I am just wondering if anyone else has issues with Chinese food. I have found that every time I eat it I'm SUPER high. I end up taking 3 times my normal dose of insulin and just wondering if I'm the only one.
I tend to not overeat and have even ordered simple things like chicken and rice (nothing with sloppy sugary dips).
I'm ok with thai food and japanese, just seems to be something with Chinese food.
Hubby and I decided after discussion , to eat Chinese Food , Jan 6, 2012 !
Let us know how it went.
Also cooking Chinese at home - or being in China and eating it is very different. I never had a problem with food when I was in Beijing a few years ago. It just seems to be be the "westernized" take out stuff.
The experience : ...I think I was in underwhelm :) except for the BG readings , ha, ha ! ...Hubby choose the buffet ; I choose from the menu , 2 main courses , very heavy on the vegies , prawns and beef , plain rice .....with enough left for Hubby to have lunch ( of vegies ) on Sunday and a bit more today ...1 am BG was 3.7( ate 4 mini mandarins ) and 5 am : 5.0 ...could be due to too much insulin and manually clearing the driveway , because of a dump of snow .
I delivered for 47 grams of carb , 2.9 u square over 2 hours with a correction - 0.15 , because finger poke was 4.0 .( equals 2.75 u)
The fun was eating with chop sticks . The restaurant is run by people from the Orient . Will try again , when dining out in Waikiki end Feb.2012 Neither was I wearing my CGMS .PS The date should have read Jan. 7
