Re: [IP] Re: Cardio thingy

I read somewhere a long time ago that when you quit smoking, your metabolism
slows down 10%.  Maybe that's the cause for the increased BG levels.  And
then again, it's hard to quit smoking, so maybe the stress of quitting adds
to the BG levels as well.  When I snack on veggies, I have to bolus for
them.  Even though they're low in carbs, they're still carbs.  Also,
fat-free dressings usually have more sugar and carbs in them too, so I go
for regular dressings.
