RE: [IP] Pizza



Nope, it is not exclusive to pumping.  I am still on MDI and it throws
me curves.  Depends on the amount of cheese usually.  As Michael said
the store ones are easier to eat carb wise but not as tasty.  I usually
weigh it, go by the exchange book (two slices about 60g) and then four 
hours later take 2 more units (I am 1:11g at night).  This seems to do 
the trick, but the dietician scolds me for it since "fats" are "free."
Last night I had pizza:
6:30 148        (Right now my goal number is 150 before meals)
8:30 127
10:30 159 (took 2H)
12:30 157
6:30am 164

So I think that is good for me and my goals. I also think some of the
pizza problem in addition to fat, is that it is high carb also.  But 
10 years ago it didn't bother me at all.  It must be I am getting old. :)

Can someone answer a question for me?  I've seen posts about problems with
eating pizza and pumping.  I'm wondering if anyone knows why that is so.  I
occassionally eat pizza and am on MDI, hoping to be pumping soon.  I don't
have a problem with it right now, is it just that it's difficult to figure
the carbs?  We usually make pizza at home, and it includes a lot of vegies
on it (broccoli, yes I LIKE broccoli, tomatoes, mushrooms, etc.)  But, we
sometimes like to go out for pizza also.  I was just wondering about this.
Thanks.  :)
