Rice is my number one forbidden food. Fruit juices aren't much better although I will drink some for a low.
pasta, rice, potatoes of any shape or form.
I know chocolate spikes my BS so once a month a buy one dark choc Dove bar which satisfies me and it is no longer a problem.
Lentil Soup. It's so weird.
Jasmine Rice
Mexican food
French Bread
are the worst, and i miss the most. I don't have much of a sweet tooth. the way I work them in is by having them en route to strenuous exercise.

best surprise - Popcorn doesn't seem to spike me at all.
Thai food is the worst. I'm running over 300 for hours after I eat it. It's just not worth it. Same for Chinese food unless I get everything steamed and avoid rice and any type of sauce. Bagels and cream cheese...forget it. Basically, anything high in fat is a no go for me. I spike more on high-fat foods than I do on straight sugar!
Have you tried doing an experiment to see if it's high-fat high-carb that spikes you, or just high-fat?

E.g. try bagels and cream cheese one day, and just cream cheese the next day.
Hahaha! Definitely, definitely egg rolls of any variety. I don't think I really 'manage' following the delicious egg roll intake - I just keep checking my blood sugar and take an extra bolus or two to make up for the high blood sugar that follows 9 times out of 10.

I don't do it too often...but sometimes at work the siren call of not having to cook and being able to pick up something fast and tasty calls to me...aaaaand then I spend the rest of the night remembering why I didn't do it to begin with.
hard dough bread!
Chewy sweets
For bread I have tortillas, for potatoes I have sweet potatoes, for chocolate I have sugar free...but there is nothing for Cheetos...That is the last of the forbidden foods I have not conquered...I get defeated everytime! I try to restrategize my next attack but nothing seems to work...I just cant get my hand and mouth to understand portion control when it comes to Cheetos...
Pizza, chinese food, cereal. Basically the 3 food groups of a college student. Chinese food ESPECIALLY. Seems like no matter how much I bolus I always end up 200+ afterwards.

Doesn't make them forbidden for me... just an occasional treat on the condition that I go run later or something. I guess I'll have to stick to the fourth food group, Ramen noodles.
Anything that tastes good.

(Just kidding...kinda...)
