Yes, definitely a better proxy...if you can afford it.
If you can't afford the expensive ketone blood test strips, understanding
how insulin production and build up in the system despite little to no bg
spikes is not so easily accomplished in my world. The doc says insulin
levels are an unnecessary lab expense for their usefulness though he's
fully on board with keto.
I'm working on using the insulinogenic formula in Marty's blogs but not
sure what to do with the resulting numbers from the computations. Like if
the formula applied to tuna salad is a "25", so what? I can't seem to find
where to go from there and have not asked him direct yet. BUSY BUSY
BUSY...but slow is GO!!
