Day one was cous cous and 1 hour after eating my blood sugar went from 6.7 to 13.9. After 2 hours of eating it was at 19.6
Day two was pasta and at 1 hour my blood sugar had gone from 7.5 to 18 - injected at one hour and regardless of this 3 and a half hours later it was at 20!!!. This is common with what I have experienced with pasta before. I checked my pump and all was well. Need less to say I wont be eating pasta again anytime soon.
Day three was rice and at 1 hour my blood sugar had gone from 8.5 to 19.2 - another abort
Day four was quinoa and my blood sugar went from 9.1 to 16.8 in an hour which is not to bad but I decided to abort and inject
So at the end of the experiment cous cous won the slow release battle but it still raised my sugar substantially after 2 hours. The Quinoa didn't do as well as I had expected but to be honest I was totally full after half a portion so I think I will definitely remember that. Rice and Pasta however are from now a complete NO NO. I may run another experiment with the wholemeal eqivalents at some pont in the near future but all those high blood sugars have made me knackered and in need of a few weeks off
