If you're worried about blood glucose levels, it's cheap enough to buy a glucometer and a pack of 50 strips. Test yourself before you eat, an hour after, and two hours after. Also test yourself right after you wake up and right before you... (more)

Everyone will work differently here, but think about what's happening on your rest days; your body is healing and building back up again, so it makes sense that you will want to eat a little more here. If you're sticking to good foods, I don't... (more)
