CGM Day 8: It takes one day

After last week’s daily deluge of carbs this week I plan to be much more moderate in my intake.

Today, breakfast was just a few scrambled eggs which had no impact. Lunch was a protein shake I like to make from About Time Protein powder with added MCT oil. Again there was no impact.

Dinner was the only meal that showed any increase in my blood sugar. It consisted of roasted chicken, fresh corn on the cob, steamed carrots, and some Colbyjack cheese. The elevation wasn’t enough to push me over 100mg/dL however.

So the lesson I’d like to impart here is that it only takes one day of change to see an impact on your health. Studies show that by the third meal of a low carb nutrition plan there is measurable improvement in someone’s insulin resistance. The time to change is right now.

I heard a proverb one time that said the best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago. The second best time is right now. Make your next meal the first meal of a new way of life. If you need help, call my office. That’s what I do.
