Are there any meal substitutes i.e. slim-fast for people with type 2? I start teaching on tuesday and I won't get up early enough to have a "real" breakfast...is there anything out there for us folk on the run???

I'm a teacher also and breakfast has been one of my biggest challenges. I rotate a few things: hard boiled eggs, a serving of Cheerios, a Metagenics' Ultra GlycemX which was recommended to me by one of my doctor's. It was 14 net grams of carbs, no cholesterol, and 15 grams of protein. According to my doctor the carbs are SLOW burning so that's a plus. It isn't the tastiest thing in the universe but I can whiz it up in the blender, drink it, and wash the blender in less than five minutes.

Good luck!

I'll often boil a few eggs just so I have them ready to go for the mornings. If I have time, I'll toast up some whole grain bread and slice up the egg and make it an open-faced sandwich.

The key to my mornings running smoothly is to have breakfast planned the night before. I hate thinking too much in the mornings :-)

SlimFast does make a low carb version which I have found in Chocolate and Vanilla. Atkins makes a low carb shake which comes in Chocolate, Vanilla, and Strawberry- I think the Atkins shakes have a better taste. I had several dental procedures recently that prevented me from eating solid food. I also tried Boost and Glucerna, but got sugar spikes from both of them. Good luck. :-)

I have used Glucerna with no problems. I usually keep a glucerna bar in my purse for when I am in a rush and need to eat. I also carried glucerna in my carryon when flying over seas. Not sure if I can still do this with the new regulations. I do hope so because it is a nine hour flight to visit my husband's family.
