To demonstrate the base changes certain foods have on blood glucose level for a single individual while categorizing the foods, as it is suggested that the blood glucose response helps dictate a person’s weight gain, but that is for another study.


This study tests the blood glucose response of certain foods in a single individual (for control). Refined carbohydrates seem to produce the highest level of blood glucose response, these include but are not limited to: white bread; wholegrain bread; potatoes; sugar. The highest changes were seen with sugar (raising an average of 53 points, as opposed to 5 points which a carrot causes) and breads.

Methods usedtop

Standard measurements with a +/-5 accuracy blood meter, obtained 3 times per reading (three separate fingers) and averaged. For three readings taken immediately after 8 hours of sleep, second reading taken at 15 minutes after eating, third reading taken 1 hour after eating.
