I need good orderly direction on what to eat. Imagine if I have been eating the wrong thing for breakfast for 35 years, it is time to change. So-protein for breakfast-and I do eat Jam on my toast. Maybe the jam has to go. I am not overweight-I love eggs for breakfast. Is there any reason not to eat them? I want bacon now thanks to Michele.

Allen and Audrey, I find that Lucky Charms have a positive effect on my bg levels! (just kidding)... I try to focus mroe on proteins in the morning, i.e. cheddar or cream cheese on a whole grain english muffin and some yogurt. Or some eggs. Even some nuts. I also think there is a good group here on tudiabetes which you might find helpful as well.

Allen, I was highest after lunch with syringes too - that is too weird! I am lowest after breakfast because I eat very little carb at breakfast - one of those high fiber english muffins with real butter and some bacon or eggs. Cereals kill me, so do pancakes and fruit and stuff like that. I get tired of the comments about my big plate of bacon in the doctor's lounge on work days :) I am 5 feet 6 and 123 lbs and bacon is one of my few indulgences that is entirely sugar free! So I enjoy alot of it! All the nondiabetics are overweight and eating the pastry tray!
Audrey, if you're in a rush in the morning, try one of those frozen Jimmy Dean 3 cheese omelets - only 270 calories and not bad for a quick breakfast. I sprinkle some Mrs. Dash herbs or Mccormick spice mixes on it for a little flavor. The Thomas' english muffins with 8 grams of fiber usually put me around 150 2 hours after the meal.

flywilley - that's my plan, i'm not sure i can wait till i get home to open it!! i'm gonna be so curious! ;0)
Comment by Allen on January 28, 2010 at 12:32pm
I also agree with Audrey. Cereal seems to have different rules than other carbs. Almost any carb is easier to control.

I am always high after breakfast in the high 200's to 300's-grain cereals shoot me really high-any ideas on what to eat to change that-now I'm eating toast. I eat dinner really early and try not to eat at night.
Comment by FlyWilley on January 28, 2010 at 11:59am
Allen, I think it's common to be high in the evenings because that's when we take in the most carbs rather we want to or Just starving by dinner I think.
Comment by FlyWilley on January 28, 2010 at 11:57am
Michelle I think that's when I need an increase. But I'm also going to ask about adjusting my I:C for dinner too. Maybe that will help. I am glad you've had no 300s that makes a world of difference in how you feel.
Myriah, when you get it Monday, get it out an play with it. Make time to go through the DVD with your pump and practice the menus. That helped me a great deal.

Oddly my high time is in the evenings as well. When I used insulin by syringe my high time was always after lunch.
