It was a small American-style restaurant. Buddies, to be precised. No carb info, so I had to guesstimate. I wanted to inject some time before we ate, so whilst we were waiting to be seated, I planned what to order (triple-decker BLT with fries) and then eyed up everything coming out of the kitchen doors until I saw a sandwich coming out, so I could try and line up the carbs and the insulin. The sandwiches were 3 slices of bread and the chips were just a standard bowlful. Eyeing it up, I guesstimated 60g carbs for the sandwich and 50g for the chips. On a 1u:7g, that worked out at 15u. I split it 10/5 over 2 hours (10 up front, 5 2 hours later). So 10u at 2pm, 5 at 4pm.
6pm, and I'm feeling rough. I knew I was high - but part of me was putting off testing (I hate getting the carb guess wrong). Anyway - it was 15.3. Bleugh. 2 glasses of squash and 4u of Novorapid later and we left Northampton. I'm now (7:20pm) at 9.9.
My thoughts: chips were far fattier than I predicted, thus a slower release? Ah, learning curve. I seem to be having a lot of those.
