Bagels ALWAYS have massive amounts of carbs!!  That's because they're
made of white flour (no fiber) AND are very dense. If a medium-sized
bagel has about 60g of carbs, then a large one could have 100 or 120!

I think Jan's advice is good: do an experiment -- take a certain amount
of insulin for the bage and check BGs 1 1/2 - 2 hours after eating. If
you're high, and STAY high, then try a little more insulin next time and
do the same measurements. You will eventually find out the right amount
for you. 

Good luck!
