Sounds like the initial bolus is too large. You might try a temp 
basal rate instead of a square wave. It is easier to interrupt and 
modify in the event you eat more. There is a HOWTO on doing this (was 
written for 506). My daughter finds it more convenient than the sq 
wave because she is a grazer.
