MandiJ: I used to have poor sugar metabolism too. My fasting glucose was in the 110-120 range and I would spike to the 200’s after eating a carby meal. Now I’m consistently in the 80-90s and don’t spike above 120 unless I really stuff myself.
What fixed it for me was the potato hack – eating nothing but potatoes for a few days. I know it sounds like an insane thing to do when you have blood sugar problems but for whatever reason it works. There will be some big spikes initially but they will settle down very quickly. There are a lot of anecdotes about it on the ‘net as well if you want to look it up.
