Re: [IP] pizza advice needed!


i'm still a novice myself, but here's what i've found
with "me", and see some for you.

looks like you have a really delayed fat problem.
you might want to experiement a bit more to see
if you react close to the same way with high fat
foods. then you'll know and be able to correct
right for it.

how much protein did the pizza have? often when
i have a high protein dinner, i wake up 300+.
protein turns into glucose 5-6hrs later. that might
be your rise there.
