To Carb or Not To Carb
Day 4 of Diabetes Blog Week – To Carb or Not To Carb.
Ok, pet peeve out of the way.
I believe strongly in living life to its fullest despite having Type 1 Diabetes. I have run a marathon, I have done triathlons and I’m training for a Half-Ironman, and I have done an 8-hour Adventure Race. I also believe strongly in eating whatever I want despite having Type 1 Diabetes.
This may not be the best approach, but I don’t let this disease keep me from doing anything.
I do wish that my eating habits where better and that I ate less junk, but I’m pretty good at bolusing for anything I want. I have to utilized the Super Bolus technique some times to prevent a big spike followed by a low. I use a dual-wave to cover pizza. I am a world champion carb guesstimator for pasta and have no problems with Chinese food… wait, no… I ALWAYS have problems with Chinese food, but I digress…
Aside from being very careful what I eat before and after running/biking/swimming, I eat what I want.
