Think I better go with a salad for lunch. Twice this week I had fries with gravy for part of my lunch time meal - I ended up giving myself a greater amount of insulin to deal with it and my BGs still peaked to the 375 - 400 range. Not for long as I gave myself extra shots to get it to a more manageable level but I'm starting to fall back in to my old traps where I used to run between 375 - 400 daily for years because of my carb consumption.
It's terrible - as the temperatures are cooling down I just seem to be craving carbs ...

Lunch is my most difficult meal. But today’s plate includes five favorites for sure. The cherry jello is sugar free of course. Total carbs is 18 not much fat tho’ although I topped off the jello a couple times

Lunch is in 45 minutes - think I'll go with a ham and cheese salad at one of my favorite restaurants if I can get a table. It's a salad that actually makes you feel full with NO carb fatigue in the afternoon,

Well, today’s lunch totals 18 carbs. Not very filling, but great variety of tastes.

Rippling, are you counting net carbs (the number of grams of carbs on the label minus the number of grams of fiber)? That might put more on your plate.

Also, what are the foods at the 10 o'clock and 2 o'clock positions on the plate? Biscuit/cracker and ...?? I'm curious.

Yes, counting net carbs. 10 o’clock is 1 BelVita blueberry breakfast cookie (7 net carbs), 2 o’clock is a squirt of Hellman ‘s mayo (0 carbs).

17 carbs today. The black olives were a treat. Leftover pork chop was tasty too.
