Are you ready to take the plunge into wearing a CGM? Or maybe you’ve already been playing with one but want to hone in and understand your data? Want to know how variables like fasting, caffeine, stress, and alcohol impact your blood sugar? Tune in as we interview Kara Collier, fellow RD and Co-Founder of Nutrisense, a company that provides real time glucose data and an easy to use app. Learn how a CGM can help you identify a food sensitivity, how OMAD and other forms of fasts could impact your blood sugar, and why a CGM can be useful even in non-diabetics.
In this episode, we interview Kara on the use of continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) technology, particularly in non-diabetics for the purposes of health optimization, disease prevention, and reversing metabolic dysfunction. We discuss what to look for in your blood sugar trends, how and when to implement tools like berberine or adaptogens, and how to set up experiments while you’re wearing a CGM to best understand your own body!
