Still here, still waiting

No, I haven't taken the money and run off to a non-extradite Banana Republic. We're just waiting for the kits to arrive from the American Gut project. I do have the Bob's RM potato starch and a BG meter. Kids have even started coloring a few of the thank you post-cards. We're as ready as can be.

On the BG meter, I've been taking a few readings to try and get a feel for the meter and figure out what our baseline is. I think that the meter probably needs calibrated. Our 6:00AM pre-breakfast readings have consistently been in the upper 80's to mid 90's, plus a couple 100+. I'm not an expert on BG but that seems pretty high for a family goes pretty light on refined sugar. On the flip side, the two occasions where I've measured myself after a meal, the high reading was less than 130 and corresponded to about a 30 point delta. I think that is a fairly muted response, indicating good BG control.

If anyone knows, please feel free to comment. Thanks.
