RE: [IP] LowCarb



Our bodies deal with fat two meals after you have eaten.  My body will show
higher BG up to 12 hrs after eating eating foods that contain large amounts
of fat.  Pizza is my number 1 enemy as well.  It isn't the carbs....it's the
fat that I have a hard time adjusting too.  All cheese's will have the same
effect.
