Top 10 List: Cursed Food

My list of food items that make it next to impossible to control blood sugars.


1.  Cold cereal --- No matter what we do it never works.

2.  Popcorn --- I love it, but my fasting doesn't

3.  Pizza --- Yup, still digesting three days later, kidding, but not far from the truth

4.  Chinese Food --- Hungry an hour later, and impossible to guess the carbs not to mention the rebound

5.  Alcohol --- Okay,  but who can stop at two? When I'm over the limit --- it 's low then high later

6.  Casseroles --- Unless I measure and count all the ingredients; which I humbly admit I do not, so my sugars suck later on. 

7.  Buffets --- nothing more to say, other then, bolus, upon, bolus, upon, bolus......3-4 peaks later, it's a       major gamble on predicting blood glucose, and I always lose my bet

8.  Late night Binging --- any item, your choice, nothing like an insulin peak when your body doesn't need it!

9.  Fast Food --- Just refer to 3 and 4, same deal different meal

10.  All items that are difficult to measure or "eye ball" --- You all know the ones....

Have a great day! 

PS:  Feel free to add to the list
