Rusty,

I ate the meat and half my wife's meat scraping off the BBQ sauce as best I could. Then ate one bite of her corn bread with 2 pats of butter on it. (i've since learned to salt and butter my ribs like I used to do corn on the cob. Yumm.)

I merely tasted the coleslaw. The dressing likely had gobs of modified food starch. That taste changed my saliva two-and-a-half shades on a sugar test strip. (Only the filler in the artificial sweetener packets does that.) The corn bread only changed the strip one shade.

I'm inclined to agree with Renee. Whilst it is great to change the food pattern one small step at a time, we cannot dictate to everyone else, especially to non-D on what to eat. They in all likelihood would not understand, unless it is a 'catching on diet', as with most fads. We cannot turn into 'wicked' diabetics either. , But as Shanny rightfully points out, they could have 'checked' with you first and not have made the decision for you, since it came from the office. In a private hostess, then it is good of them to at least try.

I'm sure all intentions are good however, so perhaps it should be taken in the spirit it is intended. Just my 2-pence.

We must also realize that not everyone is comfortable with everybody knowing they are a diabetic. Me myself, I have no problem telling others I cannot eat that because I'm diabetic, but some are very private about their diabetes. Therefore, you cannot just assume people around you understand the different woe we as diabetics have from them. Also, there are others who are diabetic and follow the ADA in what they should be eating, so that flour crust (and many pizza places will make whole wheat) is just fine for them to eat because they took enough insulin or take drugs for it. Me myself, even if I bolus for wheat flour, I will still spike if not right away, then hours on down the road. It may even affect my blood sugars well into the next day. So, I stick by my original thought that I myself commend them for wanting to oblige, but unfortunately they have the wrong information and therefore did what they felt was right. It would have been better to have asked, but there are many places of employment who would have taken the attitude of here's what we are offering; if you can't eat it too bad.

And Shanny, I agree that others should find out what would be the best thing for a diabetic person to eat. Unfortunately our government has deemed it necessary to support big Agra and big Pharma, therefore they will tell us whatever the contributions and lobbyist's tell them to say. I don't think others are trying to butt into my life by at least making an attempt at providing a healthy alternative for me. They just don't understand that they may not see what I eat as a healthy alternative.

And I'd just like to prove a bit of a point here; as I was typing my last post on this thread, an advertisement for pizza from Donato's was on the side bar. I have to assume these places are paying for advertisement on the diabetesforum.com, so touché.

I noticed that Dominoes here has a low carb crust, but not low enough.

Yes it contains cellulose, a polymer of the simple sugar glucose. But we can't digest it so we depend upon cows and other ruminants to eat the hay for us. If you inhale a cow fart it is really quite sweet. I'm posting here mostly to follow this interesting thread.

I spent ten days in Italy on a group tour. Our hosts did their best in accommodating my lust for zero carbs. There was pasta and bread everywhere, but I got the special meals each time. I am pleased to say my non-diabetic travel mates found my food more appealing; I got a lot of antipasta, delicious artisan cheeses, oil and vinegar on fresh garden salads, and plenty of wine. I found it simpler to say I was very sensitive to pasta bread and rice, rather than to say I was a type two diabetic. It seems people understand food sensitivities and allergies better than a zero carb diabetic diet.

There is no call to eat in order to be polite to others, though -- especially when you know it forsakes our health!

I jsut tell coworkers, there is no way you can come up with anything that meets my strict requirements for diet, so just let me bring my own. They consider me an oddity, but I do my job. :-)
