Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
Would really appreciate some pro advice on carbs who are gluten or better yet, grain free. Just starting again after 4yrs of being off of a bike since I was diagnosed with diabetes and sorta gave up. Trying to get my life and my health back!:love:

Have you done an isolated food test?
I get quick high blood sugar from eating , rice, potatoes, and beans.
Try to never eat them.
Corn products I can eat and is good for my long rides.
I do not eat any grains at all. I do eat minimum amount of potato but purple or sweet only. I eat lots of beans and use bean flours. No rice or corn in my diet at all anymore. I have not done the isolated food test but since I have given up grains completely my blood sugar has been in the normal range. I am concerned because I used to eat whole grain bread with peanut butter before a ride and whole grain pasta the day before, but since I have stopped eating bread and pasta of any kind I am not sure what I should be eating and am really wanting to know what the carb, protein, fat ratio (ideally) should be. I get a lot of healthy fats because of the nut flours I use.
