I know something like a snicker's candy bar will cause my blood glucose to sky rocket. Here is my hypothetical question. Let us say a snicker's candy bar raises my BG by 100 points. So if my FBG is 90, I will be at 190 after I eat the candy bar. My question is let's say I cut the candy bar into 4 equal pieces and I eat just one piece. 100 / 4 = 25. Now instead of 190, will my blood sugar only rise to FBG + 25 = 115. Is my thinking correct or not? Thanks for any replies.
Hi Overdrive. I like your logic . It would be an interesting experiment. Let us know how everything turned out.

27 Mar 20:
A1C: 6.2%
Cholesterol: 170
Crestor 5mg
Metformin 1000mg
BP: Cozaar 50mg

Hoping to work myself back to the 5% Club.

Wishing y'all Peace & Love!
