Rereading the THM books and I’ve bern focusing on 3 hour gaps for eating. Major change to staying within my calorie range doing this and I feel in control

Thanks for sharing about the potatoes. My husband is not diabetic but produces too much insulen.

Small red potatoes with the skin are an excellent choice of potatoes for diabetics. The skin of small potatoes provides fibre, which slows digestion and absorption. Most diabetics can include a modest level of potatoes in their diet. he Journal of the American Dietetic Association reported Potatoes with skin have almost twice the amount of fiber as the flesh by itself. Fiber is important for diabetics because it helps slow the digestion of food, preventing large spikes in blood sugar. When possible, potatoes should be cooked the night before, then reheated the next day to lower the glycemic index. They are fat-, sodium-, and cholesterol-free, and a medium-size potato contains just 110 calories.

*Trying a teaspoon of physillum husk/powder in my meals. It slows the processing of sugars in your blood
**Sweet potato with Ceylon cinnamon might be a good choice - I think it is delicious.
***Drink you water daily, if need to set cell clock reminders WATER for each hour awake, a cup of black coffee or black tea after meal. Green tea, 1 teaspoon Bragg's apple cider vinegar and 1 Tablespoon raw local honey before bed. Fluids help.
**** And don't fret. Stress can raise BGL same as it does BP and p.

Copied from Planbook or just encouraging notes from other THM - group sessions - sometimes Facebook, sometimes local support, sometimes diabetic group.
...whole eggs are an S fuel. Sprouted bread is an E fuel. If you are having 1 piece of sprouted bread with your eggs it is an S helper. Two pieces of the bread would be a crossover. If you are struggling with morning numbers, you'd likely have better success if you don't add an E fuel and have a truly S breakfast. Most diabetics are more insulin resistant in the morning and tolerate on plan carbs better if they eat them a little later in the day. Personally, I try to eat my E's midday.
