I'm new to GD and have been testing for one day. The dietitian had some specific guidelines all hinging on number of calories that equal a starch or veggie etc. I'm allowed 6 starches a day, and so forth. So, my question is, if I go over my allowances but still keep my numbers in check, is that ok?! (I'm within the weigh range guidelines.) Yesterday I tried to stay within her ranges and was starving all day. For breakfast I tried a whole (woo hoo) English muffin with peanut butter and was 115 two hours later. Last night I had a cup of ice cream as a snack and my faster number was good. Is my main goal just to keep my sugars within range or am I missing a piece of this picture?
