Evening meal..and another blood test.

Just finished my evening me...it was some barbeque sausages, marinated barbecued chicken..and some barbeque vegetables.

I could not eat any salad as I was to full and I put it in the fridge for later tonight or tomorrow morning.

I also enjoyed a little coconut water that I cut from my tree in the afternoon and put in the fridge to cool.

I took a blood test before eating and the reading was 104mg.. I did have a cup of espresso coffee with just one teaspoon of sugar about one hour before the test..

The Plan is to take a blood test in about 2 hours from now to see how much my blood sugar levels have risen.

The dinner looks great.πŸ˜€πŸ‘ Did you add barbecue sauce to the chicken? The sauce has different amount of carbs. depending on the amount you have used.

104 mg/dl is good before eating.πŸ˜€πŸ‘

I did make some sauce to add after cooking added a little teriyaki sauce to it... the chicken was put in Greek yogurt and turmeric, and other spices for 2 hour before cooking.. interesting to see what sugar levels are in 2 hours time.

I like the colourful meal you have there Hidden - at least the salad will last for another day, when you have room for it. :-)

Hi Notsoogood. Great news, there's quite a couple of items to go on your non-spike list.

Depending on the type of vegetables you want to eat, the numbers can either go higher than you expect or stay even. Corn can raise blood sugars very high in most people. Corn usually raises my blood sugar, so I try to not eat it as much.

Yes your right about the vegetables and I am completely avoiding starchy foods for a while, but this because I want to lose some weight. But I will do one or two tests on them when I start eating them again.

I only eat a very small amount of sweet corn..and not that often.

Okay, but be careful when you start trying them out. It’s hard sometimes to get the numbers back down after eating starchy vegetables.

Just out of interest can you trial before and after your coffee as this may have affected your trial. Generally I would test before a meal having not had any food ( sugar is a food ) for two hours beforehand . Then if trialing different foods I do a test at the one hour / two hour and three hour if needed.

Just looking at what you ate I would be surprised if the lower reading after two hours is not due to your coffee and sugar raising your before test.

Even so your results are exceptionally good :)

Thank you sleeksheep, I will take your advice on board and at some point will try that.

So far I am very pleased with the results..specially the very bad one I had yesterday..as it's what I was looking for.
