I had pizza on holiday in Italy and had textbook-perfect numbers afterwards (2 hours after dinner, 4 hours after dinner and next morning).
The formula that worked was:
- walking 4 miles each day for the 3 days before the pizza
- it has to be super thin crust pizza the way it is done in Italy
- Italian pizzas are minimalist with the toppings - the one I had was tomato smear, buffalo mozzarella smear, and a few shavings of salami
- not eating the rim
- donating a couple of slices to a non-pancreatically challenged companion
I bolused for 60g of carb and was so thrilled that all numbers were perfect afterwards. Can I confess to this audience - as only you guys would understand - that it was the highlight of my holiday in Milan, a bigger thrill than seeing Leonardo da Vinci's The Last Supper?
