garlic mayonnaise dip with two pieces of chicken nuggets amazed to see FBS 90 mg/dl

Hi everyone, I had two pieces of chicken nuggets with 30 grams of garlic mayonnaise dip (paste) one hour prior my bedtime. I checked my FBS as i do almost everyday, i was amazed to see my blood sugar level 90 mg/dl. I tried eating the same last night and the Fasting Blood Sugar level was 89 mg/dl.

Never my FBS was below 106 for all these months.

I think the garlic mayonnaise dip is the reason for this. I used to have chicken alone without garlic dip but the FBS was above 100 always.

any ideas / suggestions from the experienced gentlemen...

I actually eat two small chapatis with garlic mayonnaise dip plus two chicken nuggets.

I control carbs intake.

I think this is the effect of garlic mayonnaise dip.

Awaiting Mr. Anup's response. He will enlighten us.

The reason is that your chicken and mayo is a LCHF meal (assuming you left out the rice of course). No rice, chapatis etc means you won't be spiking your blood sugar!

I agree that LCHF is science and reducing carb to a limit works well for many problems but I think you making LCHF a "magic" word....how LCHF can be reason behind reduced the bs reading after adding garlic mayonnaise ?

Hi,

It would have been if you take BS reading after 1 hour ,2 hours from first bite of food which will give correct idea of BS levels .

Fat slows the digestion of carbohydrate, pure and simple, but we still have to control the amount of carbohydrate eaten.

Consider the quality of the food too; shop bought mayo will be laden with processed oils.
