Wow, those are good prices! Too bad I just bought 100 more test strips for my Bayer Contour...otherwise I'd consider switching. Even at Costco, 100 test strips are about $100.

Maybe next time I need more strips, I'll see what the reviews on that monitor are...overall those are very good prices.

I’ve been conducting my own, simplified N=1 studies on different flours, including products by Low Carb Foods and CarbQuik. It would be gross to just eat flour, so I bake ¼ cup of flour into a flan base of Hood Calorie Countdown milk, EggBeaters, no sugar vanilla, Truvia, and baking powder. The flan base has no effect my blood sugar. I take my fasting blood sugar first thing in the morning, eat 1 ramekin of the flan + flour to be tested, and test again after ½ hour and again 1 hour after eating. My highest blood sugar readings seems to peak at around 30 minutes to 1 hour (and so does Jimmy Moore’s) and I don’t want to prick my finger 10 times every morning. Anyway, my results show that LC Food have less of a blood sugar response than CarbQuik and Carbolose flour. LC Food pan flour and cake flour are the winners. CarbQuik, carblose flour and inulin are the losers. I used to eat CarbQuik every morning in my cranberry scones. Now I have to reformulate my recipe to substitute LC Food flour for the CarbQuik. If you want to see a graph of my results, see the attached PowerPoint slide. If you think I’m freakin’ crazy, please disregard this message.
