Here’s the majority of today’s readings.
You can see small impact of breakfast which was the same 3 eggs and 1/2 cup blueberries as yesterday but no toast or jam. What a difference that made. Note too the dip in my glucose right before awakening and the rise as I got up. The normal stress of standing upright and waking in the morning will raise your glucose some. Notice the good glucose control overnight when the body isn’t trying to metabolize a Star Crunch but is essentially fasted? Powerful.
Lunch was a 1/2 pound of delicious beef brisket. There was no impact or elevation on my glucose. Dry rub BBQ is one of the best options to limit sugar intake as almost all BBQ sauces have added sugar.
The blue arrow indicates an elevated glucose associated with a stressful situation. We should be cognizant that our body responds to stress with elevated glucose. This is why the fourth pillar of good health is peace, or stress management.
Tonight’s dinner is going to be one of my all time favorite meals, Little Joe’s pizza and breadsticks. There’s no doubt what’s going to happen but it will be interesting to see the impact it has. Stay tuned for a full report later on.
