JGE 96 – FBS Increases 13 Points – Kentucky Fried Chicken

Good Day,

Supper last night was on the Colonel. Yup that’s right it was a Kentucky Fried Chicken meal. My early morning blood sugar count increased 13 points down to 103 mg/dL.

And I had the following: Grilled Chicken; Coleslaw; Biscuit; Popcorn Nuggets; and Potato Wedges.

Supper included –

3-Piece KFC Meal Plus. Carb count ≈ 90 grams.

And when I got home I had a late night bowl of Publix Premium Hazelnut Amaretto Biscotti Ice Cream ≈ 44 grams

Total carb count, somewhere in the vicinity of 134 grams.

Results –

FSB – 103 ↑ up 90 (Normal range 100 – 125 mg/dL)
A1c – 5.37 ≡ 5.37 (Normal range 5.7 – 6.4 %)
eAG – 107.3 ≡ 107.3 (Normal range 117 – 137 mg/dL)

Here are my tracking graphs as recorded since the beginning of 2016 –

FSB - Early Morning Blood Sugar



Tune in tomorrow to Jim’s Gotta Eat to see the comparison of the results...and the set up a new Supper Showdown.

Food for thought – Try not to eat too late in the evening. Manage the amount of food that I eat. Do not over eat because my eyes see good food.

I am trying to control my diabetes with exercise and food. I have eliminated all diabetes medication. I am keeping my weight stable, and Jim's gotta eat.
