Carbs, carbs, carbs, my entire life is counting carbs. I hate it! Some days I’m not good at it and other days I’m the carb counting champ of my town and the surrounding counties.
What a slog - This food brings you up quick, that one is no good for a low... OMG, don’t eat that before bed. Scales and cups and measuring spoons, I see them in my sleep (the sleep I get between 3 and 6am).
Today my advice is quick and to the point...
Pick up the book, “Pumping Insulin” and turn to page 82. Read and re-read it until you understand what Glycemic Index and Glycemic Load mean. Read page 82 until your silly face falls off, read it until you can recite it, read it until people start talking about you right in front of you because they think you won’t hear them as all you do is read page 82 of Pumping Insulin. When you’ve finished just sit back and watch your A1c go down.
Say it with me, “It’s not the carbs, it’s the Glycemic Index”.
After you’ve mastered page 82, flip back and read the entire book, it’s the surest way to improving your insulin pump skills. If you don’t use a pump... well, I think you should get one if at all possible. I’d rock the OmniPod if I was you.
I’m not affiliated or compensated by any of the products that I mentioned, they are just great and in my opinion the way to go.
