Hi, I'm trying to figure out how to eat Italian and Chinese Food without having a crash then high three hours later. Is there a trick to the trade you've all picked up? Here's what happens, I count my carbs, take the insulin, eat my food then within two hours I crash, then within three hours after that I have a massive spike! Anyone know how I can enjoy some favorites without this roller coaster?
Thanks,
Blessed Diabetic

Know you were specifically referring to Chinese food, but still appropriate link...

Check out Gary Scheiner's lecture on pizza. He talks about how to cover for hard to cover foods.

Also, perhaps you all already knew this but I didn't...in his lecture on carb counting at the FFL conference in Orlando, he talked about take-out Chinese food. We had always had trouble covering my daughter for take-out. Come to hear, the rice is pressure cooked in sugar water! The carb ratio is something like 78 gm per serving instead of closer to 40 like regular rice. Obviously a huge difference when carb counting...
