Re: [IP] pizza and blood sugars

Hi Julie,

The thought behind this delayed increase in blood sugars with pizza is that
that two hours later, your blood sugars may be quite fine.  But four hours
later, your carbs are now fully entering your blood stream after being
slowed down by fat.

My doctors have always suggested I eat the toppings of the pizza and discard
the crust (which is a where a majority of your carbs come from)  I just
haven't had the will power to not eat a whole slice of pizza.

Many people with do a square wave or an extended bolus when eating pizza.
It is a trick that is acquired only after eating a lot of pizza and

Good luck to you!
