    As far as I was aware carb intake only had a positive pressure effect on blood sugar control, hence the Insulin spike to bring it down and by reducing carbs only reduced the size of the spike closer to baseline as determined by ones body.

    I was not aware that a non carb intake caused instant Hypoglcemia, causing insulin levels to plummet.
    The protein in egg whites is very unstable, it's known to cause hypoglycemia, and the flavonoids in dark chocolate cause a sharp decline in blood sugar as well. It's not the carbs, per se, it's those two foods in particular.

    Somebody's being pouty today.
    I saw 30-40 carbs, and no real source of sugar, that's all.

    Actually if you wanna add carbs add a 28oz can of crushed tomato's to that ground beef and veggie scramble. I make this sometimes. I make it just like marinara and cover the whole mess with it. Thats like 50+g of carbs added right there.

    Can't quite seem to get your story straight there, Derp.

    My English is sloppy and lazy since I don't give a singular fuck, sorry, didn't feel like explaining something simple the first time around. It's well documented, I thought, that both of those foods have an inverse relationship with blood sugar.

    Anyway, stop bothering me, you're distracting me from finishing the last episode of Hemlock Grove

    Just a cursory glance around the net indicates, those in the know, Hypoglycemics, promote the use of Egg whites and dark chocolate as an aid to manage their conditions.
    One would have to assume they are just as informed about their issues as individuals here, both just being internet forums.

    I guess I should've known people would argue about the fat vs. carbs issue, so I guess I'll have to decide that for myself. Should I assume, thought, that I shouldn't go too much higher on protein?

    So, you assume something that cannot possibly raise blood sugar in any way somehow regulates blood sugar in hypoglycemics? Good to know you can't google very well

    Let's just have our own conversation over here, then... How are you feeling, other than the hunger? Energy, mood, cycle, skin, etc.?

    Derp, hypoglycemic people like egg whites and dark chocolate because these do not spike one's blood sugar much, thereby helping them to stay on an even keel.
    Something does not spike blood sugar=/=something causes blood sugar crashes.

    No, let's just forget about her entirely and have our petty little fights. Again.

    But srsly, to the OP, I do think you probably do need more food in general. The macro stuff is fine tuning.
