pork rinds
sugar free jello
Do anyone else have trouble with pork rinds raising your blood sugar?
Maybe its because I get the BBQ flavored...I can't figure it out...theres zero carbs.
Total Available Glucose.... fat + protein = insulin required

Zero carbs does not always mean zero impact on BG.

Interesting!!! Didn't know that!! Thanks!!!!!

almonds --- I usually get them raw and then add some of the seasoning (goes really good with popcorn shaker flavorings)

sunflower seeds

Good call with the hummus Richard, I've been addicted to it with veggies and hot sauce ever since I used it to snack on while I study
Sunflower seeds send my sugar's the weirdest thing, even if I am careful to measure out and bolus for the carbs I still end up high from them.
hmm that's rather strange, they usually don't have too much of an effect on mine as long as I eat a reasonable amount and bolus correctly. Try different varieties, as some of the more popular ones have seasonings that increase the carbohydrate counts. The kind I LOVE now are Jim Beam BBQ flavored ones. They have 7 grams of carbs / serving with 6 g of fiber
It is strange but I will give them another try. I really do like them alot so maybe the Jim Beam BBQ will be less weird in my system....
+Amazon states that they have 9 g carbs and only 3 grams of F so thats 6 grams of carbs for a mouthful - I can see a 40 or 50 g Snack with theseNutritional facts
I bet you have a food allergy to them. I've discovered that I have a ton of food allergies & one of my tipoffs is a high bs that hangs on. (Takes awhile to come down, no matter how much insulin I take).
i know you posted this awhile ago, but i was wondering if you had any more information on this, or know where i might find some? i was diagnosed this year with eosinophilic esophagitis, which is caused by severe food allergies. i am finally (finally!) seeing the allergist this week, but there are some foods that no matter what make me go really high that shouldn't, and i haven't been able to figure out what the link between them is (ie carrots, pasta, peanuts--totally random foods).

Hi Alli, you should consider as well what foods react with what in the body. If you read about the "Page diet" or Paleolithic diet you will find information linking the effects of peanuts and many other foods that directly affect the pituitary gland, the MASTER endocrine gland. Happy reading and let your intuition guide you.
