and we couldn't find a pizza with whole wheat crust… how I miss NYC

Hi Jib Jab,
What a great experiment…great thing for your Grandson as well. It is interesting to see the comparisons between you and your daughter..

interesting … I like to compare with my non-diabetic (much) better half when I can talk her into letting me jab her finger.

The things we must suffer for those we love, LOL. I'm sure your body will appreciate the fast and get right back on track. This science project is a real winner!
