My blood sugar usually spikes after eating out. I went out for brunch with my family today and my blood sugar was over 300. One of the many reasons why I hate Diabetes.

Long before I was diabetic, I would have stomach issues when eating certain foods at restaurants. Things that normally didn’t bother me when I cooked them at home. My gastroenterologist said restaurants often put a lot of “crap” in their dishes that people don’t use when cooking at home. I also learned in weight watchers, that normally healthy entrees aren’t so healthy when prepared at restaurants. An example our leader gave us was a grilled chicken salad from a local restaurant, no dressing, no croutons, etc., that was almost 3,000 calories & 75 grams of carbohydrates. It was only about an ounce of grilled chicken breast marinated in olive oil & lemon juice, lettuce, tomato, red onion, cucumber, & mushrooms. For most people, that is 2 days worth of calories & carbs. I wish I could remember the fat content, but it seems doctors & nutritionists aren’t worrying about that right now
Don’t hate diabetes, this is your opportunity to learn to eat fats and protein as fuel.
Don’t view it as failure, but as information. Prebolusing can also be helpful. Check out the Juicebox Podcast and learn how to be a Diabetes Ninja.

It’s a crazy disease! My blood sugars go high or low for no reason whatsoever! It’s impossible at times!!

Protein salad take your own dressing with you. Fruits fresh. Enjoy being with family. Eat smaller amounts and always eat slow. Drink water lots of it. Have fun we can beat this.

This post reminded me I do not even take my sugar level after returning home from eating out! My guess is I know it will have gone up, and I do not want to know, really. So, I avoid the sugar test!

Many restaurants have nutritional lists online. I try to look up info before I go and make some preliminary decisons before I go.
Prebolusing 20-30 min helped bring my A1c’s down. Even if you don’t know what you are going to eat, a smaller prebolus can be helpful.

Eat less carbs when eating out.. Restraunts have carb free options
My successful Diabetes Treatment Story
My doctor diagnosed me with diabetes just over a year ago, at the time I was prescribed Metformin. I went to the some diabetes related websites and learned about the diet they suggested. I started the diet right away and I was very loyal to it. However, after weeks of being on the diet it never helped, my blood sugar didn’t drop like I wanted it to. My personal physician wasn’t much help either, he didn’t really seem to give me any other options besides my prescription and the usual course of insulin. I was about to give up and then I discovered a great treatment method. The guide was authored by one of the leading professionals in the world of diabetes research, Dr. Max Sidorov. This is a guide that that shows you, in a very simple way, how to conquer the disease without traditional methods. I have to say that since I’ve found the guide and followed it, I’ve not only improved my health but I’ve also lost weight and improved other aspects as well. My activities have increased and I have a ton of energy! It is my goal to share the this diabetes treatment method as much as possible to show people there’s more to the disease than traditional schools of thought and you can find your own path to healing with natural methods.
