More info on the 7-day carb test (#wiredtoeat)

Did you read Melissa's recap of her 7-day carb test? She really set the bar high for a post test follow-up blog post (which I ask for in return for borrowing our glucometer). This is a great test for you to figure out how special of a snowflake you are. If nothing else, the potential that you might be allowed to eat donuts should be a reason for you do to this test.

Add your name to the board in the back of the gym to get in the glucometer queue. It's good for you, and it's good for the gym to get all of these personal accounts.

Since the book is still out on loan, I'm including the relevant section of the book below so that you can use it as a reference for doing the test - or read it to see if you really want to do the test (hint: it requires poking yourself in the finger for a week). I'm hoping that this will be considered fair use and I won't hear from any lawyers. I figure that since I own a copy for the gym, and it's so popular that I can't guarantee it's availability, everyone will look the other way. (But, seriously, if you lawyer-y folks don't want this, just send me a friendly email, and I'll take it down. Don't send a nasty cease and desist letter).
