Default critique me!

Hi guys, the newbie again!
Im a pretty active soul and was wondering if someone could critique my diet please as im about 3 days old as a type 1.

The attached in slide 1: breaky, lunch and dinner, slide 2 has my snacks and totals.
Sorry for the confusing format, i found it difficult to convert files to such smaller sizes etc.
NB: 'myofusion' is a protein shake...i lift weights and do a lot of heavy exercise (triathlons) including sprints of swim/bike/run. The distances i cover arent endurance tri's, they are short and sharp. The actual races are over in 45 mins, so my training is never over an hour usually.

This diet is pretty much what i ate pre-diabetes. The banana and shake are usually post workout (weights), so on days i dont lift i can swap out the banana for some strawberries/apple?. The same is for the afternoon snack of 1 cup brown rice- is this time pre-exercise. Again, if i dont exercise i can swap out the rice for some low carb food.

also in regards to exercise, does anyone do exercise on an empty stomach in the morn? Or do most find this too dangerous for possible hypos? Im a personal trainer and do spin/rpm classes 1 morn a week at 6am and used to roll out of bed and just do it on an empty tummy. Not sure how this will affect me now with type 1


thanks,
tim

Since I maintain a normal BG without meds, this would put me on meds fast. I never could eat those foods all day, but maybe you can. I suggest you look hard at those foods and read Bloodsugar101.com and decide for yourself. Your meter can tell you what you can eat.

170gms of carbs a day bad?
60 of those sugar?

had a quick look at bs101, it advocates zero carb basically. Unfortunately as a triathlete and personal trainer i do need carbs for energy.
Keeping in mind i have carbs at breaky, post and pre workouts and lunch, so im trying to time them.

i have been using my meter and they are going from things like 16-20 30 mins after a shake and an apple, but drop to 18 soon after. Keep in mind im on an initial dose of lantus and only 3 days old as a type 1.

Does this change your view pat? Is it that our lifestyles are different, or by general rule, 160grams of carbs/60 sugar a day is too much?

Hey Timmy I myself am new to type2 and I don't know if it will help but my first research was on this forum. I hear LCHF everywhere I look here so I go to YouTube and search low carb cooking. There is a guy on there named Kent something and he runs marathons but eats low carb. What I have found here on the forum is diabetics get their energy from Fat instead of carbs. The YouTube guy is one of the cooks in the cookbook lowcarb cooking among friends or something like that. I just got the book but I'm already in bed and can't remember the name off the top of my head. Good Luck on all the learning that goes along with diabetes. Dr Bernstein is a type 1 and he sure preaches lowcarb in his books. There is a lot of research on the part of a diabetic because the doctors sure don't tell you straight.

Type 1 & 2 are completely different diseases which require different approach to manage. With the T2s diet is very important because in most cases insulin resistance is a very important & major issue. With T1s that is not the case (mostly) so a LC/HF diet need not be the standard approach while managing D of such people.

That said, any comment on your diet will be futile, because you will need to work out your own carb/insulin ratio with a lot of testing and trial & error. Your basal insulin needs will also have to be worked out in steps and stages over time.

I'd suggest a reading of Dr. Berstein's "The Diabetes Solution" for a better understanding of insulin use.
