After last week’s blood glucose response test, I decided to try something with more carbs this time around.
The salami with mostly fat and protein didn’t significantly affect my blood sugar.
Conveniently enough, I have a container of steel cut oats that I bought a few months prior to starting the keto diet. It’s been about 10-11 months since I’ve had a bowl of oatmeal.
The only thing I added to these oats were water and salt.
This morning I decided to exercise relatively heavily with push-ups and kettlebell swings. This was mainly due to the fact that I didn’t get a chance to do this the previous day since I was traveling. For future glucose tests, I want to avoid exercise during the morning until all the numbers are in.
One thing I’ve read is that cinnamon makes you more sensitive to insulin, so I may want to duplicate this test in the future with a good amount of cinnamon mixed into the oatmeal.
Here are the results:
- Date: 9/1/2016
- Food: Organic Steel Cut Oats
- Fast: ~12 hours
- Base Blood Sugar: 90 mg/dL
- 1-Hour Response: 117 mg/dL
- 2 Hour Response: 100 mg/dL
