I'm so sorry lol, bad habit - I should have written it out and not made assumptions - YMMV = "Your Mileage May Vary" :)

Michelle I hear ya on the bacon. I think 90% of the hospitals bacon goes to the ER staff. I do good with 6-7 peices of bacon and 1 egg then I alternate with chunky potatoes, oatmeal, and wheat toast. I gotta have some carbs to stay I haven't had cereal forever. Or jelly for that matter. I do good with fresh fruits though, non of that canned stuff. I'm starving now. Wonder if I'll make it through my basal eval I have planned this even {:- ).

Michele-what do you eat for fruit and Jamie what is a YMMV? I do love English muffins though. Also maybe my carb count is off-I use a 12:1 ratio.

For me (and if I can presume for many people there), it's all about the carbs. I do better with whole grain breads than I do with Wonder bread (does that even still exist?!). I do awesome on days that I have bacon and eggs / hold the toast (sorry Audrey). I'm pretty sure it's a YMMV, and all you can do is try something then test 2 hrs afterwards and see what happens.

Bacon and Lucky Charms -- you guys are killing me!!
Audrey, the Shmuckers SF Preseserves are pretty good, certainly worth a try.

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.
