What do you mean by "long-acting"? Long in the sense of energy provided by the carbs? How high do you define "low-spike"?

Do you mean which food has the carbs most delayed?

A carb is a carb, I thought. There are no good carbs or bad carbs...only the foods that carry them.

Yes, a carb is a carb. If its encased in a lot of fiber it possibly is released more slowly as it takes a bit to break down the fiber - but it eventually does all go into the bloodstream. I have found that vegetables in the cabbage family which also includes cauliflower, give me the lowest rise in BG after eating.

Also, if one is eating plenty of fat, that also slows down the digestion, so in that respect the resulting glucose from any carbs can have a sort of "time release" effect. For example, many have found that when they eat pizza (with the crust) that their BG is within target range 1 and 2 hours pp, but if they test at 3 and 4 hours out, they then see the spike.

This stuff was good but the market was out of it and I bought a different brand that was more mushy and faster acting.

I should look for whole oats.

He is a Type 1, probably no insulin resistance, and can adjust insulin to cover. Not as bad for a type 1 as it would be for a type 2 using insulin to cover, A Type 2 would be subject to a double whammy, higher BG and higher insulin levels.

Add a piece of toast to that oatmeal and I would be over my daily limit for carbs now. Last time I ate oatmeal, maybe 6 years ago, it spiked my BG from 100-120 to ~260. Haven't had it since.

My favorite "carb food" (as far as minimal affect on my BGs) is spinach. It's a good thing I like raw spinach as I eat a lot of it. Today for example - I had a spinach/dandelion/chicken salad. I cut my lunch time shot by 50% and in a couple of hours my BGS will still be within the normal range if this trend continues.

I'm a type 1 as well, but I follow (or at least try to follow) Dr. Bernstein's advice on using as little insulin as possible to avoid crashes. The law of small numbers.
