BG was 78 before lunch at 12:45. Ate 2 pices of chicken, a biscuit, and an ear of corn. Walked for 40 minutes. BG 123 at 2:10. Washed dishes, light house cleaning for 45 minutes. BG was 150 at 3. That's only 4pts lower than right after I had major surgery. This is the first time I had eaten an ear of corn since being dagnosed. I have been able to eat the biscuit with the chicken and no spike. Maybe I can try the corn without the biscuit. That's what I get for skipping my midmorning handful of almonds and got greedy at lunch. Tested at 3:30 BG 135. Only exercise was slow typing and panic. Glad it's going down it's Tuesday Girls' Night Out with Mom ( AKA The Cake Lady).
Some days I feel like a lab rat in a carb maze.

Try testing with your BG meter. Test before you eat the corn, then about 1 hour and 2 hours after to see if and how much it affects your BG. Some pople even check at 1/2 and 1 and a half hours.

They have my 2nd best vote. Back in my riding around the country in the semi days Bojangles was the best. Church's is just across the street and the nearest Bojangle's is many states away. KFC used to have corn, might still, but thir chicken doesn't even come close. Popeyes chicken around here is tough. Back in the semi days, Popeyes was better. So maybe it's just tough around here in CO.

I hear you! I love corn, too. I'll have a half cob or small cob grilled with dinner sometimes, but it will be the only starchy thing I have. I haven't eaten a biscuit in a long, long time. Sometimes on family movie night (while my husband and son are eating chips or candy!!!) I'll have 3 cups of popcorn, seems like a lot but it never spikes my bg and my fasting bg is always good the next morning.
