Some sites have an option to contact them. If Cracker Barrel does, then send them an email requesting this information. I did this once with another vendor and got a reply with the information I needed.

Another thing to consider is that if enough people ask for this type of information, they will add it to thier sites. Just a thought.

Just a thought... google any Lemon pepper trout recipe online, and use the ingredients to enter it on the tracker. It may not be precise, but at least it will give you a ballpark figure!

"The real secret of success is enthusiasm..." thanks, Walter P. Chrysler. I believe it. That's what I want in my life--to give my imagination a chance, to live with energy and enthusiasm!
P.S. I looked up enthusiasm, and it says the root words mean God within... interesting...!

Ralph Waldo Emerson said 'Life belongs to the energetic.' But you don't have to be frenetic and hyper--some energy is quiet and steady, like a heartbeat... and that works too! LOL

That's a great improvement. I was where you are. Prior to January I was having readings in the 200-350 range, (even fasting). But now my fasting is usually 110-130 & post meal is typically around 150-200. Still much work to do, but my dr was pleased, my A1c had dropped from 7.8 to 6.9 in 6 months.

Keep working it, you can do this.

Cracker Barrel does not publish their information. I looked. Some other sites have partial information such as calories, total fat, and total carbs but do not break them down any further. I am sure that there should have been some sat. fat and more sodium that I would really want but have no way to tell. Local to where I work when out of town there are few places to eat. There is a diner, a chinese take out, Quiznos, pizza, Cracker Barrel, and McDonalds. I try and stay away from the pizza and McDonalds for now. So I will try and make the best choices out of what is available.

That first good report is very exciting, I know. I remember watching the commercials on TV about the latest and greatest glucose testing meters and they always showed a final reading in the low 100's and I would tell my wife that I would probably kill (not really) to get a number like that. Now, after a lot of work, patience and time. my numbers are normally in the mid 70's in the morning. Life is good and it is pretty obvious to me that you are on the down hill side of this journey.

SCROSY8 and MOJOSOUND...Good job on getting control of those pesky BG#'s. It almost always is within YOUR control. Keep the carbs in check and get a bit of exercise going everyday and the numbers stay good. YOU can do this!

MOJOSOUND, have you tried going to CrackerBarrels site and getting the Nutritional details on the meal you ordered? Their Nutritional info covers the calories, cars, and sodium counts of most items on their menu. In fact all the chain restaurants have great Nutrition facts available.

emoticon So here's hoping we can get those Blood Glucose numbers into the healthy range, and keep them there. Take the control back from Diabetes, and YOU be the one in control. emoticon

If it's to be, It's up to ME!

Good job! I also had a bad report from the doctor at the beginning of this month. Stress and traveling for work had me eating out and just plain eating a lot. July 9th I had the appointment and have turned it around. I test before every meal and 2 hours after. I log all of my food here. I post my calories, carbs, fat, protein, sodium, and fiber on facebook so my friends can keep me accountable. I am still eating out but making better choices. This time, I got a fridge in my hotel room and got the foods I can eat so I can control my breakfast better. Trying to make healthier choices at lunch and dinner. Steamed chicken and vegetables with brown rice has become almost a staple. Cracker Barrels's lemon pepper trout, salad, green beans, and mashed potatoes also works but I can't know how much salt there is.

Be encouraged. If you want it and are willing to work at it then the numbers will come down. Mine have.

I tested this morning and my sugar was 169 and usually I have been over 200 and at time 400 and over, I know, that is bad. My Doctor has been on me, she has stressed to me to watch my diet and exercise, but admittedly I have not done anything. I have only started watching my diet and I exercised yesterday and I will walk again today. I will admit I am starting to feel better with my blood sugar going down and I have been drinking at least 8 glasses of water which I didnt do and counting carbs all of these changes are helping. I am not the best dieter in the world but I am tying
