The point is to find your peak. If you're peaking at 2 hours, you have

What doesn't make sense is that most of the people who are so adamant
about testing at 1 hour instead of 2 are those who eat a higher fat
and higher protein diet which will delay a spike.
Theoretically, it will, but we all vary; I can't seem to find a "pizza
effect" in any of my meals at all. ?So far, Smylin is not delaying my
peak, though it's supposed to slow gastric emptying.
That's kind of the point, we have to test to find our own peaks.
I'm all for people testing as often as they want...every hour on the
hour if they choose to. ?But to advise others to test at 1 hour when
they're eating higher fat and higher protein diet is not good advice
Agreed. ?Luckily, people are being advised to find thier own peaks, not
to test at any specific magic time that works for everyone.
In the post you're replying to with this objection, the bit you snipped
was Nicky explaining that she used to peak at 90 minutes and now peaks
at 45-60. ?Hey, we don't even have to compare to each other, our *own*
That looks good when you type it but it's not a true representation of
what is foisted here by a few. There is a definite condescending and
reprimanding attitude in here whenever someone says they test at two
hours. Then it becomes "what?" "are you serious?" "all us star
bellied sneetches test at 1 hour". I stand by my point...the same
people who push the 1 hour or you're an idiot testing are the same
ones who eat a higher fat and protein diet which would usually delay
the spike. So their heavy handed advice doesn't seem to make sense.
Well Kurt, I see you just won't let go of your preconceived ideas
about the manner in which people express opinions or offer advice. You
read motives into what is actually said, and it seems that nobody
offering any advice that differs from yours, is labelled as
condescending or reprimanding, or pushy. You accuse them of insult
when there isn't any.
I've been reading what you have to say, in the hopes that some gems
would drop out of the junk, but so far, nothing.
You can answer this, or not. It will make no difference at all.
