Default Was very bad.... but recovered quickly

I had one half (one serving) of a gluten-free frozen pizza last night. This is NOT on my diet plan, but decided to do it anyway. I rarely stray from LCHF but.... oh well, it was one of those times.

At 2hrpp my BG was 194!!!! I didn't test at 3 hr (can't do anything about it anyway and that 194 was enough to give me a shock.) At 4hrpp - BG was 70!!! This morning's FBG was 97! 1hr after breakfast 108.

I missed the bullet with this. Won't be doing this again any time soon - the other half of the pizza is going in the trash - it wasn't all that good. My LCHF pizza is much better.

I guess I just had to see what it was like. I'd been feeling deprived when hubby has his frozen pizza. (Now, if my pizza was a thick crust from a pizza place, that would of been much better, but I will NOT eat gluten.)

I did the same thing over the weekend. It was my sister's birthday. I was good until it was time to eat cake. After I avoided the Spanish rice and donuts that my brother brought, I caved into the birthday cake and ice cream. I had a small slice with 2 small scoops of ice cream. I was very surprised to see that my BG was 125 the next morning.

Here is my go to pizzia, and it's better than the real thing.
1 cup of shredded cheese
Toppings, olives, pepperoni, peppers, onions ect.
Basil
Garlic
Oregano.
1/2 cup of cheese
Turn a non stick skillet, I use cast iron with some olive oil, melt the 1 cup of cheese evenly, and fry until slightly brown on the bottom. Making a good crust. Put topping on, sprinkle with basil, oregano, garlic ect, and add the rest of the cheese. Melt top cheese, let cool a little then eat. It like only eating the toppings. Yum!

I find that eating something I normally don't/won't eat because of carb content, most of the time I have a lower fasting number because it trips my insulin releasing set point. Doing this on occasion probably won't leave much irreparable damage if your BG goes over 140 briefly, but not worth trying to continue doing it because the lower fasting BG effect will not last.

It is a natural thing to want to try something we don't normally eat. I find I could get myself off course easily with cashews. I'd be totally afraid of what would happen if I ever cave in to my occasional thoughts of Skittles and Mountain Dews.

Blue Girl, you might want to post your pizza in the recipe section. I got to where I didn't care for eating pizza any more until my wife started making low carb pizza. I can pig out guilt-free on her cheese crust pizza. I say pig out, but I actually get pretty full on 2 slices of it, whereas I used to could eat a whole medium size regular pizza and still feel like I had a little room for more.

I think real ice cream tastes as good, but other things I've tried after being abstinent for a couple years were, as you said, not all that good. French fries come to mind. They are really yuck to me now! I never sneak a bite anymore.

What surprised me with the indulgence is that I experienced no residual rise in BG the next day or two. If anything, BG was a bit lower after that. I attribute it to my pancreas having had a good rest was able to produce enough insulin this one time.

All this talk of pizza has spurred me to making some more LC pizza crust. I usually keep some in the freezer to use when the pizza bug bites me. Looks like a LC pizza meal coming soon.

I have notice similar lower readings. When my husband or son grabs some food that I used to love, and can not have any more, like potatoe chips, icecream brownies, candy bars, I will some times take a small spoonful, or 4-5 chips. (I do keep reesie pieces in with my meter in case I go to low, but have never used them. ) I'm never tempted to have more, and they never taste how my mind has glorified them to taste. so I'm happy with a taste, and I have noticed little or no change in my BG numbers. Granted this is a 1 times every couple of weeks thing. If it's something I can't do without, I eat a small enough amount that the carbs are 1-2 grams per serving. Lol back when I started I was eating Hershey kisses, yep they are in my food list, on my app I use to keep track. Just isn't worth trying to cut that Hershey kiss into 4 equal parts, to lower the carb amount. I gave up.
