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

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...
