GD Update

Wednesday, September 30, 2009

So I went to my appt today with my GD nurse and Dietician. I'm on a fairly simple plan.

Test Fasting blood sugar
Breakfast: 1 carb, 2oz protein, and 1 fat
Test sugar 2 hours after first bite
Snack: 2 carbs, optional protein
Lunch: 3 carbs, 3 oz protein, and 2 fats
Test sugar 2 hours after first bite
Snack: 1 carb, 1 protein
Dinner: 3 carbs, 3 oz protein, 2 fats
Test 2 hours after first bite
Snack: 1.5 carbs, 1oz protein

Viola! (1 carb = 1 serving = 15 grams of any given carbohydrate I choose)

I tested in front of my nurse to show her I knew how to work the machine and it was 155, but it was only 1 hour after eating breakfast. I tested again after what would have been my lunch time, but I didn't get to eat!! It was 83, which is to be expected because at that point I hadn't eaten in 5 hours. I did manage my afternoon snack (some sliced chicken breast, and a string cheese) and I am ready for dinner!

Anyway, just thought I'd put up my plan in case anyone else was wondering what a GD diet plan might look like. :)

Hey, thanks for the info! I just had my 1 hr GD test today, so I'm waiting on the news. I was curious what the diet might be like, so I appreciate you posting this! :-)

nice diet! i didn't follow mine like that, i just knew what not to eat and try to eat protein and carbs together. went to my nutritionist today and she said my numbers were awesome. can't wait for this to be over so i can go back to eating yummy food haha

Nicole, glad you appreciate it! It's simple, and fairly basic so I think anyone could follow it if needed.

Noelle, I don't follow it either. I told her flat out that I don't snack, never have, never will. LOL. And I'm lucky if I get in 3 meals a day, but she made me promise to at least eat 3 times a day. :P
