Blood sugar reading before eating: 79
This reading of 79 was about three hours after eating a can of Hormel Chili. During that time, I took my dog Terry out for a walk.
Blood sugar reading after eating: 118
This reading was about an hour after I finished eating.
The post-meal blood sugar increase here is pretty small! Predictably, this increase of 79 → 118 is similar to the modest increase after eating spicy Korean pork, which was 108 → 131 the last time I had it.
My meal of Korean pork belly and vegetables was pretty much the same stuff as the spicy Korean pork. Both are just pork and vegetables. I bought about 1 lb. (~500g) of pork belly, and I ate about 400g of it.
This pork belly is called “sahm-gyeop-sahl” (삼겹살) in Korean.
Before you make Korean pork belly a regular part of your diet, you should probably do your own before-and-after blood sugar tests.
