Re: [IPk] Square Wave Bolus



Just a comment from my own brief experience. I have used the square wave,
not for certain types of food, but for a particular style of eating pattern.
The usual ones are 'grazing' eg at a buffet or barbecue, and during a long
drive when I often have some sweets or a packet of biscuits throughout the
drive.
