The Dreamfields' Pasta Fraud | Dietdoctor.com
Really interesting Jim. Thanks for that. The blood sugar measurements are the American version but work out high!
Dreamfields pasta shall be getting introduced to the bin when I get home from work. Have never eaten any, and not going to now.
Never tried Dreamfields because I found it hard to see how they could create a low carb pasta - so more reasons to avoid!
cheers me dears x
omg i was so close to doing my lcm order with this on. thankfully i changed my mind!
Thanks for that Jim...it explains why it triggers my IBS when I've tried. I gave it up when it did that!
I've always been suspicious of that pasta. Most 'patent pending' products are crap it seems.
I'm also suspicious of Maltitol now which is a shame because i'd love a marshmallow mudslide Atkins bar!
bumpity bump bump bump x
I have to say my blood sugars spike with normal pasta & my stomach bloats... with Dreamfields my sugars haven't spiked nor do I get the feeling of bloatedness. Am confused.com!
As I'm not in ketosis I've had some for lunch & will see how my blood sugars are at regular intervals afterwards.... then I'll try the same after the same quantity of regular pasta... I'm intrigued. x
oh yes let us know. do you have a monitor?
Yes have to have one. x
Oh, are you diabetic too? Don't you find that Atkins is just perfect for good blood sugar numbers?
Yes Atkins is the only thing that has worked.
Bloods before 4.8
Bloods 1/2 hour after 10.2 (usually only rises to about 6)
Nice before number! It's nice to know that I'm not the only diabetic that thinks this WOE is amazing.
I'm usually always in the 4's these days now... infact I have to watch out for hypos rather than hypers these days. Are you on any meds?
I'm type 1. I am insulin dependant. I'm using about half the insulin I was on before and my diabetes is more stable than it has ever been. Atkins is a diabetes success story.
Wow thats amazing... I was only diagnosed 2 weeks before I started this round of Atkins, I have PCOS too so have always felt better on this WoE.. I do find it bizarre how most diabetic suggested diets are so high in carbs!!
