I don't think I can eat that much for breakfast ... but I see your point about more proteins & fats. I was just surprised how a few carbs (not many in Cheerios & skim milk, I thought) would cause such a big upsurge in my numbers.
"Another option, of course, would be to eat that steak for breakfast. "
Hmmm, steak AND wine for breakfast .... now THERE's a thought
Talk about your Breakfast of Champions!
Last weekend, I BBQ'd myself up a nice cut of tenderloin & had 3 glasses of wine ... I know, I know BAD ... but I counted one of the glasses as dessert My after dinner reading was lower than it had ever been!
I will do more research on this & report back.
Since you're not on meds, Cherrios and skim milk will give you a rise in blood sugar, higher than you want. For a person with normal metabolism, it would be ok, but unfortunately, you're not normal, I mean, your metabolism. I know, I know, fiber and all that, but we're talking about blood sugar here. I think if I even look at a cupcake, my blood sugar rises. Switch over to a protein-laden breakfast instead. I'm serious about the steak. When we grill steaks on a weekend night, I can never eat the whole thing, so I finish it for breakfast. If you think those omelets are LARGE , then use one egg, or just fry one egg and eat a slice of bacon and maybe a slice of cheese. If you're in a hurry, cook up a pan of broccoli-bacon-egg-cheese souffle ahead of time in a baking pan, cool, cut up into squares and freeze them individually. Then, when you want to eat one, you can easily microwave it. That's good when you don't have time to cook breakfast. This should bring the morning blood sugar down better than after the cereal. Now with dinner, regular wine is fine. You're not on meds so you don't have to worry about it interfering with them. Let us know about the research.
