Welcome to Highfalutin” Low Carb! The
weekly web series where we find and test
the best low carb recipes. (static) Hey, guys
good morning.
I bet I look amazing it’s early on
Monday morning don’t get worried
nothing’s gone wrong with the other show
it’ll be back I just wanted to try
something a little bit different I’ve
wondered how very sleepy I’ve often
wondered how sweeteners artificial
sweeteners real sweeteners affect my
blood sugar so I’ve devised a little
plan wherein every morning I’m going to
get up and have a couple of cups of
coffee just like I normally do and each
morning I’m going to put in a different
sugar or sugar substitute and then I’m
going to use my handy-dandy
yeah nothing to test my blood sugar and
see how this goes so I can definitively
know if erythritol does or does not
spike my blood sugar or monk fruit or
equal or sweet and low whatever they may
be it’s a little unnerving knowing that
I’m going to start out my days for the
next few days at least with something
that could possibly spike my blood sugar
but this is in the name of science so
I’m kind of quietly speaking because the
house is still asleep it’s very early
here as you can tell so um anyway I’m
going to test my blood sugar this
morning before I have any coffee and
then today I’m not using any sweetener
just do it like I normally do with heavy
whipping cream just a tablespoon of that
so will will test that to get a baseline
of what my blood sugar does in the
morning and we’ll go from there
all right guys whew it’s amazing how
terrible I look at a green light at 5:45
in the morning all right I’ll meet you
back here every morning it’s a date bye
guys
hey guys we’re back this morning blood
sugar rose a little yesterday from like
80 to 100 within the hour of getting up
didn’t have any sugar in the coffee did
have two tablespoons of whipping cream
so we’re going to do some black coffee
one day this week as well just to test
that today is going to be a risk for
tall so let me get a quick blood
pressure me blood pressure blood sugar
reading for this morning because I need
some coffee. Yeah, I’m sleepy. It’s odd letting
people see your bed-head and morning
sleepy time face. All of these things
are so fiddly and sharp that’s a lot to
deal with in the morning, to be honest with
you if you’re diabetic this isn’t fun I
guess I’m not diabetic I just happen to
have one of these that I wanted to test
sugar with just for dietary reasons so
hate that thing alright let’s see what
it is 96 this morning anyway I’m gonna
bring some coffee bye guys
okay good morning we’re back again very
sleepy this morning I ran out of test
strips yesterday so I had to I had to
take a hiatus for one day but we’re
going to resume today and paint these
things are expensive like 25 but 29
bucks for 25 of these that’s cuckoo
because I don’t really need them for
medical reasons obviously munch does it
cover them so let’s do this again today
what are we going to have today Oh today
is going to be Splenda which I’m scared
of and I don’t really like but all in
the name of science guys all in the name
of science Oh Lord are you seeing Jesus
Christ okay okay let’s do this one
anybody is going to hurt it’ll YG’s
he’ll 102
all right time for coffee
good morning guys it’s the weekend I’m
trying to be quiet we’ve actually got
some family in the house today we had a
family reunion I did pretty well I was
actually kind of scared about that
because as you can imagine a family
reunion in the south involves tons of
food but I did well anyway today I think
I’m going to test a monk fruit the NuNaturals
brand monk fruit a very dear
friend of mine from college hi Elin we
were chatting on Facebook and she told
me the wonderful things about monk fruit
and I told her I was skeptical of it
because I’ve heard so much about the “In
The Raw” brand which obviously is mixed
with dextrose and maltodextrin and I
said I was scared of what’s going to
spike me and she told me of the new
naturals brands which is supposedly only
monk fruit in fact it comes in like a
salt shaker situation where you shake it
on your food because you have to use so
little of it I think it says something
like 1/64 of a teaspoon is equivalent to
two teaspoons of sugar so this stuff is
crazy strong so I’m going to try that
today and see how it goes I’m filming
I’ll do just want me I guess I need to
go
hey guys guess what it’s Monday morning
again. Booo. I had a wonderful weekend I’ve
had family in town for a big family
reunion anyway I think today I’m going
to do one of the sweeteners that I
avoided last week and I don’t really
want to do and that’s odd to say but
it’s sugar I’m just curious what it does
but it’s frustrating to know that you
know everybody wants to start a diet on
a Monday morning and here I will be um
basically sabotaging that in some way
all in the name of this whatever this
project is them I’m trying to find out
all I mean let the dog out and oh come
on if you I’m trying to keep it about a
two teaspoon equivalent for all of these
sweeteners per cup of coffee and I’m
having two cups of coffee
my 7:30 but I’m only putting three yep
tell my gluttony I actually have three
but I’m only putting sweeteners in the
first two which I’d am pretty quickly to
try to get the sugar into me and capping
so anyway I’m rambling this morning
let’s take our sugar here and see what
it is this Monday morning here we go. Ow!
