Hi tudiabetes Community,
It's been awhile since I've had any questions but I'm having some troubles managing my blood sugars these days.
I'm very active in bicycle racing and recently we moved to a more wholesome diet of 6 ingredients or less within reason. If things are natural or organic but have more ingredients that's fine. You just have to be able to recognize the things you are eating are not genetically modified.
I'm now having trouble going all out for longer than 45 min. without my BG dropping like a rock. I can't figure out what to eat to help sustain the maximum effort required. Eating during some races is not an option as the race is only 30-45min long in the case of a criterium at maximum effort. Taking my hands of the bike to open a gel pack can have disastrous consequences. Any ideas on what food can maintain the steady burn without being too "engineered"???
It's painful falling to the back because of a low and I'm trying to find new ways to sustain my BG momentum.
I'm willing to try anything.
