Re: [IP] duration of pizza increases


My daughter, Laura also has a problems with her blood sugar spiking 8 hours
after eating pizza.  Typically, no other food digests this slowly but pizza
is a real problem for us for some reason.   Lately, I have been ordering the
pizza with 1/2 the normal amount of cheese and this has helped tremendously!
I think most pizzas must be loaded with a tremendous amount of cheese (more
than we may realize).  We really haven't even noticed the difference in
taste but it has made a HUGE difference in her blood sugar levels.
