So after yesterdays post I agreed to post my blood sugars on facebook but I figure this is going to become quite boring for those people who don't care. So instead I thought I would do a little diary for each day with my blood sugars and what I've eaten etc.
So after breakfast my blood sugar was 7.2mmol/l.
At 11.25 I had not had anything to eat since breakfast which for me is an absolute miracle. I was starting to feel a bit peckish but had a drink of water to hold me off until lunchtime.
My blood sugar before lunch was a fantastic 5.7mmol/l.
I was really pleased with my pre-lunch blood sugar - it just goes to show that no snacking in the morning makes a big difference. I went to Greggs to get my lunch and got a chicken and bacon sub roll and a lemon drizzle doughnut. I know I shouldn't have had the doughnut but I'm a bit emotional today so treated myself. I went to the Greggs website to find out the carbohydrate content for the items and was shocked to find that although they list the calories and the fat content they don't actually list carbohydrate content. I decided to see if there was anyway of contacting them to ask if they can add carbohydrate content as surely this is part of nutritional information that should be given.
My blood sugar after lunch was 12.8mmol/l a little higher than it should be but I'm happy.
I found the contact details for Greggs and sent them this e-mail.
