The sugar on the bagel/donut should be part of the total Cho content of it.
To test indiviual foods for your own respones, check Bg before eating, bolus
your estimate, and check 1 hr, 1 1/2hr, 2 hr, 2 1/2 hour after, and then
before the next meal (variation relates to type of insulin), and if BG is
30-50 points higher than starting point at 1 1/2 -2 hours, then the bolus was
probably the right amount.  There can be other variables in the mix, but this
usually works when BG is in target range to start with. Again, YMMV.
