Why should I test my glucose?

Updated 1 week ago by Erika

Since blood sugar changes far more rapidly than ketones, testing your glucose before and after meals is a good way to identify any food triggers you may have. For example, some people see a spike in glucose when using artificial sweeteners, while others don't. Knowing if an artificial sweetener, almond flour, or some other "substitute" ingredient is causing glucose to spike is important since glucose spikes can sabotage your keto scores.
