In a world where everyone's hunting for the next best health hack, influencers are selling us shiny new gadgets left and right. Continuous glucose monitors, glucose tracking devices, test strips - you name it, they've got it. And why wouldn't they? These devices bring them massive financial gains. But let's pause for a moment and ask ourselves, "Is this really what we need?"
Imagine if we swapped out these devices for a moment with the world of cars. Think of your body as a car and the food you eat as fuel. These devices are like tracking the emissions your car produces without ever looking at the quality or type of fuel you put into your car. The downstream effects, like emission spikes, are directly affected by the fuel used, but that's not the whole story. The car's performance isn't just about emissions; it's about the engine's design, the quality of fuel, and many other factors.
The same applies to our bodies. Glucose spikes are just the body's response to fast-digesting carbs entering our system, like high emissions from using low-quality fuel. But these spikes don't predict whether we'll feel full or hungry afterward. Just like tracking car emissions doesn't tell us if the engine is performing efficiently. These devices give the illusion of progress and control but miss the big picture: our overall health relies heavily on our energy intake - the food we eat.
Think about your food as a beautiful, complex city. Poorly structured foods, like sugary drinks or foods made from finely ground carbs, are like cities built quickly with flimsy materials. They might look okay, but once a storm (digestion) hits, they collapse quickly, causing glucose to flood into your bloodstream.
On the other hand, foods with complex structures, like whole grains or lean proteins, are like cities built carefully with robust materials. They stand up against the storm, slowly releasing sugars, amino acids, and fatty acids into the bloodstream. They're built to last, offering a steady supply of energy and keeping you feeling full longer.
Unfortunately, the obsession with glucose tracking devices is like worrying about the weather in our city analogy. Sure, storms (glucose spikes) can be disruptive, but it's the city's structure (food structure) that determines how well it holds up. Focusing too much on glucose responses can also lead to missing out on the valuable benefits offered by a wide range of foods.
