Default Certain food items and sugars help please

I understand my mileage may very. I also understand everyone is different. I’m still not a diabetic and try hard not to be. I’m the only one that’s not in my family and same for the in law side as well. I’m trying to help everyone on both sides while helping myself. I eat under 20 grams of carbs per day. Drink only water and so on. Here are my questions will you please post if you’ve tried any of these items and tell me what they do to your sugar levels and if they taste good. I got these items from someone on here posting about an online shop with low carb ready made foods.

I hope this doesn’t break any rules. I’m trying to help myself and several other and I’d like to k ownif there is a section on this somewhere else. I’m looking for something like a list of foods and what they do to your sugars so I can see if it’s worth spending the money on the items or not. This list could help everyone on the site. Make it a living document. I’d even volunteer to manage it and update it.
One last thing, the boxes of sugar free jello good or bad for your sugar? Just 1 serving or can you eat the whole thing? Thank you all for any help with this. Mods if this needs edited or anything let me know please also if it can be added to another forum thread or anything please let me know I want a lot of people to see this.
Thanks

You are correct in that everyone is different. Unless you test your blood sugar after eating foods, you won't know for sure.

However, since you're not diabetic, I would think that if you kept to your 20g/day pattern, you would do okay with just about anything.

Commercial low-carb breads haven't been well thought of by forum members in the past by those who have tried them. For myself, I've just given up buying low-carb bread/ sandwiches/ pizza crust, etc. Anything like that, I make from scratch - there are some really good recipes out there.

I've tried a few of the "no sugar added" sauces but just like @VeeJay said, everybody is different. Unfortunately everything turns to sugar, no matter how gluten- or sugar- free it is.

I say give it a shot and have the family members let you know if it works for them or not.

Just that short list you had in your post - I stay away from all those things.

For me personally - I try to eat unprocessed foods and avoid grains as much as I can as well as root vegetables. No artificial sweeteners either.

Now having said that - No or little breads, No artificial sweeteners - no canned sauces etc - as a 56 year old Type 1 who was diagnosed at 4 - I don;t know what I'm missing in regard to the foods I avoid as I never really ate them anyway. But having said that - if you lived most of your life eating a certain way and then was suddenly advised by a health professional to change - that would be very difficult and a real struggle for many.

That's why I think we need to be careful about the way we advise people to move to a LCHF/keto eating plan. LCHF/keto offers lots of good healthful food to eat and the benefits are great (especially the lower/no Rx part). In my mind it is without question worth at least a try (or two) to make this way of eating part of diabetes management.

But, looking at the standard North American diet, LCHF/keto is a big change. If your idea of a Friday after work is cracking open a few beers or if you've spent years joining your buddies every morning for coffee and donuts and conversation, going LCHF/keto is an adjustment. And I think we need to consider that not everyone can make the change in one try or without some sense of loss for the way food fit into their lives.

Thanks for all the replies. I was just looking with the idea of ranges since everyone is different. I figured if 3-5 people or more tried something I could see a 1-2 hour range and have an idea. I don’t want them or anyone past or present or future diabetic to have to buy expensive food items just to find out this isn’t going to work and they just wasted their money. I envision it like a TripAdvisor/Yelp/etc. I’d like to do the same with all the expensive raw food ingredients ie almond flour/coconut flour. Much like how This forum recommendations for meters and strips due to pricing. He wealth of knowledge on here is great and I very much appreciate it. I have a few family memebera that lurk on here now. So they say. I understand everyone’s valid points but like I said blood sugar isn’t going to change that much over the course of 100 years I don’t think. So if we start and maintain a list like “what’s your blood sugar when you wake” thread. We can get over the course of months and years a range of sugar levels and then maybe help people that just became diabetic know what foods might be safer to try and what not. Like I said i eat 20 or less carbs a day. It’s hard and I’d like to try sugar free jello from the box but I don’t want to add something that could cause spikes. Not that it would effect me so much now but it could add to my becoming diabetic later. I’ve seen people online other sources say sugar free jello box jello is bad and cause spikes. What was their spike who knows. Others say it doesn’t effect them at all ie my step mother. Again sorry for the rant just trying to help a wide and sadly constantly growing community.
Have a great day all.
