    Default Im so hungry :(

    I am so hungry! I just ate some left over pasta from last night. I controlled myself but damn I wanted to just shovel the whole lot in! Lucky DD was sharing with me or I would have eaten it all. All I really want is to eat a big bowl of hot chips with gravy. I still have 22 weeks to go!Rant over.

    That sux! I was always hungry with ds1. Have you seen how potato, mashed is how I have it, goes for your levels. I really avoided it with my other pregs, but due to the 'roast' GD thread I have discovered I can actuality eat quite a bit of potato without going over and really fills me up. I've been having it at lunch with chicken and veg lately :-)

    Potato was great for me too, so much better than expected. I think part of it is you can eat the same weight of potato as rice but feel so, so much more satisfied. Loved roast potato!

    Good snacks that got me through were almonds and cheese.

    I can have a few roast potatos but I am too scared to go the chips and gravy. Just had a yummy chinese meal and my levels were 7.3.

    Maybe some homemade chips would be ok? You could do the 1-2 potatoes that you know are ok with your levels? Figuring out what you can and can't have is such a pain. I still get nervous doing my fasting levels, even though I've only had a couple over since starting testing.

    Rice was the worst for me! Asian-style noodles were not much better. I could only have about 3/4 of a cup.

    Cook pasta al dente and it lowers the GI.

    Chips were never that bad, but hard to stop at a small serve though.

    My levels are so weird. I had a regular twister meal from KFC on friday and my levels were 6.0. I thought they would be sky high. I wonder what the levels were a bit later on though because I know that fat can delay the high levels.

    Yep, fat makes a difference. The sauce you choose does too, eg. bbq or sweet chilli will be higher than mayonnaise or Caesar dressing.

    I switched to full cream milk once diagnosed. It didn't change my levels but helped me feel less deprived. My weight gain was spot on so didn't need to watch overall calories.

    Oh I can't imagine having to watch calories as well, that would be awful!
