This topic is now archived and is closed to further replies. What does a hamburger and french fries... I've been doing great the last couple of months, even eating more carby foods (I went on vacation and slipped a little... now have experienced "carb creep" and am nipping it in the bud starting Monday). My blood sugar levels have been staying pretty good, all things considered. Now the last week or two, the symptoms (skipped heartbeats from PVCs, jittery feelings, and general "things are not quite right" feelings) are coming back and the post-prandial blood sugar numbers are rising. So Sunday night I had a McDonalds 1/4 pounder with cheese and french fries, with a large diet coke. I know I shouldn't have, but was the first in a while and have known I'm starting back on low-carbing Monday. Yikes! My BG level went to 198 after 2 hours! I'm not Type II, just "Impaired Glucose Tolerant" at this point. But my question is what do you Type IIs go to after a meal like this? Note my fasting levels are still OK (well, below 100 usually anyway...). I'm not sure how helpful labels are -- whether you're type 2, type 1.5 (which my CDE has decided is the category I fall in, though I'm still not sure what that means), or "impaired glucose tolerant" (which may be the new term for "diabetic but caught it relatively early"), it seems to me that if you're getting readings of over 120 mg/dl two hours after eating, you're a diabetic something, and the emphasis there is on diabetic. The short answer to your question is that I haven't tried to eat a hamburger (with bun) and french fries since I was diagnosed in December 2005. I did h Continue reading >>

Amazing Hamburger Buns

Amazing Hamburger Buns

I wanted people to know about these. I promise am not a salesperson for this company or anything like that. I am college prof. They are Sara Lee 80 Calories and Delightful. The nutrition info says each bun is 14 grams carb but, get this, 6 grams of fiber! So essentially 8 grams carb total. I have to admit I haven't checked my bs after eating one but if that is true that is truly a godsend for those of us who do like to eat bread. Hamburgers, hot ham and cheese, bbq pork and not freaked out! Just thought I would share. If anyone has any info about them please share. D.D. Family Getting much harder to control Thanks please test then eat and test in two hours and let us know how it worked thats a great bun. Friend T2 since 10/23/09, diet & exercise I usually buy the store brand "Lite" breads and wheat "lite" hamburger buns. The buns I get are about the same description as how you described the Sarah Lee one's. I've also tried the hot dog buns as well but for some reason those rise my BG a little higher than I'd like. Wondering if it's because of the hot dog too. The lite breads/rolls aren't as good as regular bread but their better than nothing! Would love to hear what bg numbers were after the buns. !4 carb alone is pretty good. I am never too sure about the fiber and net carbs really doing anything. But these do sound good! I've been using the "Healthy Life" brand of bread and buns- sounds about the same amt of carbs in them and had good luck. I can buy them at my super walmart. Ahhhh buns. Nope, not for me. I limit my hamburger with bun intake to about 2 per year. I eat my burgers with no bun. I don't like taking the rapid insulin so that is why I avoid the bun. You will not find on slice of bread in my house either. I don't even miss it anymore. Oh man, now I really w Continue reading >>

Top 10 Worst Foods For Diabetes

Top 10 Worst Foods For Diabetes

These foods can can cause blood sugar spikes or increase your risk of diabetes complications. Bacon In addition to whole-fat dairy foods, fatty or marbled cuts of meat also carry a hefty amount of saturated fat, which initiates inflammation in the body and leads to various side effects. Since those with diabetes are already at an increased risk of heart disease, eating high-fat meats puts them at an even greater risk than the average person. Instead of feasting on fatty bacon, hamburgers, bologna, hot dogs, or spare ribs, fill your plate with lean protein choices like skinless chicken and turkey, fish and shellfish, or lean pork tenderloin.

