2019 Health Journey -- Day 142 (May 22nd)

Hello everyone, hope you had a good Wednesday! I'm back to share my food/health post for the day. Blood sugars for the day? Fasting: 118 Meal 1: 104 Meal 2: 106 Meal 3: 71 For my first meal I just had a bunch of deli meat and a cheese stick. I wasn't in the mood to cook, or have one of my already prepared meals. Then, for my second meal I had tuna with mayo & no sugar added ketchup. I also had one of my low carb/sugar free peanut butter candies for a snack/dessert. Then for my final meal I had one of the enchiladas I made the other day. Macros: 1,219 calories 88 protein 82 fat 23 net carbs I think I did okay for the day....My protein is a little too high, but that is okay. I still kept my carbs fairly low. I count net carbs since fiber doesn't get digested (I think) so it doesn't affect blood sugar. I also don't count most sugar alcohols/substitutes. I don't normally use the ones that I would have to count though (like maltodextrin or maltitol). Anyways....how do you think I did? How did YOU do as well? Anything good on the menu?

I forgot to take my medicine last night so I woke with it 191, I had a couple egg rolls and it jacked, even after taking meds, I slept then checked it and it was still 260. So I just had salad for dinner. I will check it again before bed. Your numbesr are good.

Oh wow, sorry you woke with it that high after not taking your meds! Sorry it went up so high, I know those highs are not fun to go through! Hopefully it will be better before bed. Thank you, my numbers are usually pretty good while I eat very low carb. So I will stick to it as much as possible.

@andriaperry Oh yeah, the bread will do that to you! Even the chips would spike mine really high. They are so tasty though!

I think it's looking good. I had fish and riced broccoli yesterday. I also made a paleo/whole30 compatible banana bread that was delicious. Breakfast was my usual steak, eggs, and potato yesterday.

Thank you....I had some carbs today though...so I'll see the damage later. Fish sounds good! Glad you have a banana bread recipe that will work for your eating plan. Steak, eggs and potatoes sound delicious.

@MommyOfEli2013 It was. I had almost the same thing today, at least for breakfast. I finished off the banana bread. I haven't had supper yet, but I have hamburger thawing.
