Good morning! I’m in a good rut and looking for ideas. I would love to hear some examples of what people that have successfully achieved an A1C in the 6’s and low 7’s. For the last year my A1C has creeped up to 8.2. I haven’t changed my diet and I don’t eat an over abundance of carbs. Breakfast is pretty easy. I’ll have a protein shake, Greek yogurt with less than 10g carbs, or eggs, sometimes on an English muffin sometimes not. I feel breakfast I have under control. Dinner is pretty easy to avoid excess carbs as I will have meat, salad or veggies, and rarely small portions of one roll, rice, or potato…no fries. I finally have given them up and when I do have them they just don’t taste that great anymore
Lunch is my downfall. I always run high in the afternoon and I can’t seem to bring it down. I’m looking for good lunch ideas. Something with more substance than a salad. Sometimes I do lunch meat and then cottage cheese, but sometimes I go the sandwich route and it ruins the day : / Maybe I need to square Wave or Dual wave bolus on my 670g pump?
Thanks for any suggestions for these meals! I feel like a few years ago I would be able to manage good control even while eating this, but now that I’m in my forties, I guess maybe that has something to do with it.
