Have you noticed certain foods spiking your blood sugar?

For me, cereal! Every time I have cereal I have problems with my numbers. Wondering what other culprit foods there might be.

Cereal, toast, french fries *cry*
I think the issue with the fries is that fat to carb ratio. Since the body uses insulin to deal with fat too.

Definitely cereal. Although that's usually when I don't measure it out first. If I eat only 2/3c. of Special K and 1/3 c. of skim milk I can then keep it under 140 2 hours after meals. If I don't measure it, i'm usually at 201 or so. I've tried several other kinds from bran flakes to an Atkins low carb cereal (I think that the box would have tasted better.....) and they all do the same thing unless carefully measured out.

Whole wheat English muffins do it too, unless I only eat 1/2 at a meal. Other than that, things have been pretty smooth.

I don't have diabetes anymore, but I did have gestational diabetes. Here are the foods that spiked my sugars:

any breads/chips/pasta
syrup (started using sugar-free, it's really good)
jelly (sugar-free is ok)

Cereal for me! I can't even look at it or they go up.
Chocolate *wail*
Really anything that has any grain of sugar in it.

Cheetos always seemed ok though, hehe.

Cereal, eggo waffles, biscuits, and fries were mine. If I ate extra scrambled eggs, I could sometimes get away with having 1 eggo waffle with next-to-nothing lite syrup instead of toast.
