JFYI, I repeated my experiment today just to make sure it was not a fluke. I had literally all complex carbs whole plant based foods for dinner. BG bf starting was 85. I had a 1/2 sweet potato, a cup of pinto beans, a huge veg. salad, a huge pile of steamed turnip greens, and a couple handfuls of salted peanuts . Using the cron-o-meter, I ate about 85 grams of carbs = approx. 622 calories.

1 hour PP = 90
2 hour PP = 96
3 hour PP = 92

I do not plan on doing this on a regular basis tho. I do know it will work if you can do it. Being a vegan who eats only fish, I can use this as a tool to keep my BG from spiking depending on my meals. Exercising like this for brief periods after meals is not very practical. I did not even do the HIIT. I just exercised moderately on a stationary bike 4 times at 1 hour intervals....equivalent to getting out and doing a 10 minute brisk walk (4 times).

Current medical conditions = panic disorder, severe anxiety, and moderate depression. I also have lumbar spinal stenosis with increasing pain in my buttocks and legs. I have not been officially diagnosed with diabetes yet but my A1C has gone from 5.5 in 2010 to 5.8 (pre-diabetes) in 2014. I am trying to half progression of illness with diet and exercise. Current Rx meds I take = celexa and valium

I am finding, over time and careful eating, I can raise my leafy green carbs without changing my BG patterns. Which is nice because at first I really had to eat lower volume than my body wants.

Before vaycay I tried experimenting with all green meals (not that high in carbs) eaten after any protein or fat I had eaten earlier had time to be processed. They worked, BG testing never went over 112 and dropped very fast. Once I have finished recovering from being ill, I plan to repeat that test.

This learning what each individual body needs (not can handle, but responds to most favorably) is motivating, isn't it?
