9. I've been doing low-carb since 2006

I actually used the meter to test foods, since my metabolic defect is that my sugar spikes well over 200 if I eat the wrong things. I found some supposedly safe low-GI foods weren't for me. And it was effortless, since there's nothing like 240 on the meter to say "don't eat that again." I lost 40 pounds in 3 months, and also lost a host of health problems including my ever more frequent attacks of gout. Used to have an attack every month or two, now haven't had one at all since well before 2010. I discovered all this when I was 42, and I just wish I'd had some idea sooner but I'm glad I at least salvaged what I could of my health before it was too late.