Surprises you every time! okay I’ve just
sat down out here and with my first cup
of coffee of the morning and I really
wanted to make a big deal of it and say
oh yeah sugar tastes terrible home I’m
so good now I don’t even like sugar that
would be a big lie to you and to me it
tastes like magic so I want to sit out
here and enjoy it and hope to god it
doesn’t screw me up for the rest of the
day and cause me to crepe everything
under the Sun I don’t need that on a
Monday we got to talk
I used to don’t do a video update after
I drink my coffee I just take a photo of
my blood sugar I don’t know if you can
see that if you focus on that because
it’s only 1:45 an hour out now
less than an hour and my sugar has gone
from 100 to 145 so wowzers I’m not
looking forward to the rest of the day
because of that either
anyway I just wanted to let you know
that sucks
bye good morning here we are again is
wicked early this morning I’ve been
putting off testing the pink and blue
stuff the sweet and low and the equal
because I hate to them so no matter what
it says with my blood sugar I will never
use them just because they’re taste
terrible and make me feel terrible so
but I want to do it in the name of science
here so let’s see what we’ve got
oops
oh damn my machine is in the kitchen
charging I’ll be back hold on okay now
that is spitting so again these things
are fiddly yeah still bleeding you smash
on them and that’s the dirty when old
when Jesus is too early to cow literally
bitch laughing you’re in majare God come
be calculated by the time he gets here
come on tar out Aloha 102 I mean I guess
that’s I don’t really know we know some
days it’s been 80 in the morning and
some days it’s been a hundred so alright
I’m gonna go drink some coffee I think
I’ll do the blue stuff today the equal
so beat you in the morning okay what 100
again how much right on so um today
we’re going to try a product that I
really like and I have some suspicions
that it probably does spike my blood
sugar I’m not sure. Yikes, my shirt’s
coming off. Fiber Syrup. Let’s try to get it in
the light can you say that Fiber Syrup
Gold this stuff is from Denmark and it
claims to have per two tablespoons
thirty total carbohydrates twenty-eight
of which are fiber and two of which are
sugars we’re going to see if that’s true
this stuff is delicious that’s the hope
it doesn’t spike me because I love this
stuff as you see the bottle is almost
all gone
it tastes like pancake syrup and I
joking is good so say no prayer for me
that this doesn’t spike my blood sugar
because it’s so good so I don’t know how
to sell we go in coffee I probably
wouldn’t put pancake syrup in my coffee
but just for the purposes of this making
everything equal in this test working
out them I’m going to use it as coffee
sweetener for today I’m following the
same exact rules using the same average
quantities of two teaspoons per cup
alright so I’m going to record this
we’ll make a coffee and let’s do this
again oh my god I cannot use fiber syrup
ever ever again this magic stuff that I
was talking about how fantastic it was
there’s a reason that it’s so fantastic
a hundred and eighty-nine one serving
size is two tablespoons of this I used
four teaspoons two teaspoons in each cup
of coffee that I had in the first two
cups of coffee and my usual creamer I
usually have a blood sugar rise of 10 or
15 points and that’s probably from the
creamer we’re going to test that later
in the week I’m gonna have to coffee
without the cream probably tomorrow
y’all 90 point 89 points my blood sugar
shot up that was more than the sugar
I used pure sugar 4 teaspoons of pure
sugar and my blood sugar only went up to
UM 147 it is at 189 gosh Sukrin Fiber
Syrup Gold can’t do it any more sugar
booger
Gonna have to throw you in the garbage
damn stuff is good no it’s pure sugar
good morning guys um I do believe this
is the last day of this little project
we’ve been doing here together it’s
almost been to two weeks I think I don’t
know exactly how many 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
10 11 so it’s been 11 days Bakcell days
there were a couple of days missed in
there so we’ve hit and touched on most
all of the major sweeteners so I believe
I got them all so today is the last day
I’m going to do coffee with no cream
today just black coffee the same brand
of coffee I’ve been using all week and
well they’re from there just to see how
much the creamer actually has been
affecting my sugars and then I’m going
to compile all of this today or tomorrow
I just want to reiterate and I’m
probably going to say this in a better
way but later when awake I’m not a
doctor I am NOT diabetic I have not been
trained on how to do any of this this is
just a project for me a project for me
to tell myself how these things have
affected me and I had one little shock
there as you know with that secret fiber
gold what a disappointment and had I not
done this how many days weeks months
years what I have gone pouring that
stuff on man just but yeah this is like
our hmmm yeah it’s not affecting me a
bit and meanwhile my blood sugar stood
roof so channel way back to normal next
