So, I've been tracking my blood sugar lately to add info to the data my awesome Functional Medicine doctor has been compiling. I'm recording waking/fasted, and then 2-hour post-prandial (meal) for my 3 main meals.
Anyhow, it's sort of caused me to geek out a bit and I'm freeing my inner Tim Ferriss...
Been playing around with the effect of PWO nutrition options. Two in particular -- whey with sweet potato baby food or whey with unsweetened apple sauce. Both yield around 25 grams of protein and 24-30 grams of carbohydrate.
