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?
I cried when I realized that, though I love jelly beans, the were not worth the crappy blood sugars. They are the one candy that I can't seem to stop munching on. I hate the grocery displays this time of year...
Chinese food! It makes my blood sugars sky rocket. (When I lived in China, my blood sugars would go between 20 and 600 and back to 20 within a few hours.) I love the stuff, but I know I have to almost double my lantus if I don't want to wake up with next day with blood sugars in the 400 range. Even then, I still almost always run high the next day. (I just looked on Trev's list and saw he had it posted pretty high on the list, but none of the other things he has listed affect me. Just Chinese food.)
Rice has a lot of carbs in it. I wonder if it is to do with that. My blood sugars rise but I take more fast acting insulin than usual just after the chinese meal (not before as I have a hypo) and it seems to help. Bummer that you can't enjoy a chinese as I love them.
I makemy own chinese and stay away from whiyrstick rice - I serve over a medley of lang grain brown, red abd white rice. I stirfry the meat with a little olive oil, then addveggies - peppers onions, snap peas sprouts and water chesnuts. I use a packaged chinese sause mix and use splenda instead of sugar. Its very good and it agrees with my CGM!!! But the sticky white rice is on the top of my list to avoid!!!!
yes Chinese food destroys my BG... no matter what I get. Last time I measured out 1 cup of plain white rice and had chicken with broccoli (no breading) and still was about 220 afterwards. Oh well, it's good though!
The white sticky rice is absolutely the worst and the chinese from the Oriental restaurants is loaded with fats
Try homemade Chinese stir fry and use long grain rices - Lots of veggies and just a little Olive oil in the stir fry - its outstanding. I use one of the packaged seasonings but replace the sugar with splenda
