I've noticed that if I have a bar in the evening that my bs is slightly elevated the next morning. Nothing drastic but the morning after having a lemon bar my bs was 126. The next night I had the chai latte and it was 110 in the morning.

If I have the bar earlier in the day though it doesn't seem to bother my bs levels.

Has anyone else experienced this?.

I've even had it happen with the diabetic bars too. I love the PB ones. My dinner on the night before it was 126 was salad and chicken breast. Everything was on plan.

I sure was happy this morning of a 110 reading.

Thank you both for responding.

Hi. My health coach said that I should only have bars twice a week, but not have them at bedtime. I use reg Medifast products because there is not enough variety in the diabetic products. Anyway, I had some trouble with my BS the next morning when I was eating them at bedtime. Now when I eat a bar, I eat it for my mid-afternoon meal. Hence, no prob...

Wow Donna, 83 is a nice wake up reading.

I've decided to be like chappy and not have the bars at night if I can. Sometimes life doesn't work out that way though. Last night my bs after dinner but before pudding was I had the pudding. This morning it was 105. I sure am happy. I'm only on metformin right now and it seems to be working just fine on it's own..

LOL@delicate. I know what you mean though. We all do what we have to do. Glad to know you are doing well though. *hugs*.

I eat both types of bars. I count the carbs since that's more important than the sugar. I always eat them in the afternoon. They make my BS go up higher than the other meals, but that's expected since they have 20+ carbs and the rest are closer to 10 grams. I'm not liking the bars too much these days. I only have them once in awhile. I used to have 1 a day, but I'm getting tired of the taste...

It's true you shouldn't have the bars for the first or the last meal of the day...
