Thanks Lanie, for the subject title, also. I was so concerned about
my topic, I didn't notice that subject title line.
In a way, I don't really take note of what I ate the night before, I just some mornings take my reading fasting, and just record the number without thinking about
it, or that it relates to anything, like what I had to eat the day before.
No matter what I have for supper, I have to have 2 or 3 snacks. The first one is always regular Cheerios, a banana, and goat's milk. 2nd, Cheeze-Its with ranch dressing, third can be hummus on saltines or Ritz.
Since your above response, I've substitute a banana (17 grams of sugar) on my cereal with either Raspberries (5 grams) or blackberries (7 grams) or strawberries (7 grams).
What am I supposed to do, eat no carbs (potatoes, rice, bread) for supper?
I already eat wheat-free (meaning no gluten?) bread for another health problem (allergic to wheat, like everybody is), and cow's milk, like everybody else is because it has lactose (sugar), which is why I use goat's milk, and also avoid sugar. Those 3 I try to avoid.
Does wheat-free bread have no carbs? Lunch I have no carbs, if wheat-free bread is a low or no carbs. I have beans, ham, etc., on wheat-free bread, cottage cheese, and washed out of sugar canned fruit. Breakfast, eggs (way high in cholesterol, only 3 needed a week;) and wheat free bread.
Supper can be a challenge. Meat, veggies.
I have "hummus" spread on wheat free bread for one snack. "Hummus" (no carbs) I found on net for good snack, is actually chick peas, it has 5 units of fat not over 25 like peanut butter.
Saltines have much lower fat than Ritz.
I'm not on blood sugar medicine. I've read that b/s readings before breakfast are higher than just before lunch or supper. But sometimes readings of 140 before breakfast, and 98 before lunch or supper? That's quite a drop off.
