Beginner‘s Guide to Continuous Glucose Monitors (CGMs) | Molly Downey @ NutriSense
Play • 1 hr 4 min

For years, I had wanted to test out CGM technology to better understand how my unique body responds to specific foods, drinks, and lifestyle habits. What if your daily "health" habits are actually setting you back?

Blood glucose is one powerful metric that can help you make optimal decisions. The problem? Back then, I got quoted $1,500 for a 90-day experiment. I passed. The cost has dropped significantly. I jumped at the chance to test the top CGM services at the beginning of 2021, and walked away with surprising findings.

So I had to get a member of their team on the show to talk about this futuristic technology.

Thank you to our sponsors Key takeaways
  • CGMs can help us discover which unintuitive foods work (and don't work) for our unique biochemistry
  • Get the most out of your experience by knowing how to interpret the numbers
  • Optimizing mental and physical performance by controlling blood sugar
  • Reducing stress, a post-meal walk, exercise, dihydroberberine, and apple cider vinegar are powerful ways to (partially) offset the damage caused by a sweet indulgence.
