Re: [IP] Re: "Pizza effect

Ryan, I agree there may be other factors, but I'd still question your 
numbers regarding the carbs in the slices you eat.  Next time you 
have pizza, pull off the cheese, then dry the slice in a warm oven 
and weigh it.  I bet it weighs a good bit more than 1 oz.
	But here's an experiment you can do.  Eat 2 slices of pizza 
and bolus accordingly.   no square wave.  record your BG every hour 
for 5 h.    Next day, go get some measured amount of pizza dough, 
some mozzarella, and tomato sauce,  figure the carbs, then eat it, 
bolus, and repeat the BG measurements.  Give us a report on what you 
   The rest of us can take a poll on who thinks the BG response will 
be different and by how much.  Winner gets one of Liz's home made San 
Franciscan pizzas!

>Way to go Liz!!!!   You get an A+, especially because your conclusion
>fits perfectly with all my preconceived notions.

>>>>>>While I'm sure that accounts for SOME occurances of the pizza
effect...it isn't a good explanation.  In the years I've been observing
this, it just doesn't make sense.
