Exactly, body composition should be the new measurement. I believe Dr.'s offices should include EI in physical exams. The scale doesn't factor for more lean mass than average. At the very least medical offices could switch to body analizing scales instead of the type that just measure weight.View Thread
How you feel can tell you about your sugar. High sugar will make you energetic/hyper most of the time (think about a kid after they ate a candy bar) & low sugar will cause fatigue and possibly brain fog. Unfortunately these signs are easier to spot with more extreme changes in your sugar. Aim to feel consistantly energetic and alert, but not so much that you can't focus. Whole natural foods are a great way to get there.View Thread
