Re: [IP] Fish and levels

Do your bgs remain low, or do the rise later than expected?  If you normally
eat a fairly low fat beef, and then choose salmon, the fat content could be
the difference.  The darker parts of salmon (at least on the pink variety it
looks a bit gray) are quite high in fat.  This is the "good fat", but it
will still decrease the rate that your body takes in the carbs you have
eaten.  We buy the inexpensive pink salmon and smoke it ourselves, but after
doing this for years I have found that I'm much better off if I remove the
fatty portions.
Take care,
