Chili and 1/2 Cornbread Muffin

Chili. What says comfort food like a hot bowl of chili with cheddar cheese and sour cream?



Add a cornbread muffin and the perfect meal is sitting right in front of you!  I figured around 30 g carbs, 30 g protein, and 10 g fiber.  When I put the food in the program I almost cried. 53g carbs??!!??? NNNOOOOOOO!
Oh wait, I put one corn muffin in as a serving. I actually made a box that makes 6 muffins and made 9 muffins: 4 full size for the not-diabetic, I-can-eat-anything male person and 4 - 1/2 muffins for me. I ate my one, 1/2 serving, muffin which cut the carbs to 40g. WOW. That is a big difference in my opinion.  


Now the tests results:  (Drum roll please!)

Before


One hour                                                1.5 Hours                                                            2 Hours

I was surprised I didn't test higher. I wish I would have gotten a 30 minute test and I am going to try to improve on that by using the timer in my Gear. Still to stay under 150 made me happy. I am thinking fiber and fat may have helped. 
Keep on testing!!
Please comment if you have foods that you might want me to try so we can compare.
