Bread was always a weakness of mine, and once I was diagnosed with type one diabetes, it became not only an issue for my weight but my blood sugar, too. After a while, I got good at mastering the correct amount of insulin for some of my favorites, but factoring in timing, what else is on your plate, etc. makes it a very tricky endeavor. I started looking into low-carb bread and have been sticking to them ever since. I even bring one of my favorite low-carb buns to a local burger joint. For me, avoiding a blood sugar rollercoaster is worth the extra effort!
