You are not what you eat. You are what your body does with what you eat.
In my 19 years as a diabetic following a low carb lifestyle, I have long wanted an unbiased source of information on the effects of various food products on blood glucose. I like the convenience of packaged and processed food. I’m an engineer – I don’t have a problem with engineered food. Unfortunately, most food products have been engineered to reduce cost or remove fat, rather than to minimize blood glucose spikes. I have found products labeled “low carb”, or that list a fiber count nearly equal to the total carb count, that cause my blood glucose to spike.
Consumers need unbiased information on what food products actually work on a low carb diet. This web site is my attempt to fill that gap.
Initially, I focus on food tests and nutritional analysis. I will also review nutrition recommendations and guidelines from health organizations, including government agencies, NGOs and insurance companies.
I have no training in nutrition beyond a single day of class 19 years ago. I have no license to practice medicine or dietetics. Consult your health professional before using the information on this site.
Test results presented herein were all compiled from a single test subject. Your results may vary.
Nutritional analyses were conducted with what I thought was the best information available, but I cannot guarantee accuracy.
