Ok as yall know I work at chic-fil-a , I have a very hard time with eating their food . It always causes high blood sugar then of course lows. No matter how much insulin I take I am high . I have tried to take it 30 minuites before eating ,15 minuites before right when I eat . Divide the shots into 2 times .
So I just ate my last meal from there today it was just the 3 chicken strips it has them listed as 24 carbs I took more then I was suppose to and 3 hours after i ate it I was 212!!!!
So my question is does anyone else here have trouble when you eat there ?Is it just me ? Just wondering !!!!!!
it could be the carb count is not accurate. chicken strips are especially hard because there size is not uniform. you could have got three large pieces and maybe the count was 38 carbs.
I worked in bunches of restaurants and most of them portion stuff out with scales, this is 4 oz, that is 6 oz, etc. Sort of like I do!
i worked in a bunch as well and in my experience there are different rules that are usually followed...is the manager watching, is it rush hour, this is for my coworkers lunch break:)
For breakfast--the sausage burrito (the small one, not the breakfast burrito) from McDonalds is always my breakfast choice. The tortilla wrapper is easy to blous for.
I have similar issues with any high fat or protein foods. Question, when you are dosing for the carbs in your meal, are you also dosing for what the fat and protein will do a few hours down the road? If I'm eating a high fat meal like that, I bolus half up front, and then more an hour or two later in order to cover the late spike from the absorption.
Fast food is tricky and the best advise I have is that if you have to eat it avoid the fries and learn 1 or 2 menu items and stick with it. If you always eat the chicken strips, then eventually you will figure out how to bolus for them. Good luck
remember anything with high fat in it like fried foods is hard to metabolize so it actually causes high blood sugars once the fat gets thru if that makes sense thats why you are probably having highs even after you dose high just stay away its crap food bring in your own
