I had experimented with different foods and diets previously, but nothing seemed to work well for me. I would lose a few pounds, then my metabolism would plateau, or I would go back to binge eating and feel super bad.
So I decided to give it a try.
What is Continous Glucose Monitoring?
As a background, a CGM is a small device that tracks your glucose levels continuously. You place the device on the back of your arm and wear it for 14 days. Insertion is painless, and the device can be worn in the shower while exercising and engaging in any of your daily activities. The sensor records food intake, daily activities, stress, and sleep. They all impact blood glucose levels.
My Experience with Nutrisense CGM
Through the use of a CGM (Continuous Glucose monitor), I kept track of my blood glucose levels in real-time. Having the insights from the CGM in the app, I knew how eating different types of food or doing different types of exercise impacted my lifestyle through my blood sugar levels.
I realized that I do not need to be extreme (fully cut carbs or go to the gym 6 times a week), instead, a 15 min walk after dinner can do the trick for me. So it is unique to how my body functions. Seeing those numbers in the app too made me feel more accountable and more strategic with my food choices. Sometimes cheating was worth it, and sometimes it wasn’t. I felt empowered to make those decisions.
What is impressive and doesn’t exist for other companies except for Nutrisense, is that I have been assigned a personal dietitian expert (all are registered dietitians). She helped me make sense of the numbers, guided me to try some experiments, and learned new things. And it works; I have fewer food cravings, I can enjoy my meals, and have a healthy lifestyle that is flexible and not extreme. I believe this is key to sustainable results
