    Default Baked dinner?

    Tonight we are having roast beef and vegies for dinner. Im wondering what my levels will be like after.. Im roasting pumpkin, carrot and potatoes and also having steamed corn, brocoli and cauliflower. Just wondering has anyone had good numbers after having a roast?

    My levels were always higher after a roast but still within the allowable range. I used to use a little bit of cheese sauce sometimes so that wouldn't of helped but as I said mine were always in range. It really depends on the individual person and how your body reacts but also the portion size especially if carbs are involved. My advice would be to make sure you aren't eating much roast potato and stack up on the veggies more

    Mine are usually fine after a roast, I just have a very small amount of potato (like 1/2a small one) and probably no corn. Enjoy your dinner :-)

    Lol I totally understand, my favourite thing ever is mashed potato so dinner was a bit of a struggle sometimes!

    Roasts are usually fine for me if I don't go overboard with the potato and sweet potato. Also watch out how much corn you have as it's a carb too.

    I use a website called calorie king to figure out how much I can have in a serve. That really helps.

    Forgot to say (and it's probably too late for tonight's roast but keep in mind for the future) the waxier the potatoes the better. I get much better results from eating kipfler or Dutch cream than the floury old sebago.

    We get carisma potatoes from Coles as they are low GI, and we eat them mashed most nights and quite often mixed with sweet potato. My levels seem to be ok after however I don't have a huge serve.
