But just as important is staying away from the wrong foods — those that can spike your blood sugar.

    I am only very new to the team. But if it's foolish to eat grilled chicken with fruit at Chik FilA, or chicken on whole grain at Panera, or chicken teriyaki with brown rice at another "fast food" joint, AND to check sugar after every such meal, then I must be missing something. I have been eating the above and similar for 2 mos and my recent A1C was 5.3. I realize things change and I will not always be able to do this, but I think the brush used in this post against "fast food" may be a bit broad?

    Really, Shub, this is not the first time you have made pronouncements about how nobody at all should be eating something you prefer to avoid. Everybody gets to make their own choices. You are not "educating" anybody, you are being a jerk by presuming everybody ought to share your dietary preferences. It would be nice if you could arrange an attitude adjustment. I myself am sick of reading your attacks.

    Indeed, Giventofly.
    The Big Breakfast at McDonald's, the one without the pancakes, is a pretty low carb, inexpensive meal in a pinch, if you don't eat the hash browns or biscuit. Almost no carbs in scrambled eggs and sausage! The Egg McMuffin is only 30 carbs, if you can safely consume that many. Or take the top muffin half off for 15 carbs.
    The point is that there is something we can eat almost anywhere, if we keep our mind open to it.