Meat Lover's Guide To A Diabetes Diet

Meat Lover's Guide To A Diabetes Diet

Is the aroma of a sizzling steak too good to resist? If you're smart about how you choose red meat, it can have a place among other healthy protein sources in your diabetes diet. Having diabetes means making some specific dietary changes, but you don’t have to give up all of your favorite foods. You just need to make better choices. If you’re a meat lover, knowing how to select quality red meat and avoiding processed types, like certain cold cuts, is key. Cutting back on red meat and processed meats is beneficial even if you don't have diabetes because it's a heart-healthy strategy for any diet. And cutting back when you do have diabetes is even more important because all the fat and salt that comes along with processed meat can make diabetes control more difficult. On the other hand, your diabetes diet should include healthy protein, and the right lean red meat can fit the bill, but within limits. About Diabetes and Red Meat When researchers in Japan looked at the dietary habits and diabetes risk of 27,425 men and 36,424 women between 45 and 75 years old, they found that for men, but not women, red meat or processed meat consumption correlated with diabetes risk. The more of those meats the men ate, the greater their risk of developing type 2 diabetes, the authors concluded. A large study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found similar results in a large group of U.S. adults, although without a gender split. And when yet another team of researchers reviewed studies on this link, they found similar results across the board. The conclusion? Eating a lot of red meat and processed meat appears to increase the risk of heart disease and diabetes. According to these findings published in Current Atherosclerosis Reports, processed meat in particular, Continue reading >>

Hamburger Or Veggie Burger? Carbohydrates Are Not The Only Factor In The Diabetic Diet

Hamburger Or Veggie Burger? Carbohydrates Are Not The Only Factor In The Diabetic Diet

This study examined whether a processed meat-based meal led to abnormal increases in insulin (the hormone that breaks down glucose), glucose or hormones in patients with type 2 diabetes. The main treatment goal of type 2 diabetes is thecontrol of blood glucose(sugar) levels. Carbohydrates are the nutrients that are turned into glucose in the body. As a result, it is recommended that patients with type 2 diabeteslimit foods that are high in carbohydrates(such as rice, pasta and bread). However, other nutrients can also have an effect on blood glucose levels. For instance,saturated fat(found in meat or cheese) is known todecrease insulin sensitivity(how effectively the body uses insulin). Meals high insaturated fat or proteincan also increase glucose levels in the body after eating. A diet high in meat, particularly red and processed meats (salted fish, hot dogs), has previously been associated with a38% increase in the risk of diabetes. On the other hand, avegetarian diethas been shown to improve insulin sensitivity and blood glucose levels compared to the typical diet recommended for diabetics. It is not clear what differences can be seensoon aftera processed meat meal compared to a vegetarian meal. This study compared the effects of a processed meat-based meal and a vegetable-based meal on glucose, insulin, and gastrointestinal (GI) hormone (hormones that control the appetite, emptying of the stomach, insulin and glucose release) levels. 97 subjects were included in the study (48 type 2 diabetics and 49 healthy subjects). Each subject completedtwo study visits. Before each visit they did not eat or drink for 10 to 12 hours (fasting). At one visit they ate a meat-based meal (afast-food cheeseburger) and at the other they ate a vegetarian meal (a burger made from cousco Continue reading >>

Healthy Tips For Hot Dogs And Hamburgers

Healthy Tips For Hot Dogs And Hamburgers

Diabetic Living / Food to Eat / Nutrition Yes, you can eat hot dogs and hamburgers on your diabetic diet. Just follow a few tips and tricks, and start enjoying these barbecue favorites guilt-free. By Hope S. Warshaw, R.D., CDE; Photos by Scott Little During the warmer months, your social calendar is likely to be sprinkled with cookouts, visits to street fairs, or pool parties where the grill is a-sizzle. And the main course, of course, is hot dogs, sausages, or hamburgers. "Nothing tastes better than a hot dog downed during an inning of baseball or a brat at the Polish polka festival," says Patti Urbanski, M.Ed., R.D., CDE, a dietitian and diabetes educator at the Duluth Family Practice Center in Minnesota who also has type 1 diabetes. Fortunately, you can relish these rituals without ruining your diabetes meal plan. Diabetic Diet , What to Eat with Diabetes , Diabetes Nutrition , Portion Control Hamburger meat, by government standards, is fresh or frozen ground beef without anything else added and can contain no more than 30 percent fat by weight. At the supermarket, hamburger meat is labeled with its percentage of lean meat and percentage of fat, such as 80/20 or 93/7. Not so at a friend's barbecue or a ballpark grill. Here are some good rules of thumb: -- A 3-ounce serving of cooked meat is just right -- there's no need to pile on extra patties or order a large burger unless you share. -- Get your hamburgers cooked how you like them (as long as the internal temperature reaches 160 degrees F for safety) because the fat content doesn't differ much based on doneness. -- Spread condiments gingerly, but feel free to use a generous amount of this low-calorie flavor enhancer: mustard.

