After I moved to Paris I was getting a bit worried about the dietary changes that came with the move (eating all the baguettes with cheese that became my staple food, along with all the pastries). Triggered by this I got myself some freestyle libre glucose sensors, as those seemed to be an easy way to collect some data.
In total I’ve gone through 3 sensors so far (6 weeks of data). In addition to 4 weeks of my typical Parisian diet I also have 2 weeks of a changed diet (mainly consisting of ice cream, pastries overflowing with dulce de leche and small amounts of llama meat ).
While this makes an interesting natural experiment (for which I haven’t analyzed any data yet), I think I’d be interested in making more planned changes to my diet and see whether I can observe any effects. Michael said that he’d in principle would be interested in doing some self-experiments around blood glucose levels as well, so this could be a fun n=2 experiment opportunity.
Has anyone seen anyone else doing similar things in the past? Could be interesting to try similar approaches to have further references to compare to!
