That's why god invented Da Vinci sugar free banana flavored syrup!!! to fool us into feeling like we are enjoying banana flavor without the dreaded roller coaster of a real banana. I bet you could put in that!!!
How 'bout a syringe?
only around exercise can i eat them
I do eat bananas and they do send my BG upward. I also learned a storage trick from a friend. Say I want half today and half tomorrow. You cut it in two with a sharp knife. Then put the 'saved' cut side on a napkin or just a little piece of a napkin and it stands upright on the napkin. The banana stays fresher that way. Even the day after that if desired. Not longer than 2 days though. All you have to do is cut a little end sliver off and you have a good half banana the next day.
I did a small banana and 2 eggs for breakfast after 30 minutes on the treadmill. Just tested now at 2 hours post eating and I'm at 78. So no spike.
They do spike me if I eat a lot of them / or without exercising...
I do prefer real food to glucose tablets or candy and use a small one to bring me up if I'm going low.
Yeah, I use half a banana sometimes to bring me up from a low then I give the other half to my guinea pigs and everyone wins.
I also like pan fried plantain, which apparently is chock-full of carbs but it just doesn't seem to spike my sugars when I use it as a side dish :/
I eat bananas without expectation of a spike... typically I dose for a meal, eat a meal minus a banana's worth of carbs, and eat the banana an hour to two hours later.
I eat one each weekday to get me through a busy afternoon, after eating a sandwich and fibre-crunch bar.
Although T2, tight control means I can otherwise get headachey and a bit confused.
I love them and refuse to give them up
I use 45 carbs when I eat the entire thing . I can usually bolus correctly for it,
I eat about a quarter of a large banana, I really like them., I only eat them when they are yellowish -green.. cannot stand overly ripe ones! I pair them with cottage cheese or greek yogurt as a pre-exercise pre overly energetic couple of hours snack and I do not get a spike. If I absolutely want that 1/4 banana at any other time; I almost always pair such consumption with exercise.
I do, probally shouldn't, but I find they help with leg cramps.