Can Diabetics Eat Beef?

Can Diabetics Eat Beef?

People with diabetes can eat just about any type of food as part of a balanced, portion-controlled meal or snack. The trick is knowing how much of each type of food to eat. A standard serving of lean beef, as part of a sandwich or plate of food that also includes vegetables and whole-grain foods, is a well-balanced meal for a diabetic. People with diabetes are at increased risk of developing heart disease, according to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases. As a result, the diet recommended by the American Diabetes Association is a heart-healthy, plant-based diet that includes lower-fat sources of protein such as lean beef, but in measured portions. Lean cuts of beef that contain less than 10 grams of fat and less than 4.5 grams of saturated fat in a 3-1/2 ounce serving include tenderloin, strip steak, shoulder roast, round steak and 95 percent lean ground beef. Extra-lean cuts of beef that contain less than 5 grams of fat and 2 grams of saturated fat per serving include tenderloin, eye of round roast, top round, bottom round and top sirloin. Both lean and extra-lean cuts contain less than 95 milligrams cholesterol per serving. Choice and select cuts contain less fat than prime cuts. According to the American Diabetes Association, a balanced meal includes 2 to 5 ounces of meat. Another way for diabetics to look at it is that beef and other proteins should take up about one-quarter of the plate at each meal. A good diet includes lots of whole-grain foods and fresh fruits and vegetables. Grilling, broiling, pan-broiling, stir-frying, roasting and braising are all good methods of preparing lean cuts of beef, according to the Texas Beef Council. Different cuts of beef lend themselves to different methods. Eye round or sirloin steak is best sli Continue reading >>

Hamburger Bun Recipe Here

Hamburger Bun Recipe Here

Some of you know I have been trying to 'invent' a good hamburger bun, and I succeeded a couple of weeks ago, so decided I would post it here. These are made in a muffin top pan, they have a good flavor, are a lot like bread and will stand up to about anything you throw at them, including angus burgers. Don't let the pork rinds scare you off, you won't even know they are there. These only have about 2 carbs each. So that the buns won't end up being grainy, I put the pork rinds through the food processor, then measure them, then run them through the coffee grinder. I do the same with almonds when making the almond flour. 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons pork rinds, ground fine In a small bowl, use a fork to beat together the eggs, Splenda, baking soda, mayonnaise, salt, garlic powder and onion powder. Stir in the almond flour and pork rinds. Spoon the mixture evenly into the wells of the pan. Remove from pan immediately and let cool. Can be cut in half with a serrated knife, or use 2 to make a bun. After cooling, I cut them in half, place 2 in each Ziploc vacuum bag, pump out the air and freeze for later use. When we go out to eat, I take a bag out of the freezer and pop it in my purse. I forgot to mention, you can put pork rinds in a baggie then roll with a rolling pin or glass turned on its side to chop the rinds fine enough before measuring them and putting them through the coffee grinder, so that would eleminate the need for a processor. You can try making them without grinding any further. I tried it and they weren't fine enough for my taste, that is why I started putting them through the coffee grinder. Thank you for your helpful response. My OH reminded me that back in the recesses of our cupboard we do indeed have a small coffee grinder that I had purchased for grindin Continue reading >>

Classic Hamburger For Two Recipe - Eatingwell

Preheat grill to medium-high (or see Stovetop Variation). Combine onion, oil and 1 teaspoons ketchup in a small saucepan. Cover and cook over medium-high heat, stirring often, until the onion is softened, 4 to 6 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low, uncover and cook, stirring occasionally, until very soft, 5 to 8 minutes more. Transfer to a medium bowl and let cool for a few minutes. Meanwhile, combine the remaining 1 teaspoons ketchup, mayonnaise, relish and vinegar in a small bowl. Set aside. Add beef, Worcestershire (or steak sauce) and pepper to the onion and gently combine without overmixing. Form into 2 patties, about inch thick. Oil the grill rack (see Tip).
