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?
One of my fondest childhood memories was going to the web site thisiswhyyourefat.com to look at the food porn. You can read up on some of the highlights which include a 30,000 Calorie Sandwich (ground beef, bacon, corn dogs, ham, pastrami, roast beef, bratwurst, Braunschweiger, turkey, fried mushrooms, onion rings and five cheeses, served on white bread.
Krispy Kreme Donuts-Hot and Ready Now!
My home-made buttercream icing on White Almond Sour Cream Cake (I'm a hobbyist Cake Decorator and Type 1 Diabetic, LOL)
A fresh slice (or three) of French Bread
Caramel OR Peanut Butter Cake
Waffles without Syrup (I know, I eat pancakes w/out syrup either--matter of taste)
Ben & Jerry's Pistachio, Pistachio Ice Cream
Bruster's Key Lime Pie Ice Cream
Barbeque Pizza from Pizza Hut
Cornbread Dressing (with or without cranberry sauce, doesn't matter)
PEANUT BUTTER FUDGE!!!!!
I completely avoid--at least right now while I'm a newly diagnosed T1. I'm sure at some point I will have a serving of something on t his list. A SERVING. I am more aware now about serving size and just because you buy the pint of Ben & Jerry's DOESN'T mean you have to eat the whole thing in one sitting. I mean this is not a challenge....I've competed, "won" and ultimately have LOST.
I'm a sweetie...just love my sweets. But I know that I can live without those things and if I treat them as "treats" then I will be better off in the long run.
