Blood sugar reading before eating: 96
This reading of 96 was after waking up hungover from drinking hard the night before.
Blood sugar reading after eating: 224
This reading was 1 hour after finishing my chicken sandwich and coleslaw. I continued to sip the Coke Zero for a bit afterwards.
If you’ve never heard of a BLT New Orleans chicken sandwich before, it’s because I don’t think Burger King sells it in America. It’s basically just a chicken sandwich with bacon and jalapenos.
So I ordered coleslaw instead of fries, and of course the Coke Zero. And I paid 70 cents more for extra jalapenos.
It’s pretty easy to predict that this was going to be terrible for the blood sugar, right? As for whether a Whopper would be just as bad, I’m gonna go out on a limb and guess YES.
I’m not supposed to eat beef because of my gout, but I might have to test a Whopper sometime in the future because I love Whoppers. Also, um, “science.”
