In November 2022, I opted to try a continuous glucose monitor (CGM) to track my blood sugar readings. Granted, I am not diabetic, however my father and my aunt are diabetics and I had gestational diabetes during my 2nd pregnancy. I’m a bit of a data nerd and like to see how my body responds to the things I eat. So, I signed up for a program through Zoe and started following the app and logging my food. After I completed the 14 days, I then stumbled upon Glucose Goddess and want to try another 14 days with the CGM. Here’s the data from the first trial.
I felt that my blood glucose was actually pretty well maintained. My average reading was 94 and I fluctuated from 72-138. That’s pretty much carrying on with my regular lifestyle: protein shake for breakfast, whole food plant based meal for lunch, and regular dinner and a snack before bed. After reading the Glucose Revolution book, I find that I have an even better understanding of what I can do to improve my stability and consistency of my glucose curve. 2nd trial coming soon!
I opted to try the CGM again for a two week period. Similar results with the diet/nutrition and knowledge that I had from before. Biggest issue is will power.
Breakfast: ACV water when wake up. Vedge protein shake
Lunch: PBM or balance of veggies to protein w ACV
Snack: Vedge protein shake
Dinner: ACV, balance of veggies and protein
Kept wine/bevies to 1-2 on weekend only. My body just doesn’t like it and I sleep like crap. If I am to have alcohol, it’s better at lunch for me so it doesn’t mess up my sleep.
