Ok, guys…maybe I am having a brain fart or something but why does my BG go higher when I eat half a bagel at 25 carbs than eat my one serving of refried beans at 23 carbs?
I mean, yes I know the bready stuff is bad and I have been a good girl for almost a WHOLE year (my dx-verrisary is this Sat) but I had the worst bagel craving this past Sat and went and got one. Now I did my calcuations and half a bagel is around 25 carbs (with my vegan cream cheese a bit more) but for my dinners every other day I eat my mexican dinner that is 30 carbs plus and I am at a good number 2 hours later. Why oh why can’t I have half a bagel?
I am wondering if it because I take my Metformin with my dinner and the bagel I ate as my lunch and no Metformin at lunch time. My mexican dinner consists of one portion of refrieds 23 carbs, a low carb taco shell 7 carbs, half a chopped tomato, my vegan cheese - around 5 carbs - 5 sliced black olives, some chopped green onions, vegan sour cream - around 5 carbs too. So estimately add that up it is probably around 40 carbs. So why the hell is my bagel that is lower in carbs raising me 85 points 2 hours later. It is a whole wheat bagel - not that that makes a difference. I am mad at my body about this -carbs are carbs bod - deal with it. Once I get a job, I am ordering those low carb bagels I saw online and my body better NOT complain.
Is the Metformin making the difference with my over 30 carb Mexican dinner vs. my half a bagel? I am wondering if I had my bagel at the same time I took my Met whether it would be difference but I have been taking it for a year so I thought I had a huge buildup in my body. That said, I am sure I have eat the close to the same amount of carbs for lunch before but just not a bagel and didn’t have this problem. I can even eat popcorn and be OK.
Also, sort of a bit off the topic had anyone noticed that if they include something new in their diet that sometimes it will spike them at the beginning but if they continue eating on a regular basis that they do fine after a while with it? (I noticed this with beans so that is why I am asking - I can eat more at dinner than I used too and have a decent number for the most part).
Stupid body - I hate you for not liking bread.
