Re: [IP] Square wave bolus

    Hi, the reasoning for my sqaure waving a bolus at parties is that
whenever I stop eating for an extended period of time, I just hit suspend
and start again to cancel the square wave bolus, so I don't get low (from
stopping eating).  This way, it's a matter of stop bolusing when I stop
eating instead of constantly remembering TO bolus every few bites.  It just
works for me.  Everyone's got to figure out what works for them :)
ciao, Brian
