LTINDOCEAN, to help you eat smaller portions of pasta start out by eating a large salad first. That will curb your appetite so that you don't need as much pasta to be satisfied.

You may not need to give up pasta.....just use portion control and be sure to include a nice big salad with the meal to help lower the calories.

Rice and pasta do cause blood sugar spikes because they are simple carbs that metabolize quickly (therefore the spike). To balance out the blood sugars when you are having pasta, have some protein with the meal and limit the amount of pasta you are eating. Changing to whole wheat or multigrain pasta and brown rice might help a bit. A serving of pasta, 2 or 3 meatballs, and a nice salad make for a nice meal.

Hi jhitch7
A type 2 diabetic friend of mine spikes badly when he eat pasta. He said he has sprinkled crushed almonds on his pasta and his blood sugar doesnt spike so badly and comes back down more rapid. Myself iam not diabetic or male, so I am not sure how it works but give it a try. Good luck?

I'm 72 YO - Type II for ~15 years - progressed to Lantus. When I look at bread/pasta Glucose reading spikes - so I need to find the support and tools to improve control through diet and exercise - looking at going from about 230 to 185 (that's my Spark Goal). I'll need support with self-discipline. Looking forward to getting maximum benefit from this web site, support group and tools. emoticon
