I wonder what that's all about Christina?
I have heard you and others mention blood sugar 101 before, I am going to check that site out.

That's that "second spike" I mentioned.
From what I understand, it can be caused by the types of food you eat and/or "delayed stomach emptying" (gastroparesis).

Also, say you have a muffin made with 2 different types of flour + a sweetener or some fruit. Each ingredient could be broken down into simple sugars at different rates and affect your blood sugar individually.

For some interesting blood sugar charts, google "Jimmy Moore Julian Bakery". (It should be the first result; I don't see a date on the blog entry but the date above the first graph is May 25, 2011.) These graphs are why I decided to test at 15-minute intervals, instead of 1-hour and 2-hour--at least when checking how a certain food affects me. One of the breads he tested caused 3 different spikes over 105 minutes!!! All of the breads caused spikes at 15 or 30 minutes, and by 60 minutes his blood sugar was close to his starting number (but continued to change over the next 2 hours).

Probably, if it takes you about 15 minutes to eat?
