If you are wondering why the thread title is as such, it is because I have just eaten half of a lovely Spanish omelette from LIDL
The carbohydrate content of the spanish omelette was 56g per 100g of omelette. The total omelette was 500g. So my portion was 250g.
56*2.5 = 140g of carbohydrate in what I was about to eat. Normally, I would inject 14 units of insulin for this. However, after eating the other half yesterday and injecting too much, I chose to inject a mere 3 units today.
My BG has just crashed.
Hence, the betrayal of the omelette's nutritional information as to indicate my correct course of action
Yesterday I could put the drop down to significant exercise. Today I haven't exercised at all, so it's difficult to attribute another cause beyond very high glycaemic index of carbohydrates in the Spanish omelette. This is especially true as I added cheese (strong in fat and protein), which slows down the absorption of the carbohydrate into my system.
