I would double check with your doctor also. How long to fast and what is a "carb" if they said "no carbs". Perfect Health Diet says that veggies "provide only enough glucose for their own digestion", so you don't really need to count them as a carb like you would other carbs, but I would double check.

But one meal w/o carbs is no biggie. Steak and eggs. Nom Nom Nom
Ok, I guess eggs have a few carbs... so just steak... big fat juicy steak. Nom Nom Nom emoticon

Oh, I see I am a day late to the party. So how'd it go? What did you have for dinner?

In any case a short fast won't hurt anyone. When you have to have surgeries, tests and colonoscopies you fast. My doctors even have me hold off on my meds many times.

Salad and a side of steamed veggies!

Depending on which test they are doing she does have to fast. I also have to fast after midnight before a cholesterol test.
I'd go for the eggs too! emoticon

How about scrambled eggs with crumbled turkey breakfast sausage in it?

I think I'd confirm with my doctor that this is the requirement, rather than just fasting for 'x' number of hours prior to the test.

Johnsontree....I would echo the question raised by Algebragirl: did your doctor tell you specifically not to eat any carbs for dinner before your glucose test?

In my experience, the requirement is simply that you do not eat anything for 8 hours before the glucose test....?! (I've never been told what I could have or not have prior to that time.)

In any case, certainly do whatever your doctor has said.... I hope it turns out very well for you! Take care,

I checked the last few days of my nutrition tracker and came up with chicken breast, tilapia, sirloin steak and decaf coffee. Good luck with this. Veggies have carbs and I can't even imagine what you should be eating.

Just curious: did your doctor tell you not to eat any carbs for dinner the night before your blood test?

Pretty sure all vegetables have carbs. Either fast entirely or treat yourself to a nice big steak. I'd take the steak, personally. ;)

I always like a steak salad with a poached egg to act as dressing. Check the veggies you put in the salad for carb content, but lettuces are good as are pretty much all of the cruciferous veggies.

We also like chicken roasted with brussels sprouts and rosemary and a salad.

Spark recipes does have a low- carb option when you are searching as well.

I have to do a bloodsugar test and for dinner I can't have carbs. Any suggestions?
