What are the foods that you know will wreak havoc on your Blood Glucose? I have a few I posted. But what are some of yours. My Top Ten List of Forbidden Food
Do you avoid them or do you indulge? If so how do you manage it?
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!
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.
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...
