For my lunch today I had a great big sandwich, a bag of crisps, gooseberry fool and chocolate bar. This weighed in at about 130g of carbs for lunch, which – frankly – is moderately insane.
What’s the highest amount of carbs you’ve shoved down your neck in one sitting?

That is reasonably high volume for a light lunch.
Of more concern is the timing of your meals. What time is breakfast in the Stripey household? Before bed?

I actually meant lunch yesterday, but was too lazy to correct it after hitting “post”. Please rest assured that the stripy* household has regular meals at normal times.
‘stripy’ as in ‘stripykat’ is always spelt without the “e” and a lower-case “s” – did you not refer to the style guide before posting?

Ah, I feel much calmer now. Although I feel a bit hypocritical as I’m about to dive into my lunch at 11:50am.
misspelt so you could correct with added marketing as always
If anyone needs a Kindle case I thoroughly recommend the stripycat tm products as high quality and excellently priced.
( @tim is that subtle enough?)

not joining in the high levels boasting (dont – cant – do that, makes me ill) but I do have a question for those of you that do: after a high counting meal (such as Tim’s lunch) do your post prandial peaks rise higher than after a normal meal? Or are they still at the same levels whatever size meal you eat? I’m just curious…

levels tend to drop and then rise – if I used the dual wave feature properly I could avoid that but it doesn’t seem to be much of a problem. So I guess after an hour or so BG levels are much the same whatever meal size. There are exceptions for the usual nemeses – fish and chips, etc., which just screw everything up for hours.

Other than going out for a meal, Lunch is always my worst meal of the day for carbs at about 100 (I have a yoghurt & a bannana rather than a fool)
it strikes me as nuts that what I consider a light bite requires soooo much insulin, never worked out a good solution to it though.
@annette – Yep I have noticed that mine do rise higher than normal afterwards before dropping which means I need to be careful with accepting correction advice from the meter. Weirdly, it seems to be worse since I’ve been on the pump which I can only put down to being slightly lucky with my lantus dosage times in the past taking some of the strain.
