If your doctor ordered tests for cholesterol, then you need to be fasting, and if he ordered a fasting glucose, then of course you need to be fasting. Otherwise, fasting is not required for an A1c.

Perhaps you need to find out what exactly are the tests he's ordered, and then you won't have to starve for hours giving you an excuse (yes, an excuse - not a reason ) to eat a banana.

If you continue eating bananas, oatmeal, etc., you will not gain control over your diabetes, and your A1c will not improve.

Wow you guys are really passionate about this diet arn't you? You reply as if I was the head of the ADA and i was telling everyone to eat bananas and oatmeal.
I am real. I am not here to lie to you in order to impress you so that you will like me. This way of eating is a radical change in my lifestyle. It's like quitting cigarettes and going through nicotine detox/withdrawl. There are some foods that I have been addicted to all my life, and to quit them cold turkey, frankly, puts me in a small state of shock. My mind is constantly telling me: "Are you upset about something? Eat sugar! The dopamine rush will make things better". I believed that for years. Now i'm changing.
Should i apologise to the forum for not being perfect like you guys? Should I bow down and humble myself before you because I ate a banana? I am struggling. Please give me a break. If i justified bananas and oatmeal, then I can see your point. But I know they are the wrong foods for this WOE. I get thoughts such as "don;t tell them that you ate a banana or oatmeal because they will bite your head off! Lie to them and present yourself as perfect so they will like you". Sorry. I am a realist.

Hey, Dan. We aren't perfect; we just want to be. Your breakfast sounds good. (So does the white toast with butter and jelly.) I had egg, sausage, cheese and --woe is me--a biscuit.) Tomorrow is another day.

OMG you ate a biscuit!! The carbs! the carbs! Bad dog! *smacks Reagen on nose with a newspaper*
Lol , just kidding. If you eat a biscuit, it won't raise my BSL. As long as you know whats right and wrong, it's really none of my business. Thank you for your reply.

You protest too much, Mr. Danbridge. You get way too defensive when counseled that your choices are poor. No, we are not perfect and we backslide on rare occasions. Yes we are passionate about this way-of-eating because we are realists ourselves: We know that indulging our desires and making excuses will result in going blind, losing toes/feet to gangrene, and going on dialysis. I hope you get real before you go blind or worse.

I made a really bad choice yesterday and I've confessed to it. I'll bet no one will do more than give me sympathy…I knew it was bad when I made it, and I do know better. Worst one dietarily since I joined and with knowledge aforehand. Just stay honest and learn…we've all been thru it...

Seriously though, go to google images and type in "diabetes foot". This is serious stuff and we care about everyone here and I'm glad you joined and have stuck around. But you're stubborn. Youve made tremendous progress already, I don't want to take that away from you but you're still only partially committed to getting your diabetes under control. We don't want you to be posting in two years that you're losing feeling in your feet, capiche?

I had the same thing I always have. 3 eggs and 4 strips of bacon. I just try and remain consistent and I sometimes scramble, other times omelet with sausage and veggies, but always have my eggs and bacon. It helps me insure I reach my goals!!!

As a newbie still testing after eating different food to see how by BS reacts, I tried two slices of "no wheat" sesame Ezekiel sprouted grain bread slices slathered with cream cheese for breakfast.

Wow...won't be doing that again. BS went from 111 to 159 in one hour and I'm not even satiated.
