Q I just checked out the link to the calorie book and if you click on it to "look inside" and then click "surprise me" down the left hand side it eventually takes you to a page where it shows Cals, carbs, protein and fat amounts per 100g. It's a later version of the book Sedge and I have.
Sedge, I did bolus insulin before eating the toast (OK immediately before, whereas I usually need to bolus ahead for anything with bread). I was flying around like a loony and had exactly 10 minutes before I had to be on the road to the hospital. The toast was Vogel soya and linseed bread at 14g per slice. It generally toasts better than Burgen. I had a smear of Peanut butter on it and bolussed for 20g carb, 4u according to my pump handset. By lunchtime I was back down to 4. As a contrast I had a roast dinner last night, roast pork with lots of lovely crackling, mashed sweet potatoes, runner beans, Kale sautéed with lardons and topped with goat's cheese followed by a fruit platter with Mango, paw paw, half a pear and berries and never went above 7.5.
I'm not trying to hijack Q's thread, I just wanted to put things into perspective regarding what insulin does and doesn't do.
