The statement refers to one particular individual. Let's not forget that 
there are some people who need to bolus with Humalog or Novolog *after* they 
eat, even a few who bolus with Regular/Velosulin after eating, and many 
people (some with gastroparesis) who extend/square wave an entire bolus from 
30 minutes to several hours after eating a meal.  My point is...YMMV.
