Good luck, Pam! We're having hot wings & butternut squash . . . I'm headed to the kitchen right now to put the squash in the microwave. I might have a burrito instead of hot wings, since I had a coupla wings for lunch. We'll see . . .

I had a cheeseburger, a small salad with Walden Farms ranch dressing and 2 servings of sugar free cinnamon roll pudding.

I had a largeish turkey cutlet and green beans. Yum.

Well the pizza experiment worked out ok this time...I think I am finally getting the hang of it. I never went over 140 so its an improvement for me. I dont think I will do it too often though!

taking your suggestion for now to switch from glyburide to insulin as posted in my "my very own Quack Diet" > http://www.diabetesforum.com/diabete...html#post20319

I've been out to an Indian restaurant with my wife and two friends. Between us, we ate poppadums and a large pickle tray, mixed starter, three different main courses, very hot tindaloo sauce (which I ate almost all of because it was too hot for the others), basmati/pilau rice - unusually for me, I ate naan bread too. All washed down with two pints of lager - again unusual for me these days because I'd more often drink red wine. In fact, I ate more of everything than the other three people present who were all non-diabetic.

I know, I know - I can hear what you are all saying! I must be mad!

Anyway, I tested one hour after finishing eating and guess what - a reading of 4.6 (83). I couldn't really believe it so I tested again 90 minutes after finishing eating and guess what - a reading even lower at 4.2 (77). Quite unbelievable!!!

I decided to keep on testing and found:

After two hours my reading rose to 6.0 (108) - and at the 150 minute mark it had dropped again to 5.2 (94) - and 5.3 (95) after three hours - and 5.8 (104) after 210 minutes - and 5.9 (106) after 255 minutes. Despite the small rises at the two-hour mark and later, I'm still amazed by all these results!

As a Type 2 diabetic diagnosed nearly ten years ago and someone who seven years ago had an HbA1c of 9.4%, I really have no idea whatsoever as to what is happening to me! I'm always reading that Type 2 diabetes cannot be cured. However, at times when I sit back and consider the way that things are going for me, I really do wonder whether that is in fact the case!

I had KFC leftover chicken and corn. Yeah I had a lot of corn... almost 60g of carbs worth but it was so good. I did good for lunch though. I'm easing myself into the low-carb routine. Today was day 2. So I think I'm doing ok so far.

Give us a 2 hour post meal blood glucose reading, I am just curious, since you ate so much corn.

Was that KFC breaded or grilled? I love KFC, but it (the breading) doesn't love me!

It was Original recipe but I didn't eat much of the skin. Only 2 bites of it. But I checked online and it said that it only had 4 carbs for one breast. So that's not bad. I'll reply back with my bg in 15 minutes for the 2 hr post-meal test.
