Use a CGM to track

There seem to be thousands of quick fixes for weight loss these days. But as anyone with weight management goals knows, losing weight is often a more complex, challenging journey.

Continuous glucose monitors (CGMs), which help you observe and understand more about fluctuations in your glucose levels, can offer insight and support for your weight loss efforts.

Pairing the data from CGMs with personalized human expertise from professional nutritionists, like the plans at Nutrisense do, can be invaluable on your journey to meeting your weight loss goals.

When you think of weight loss, you may typically think of:

  • Making drastic short-term diet and exercise changes
  • Tracking calories
  • Constantly measuring bodies against the BMI index

The bad news?

These tactics don’t work long-term—they don’t allow you to appreciate the fullness of factors impacting metabolic health and weight, including how fluctuations in glucose (your body's primary energy source) affect your body. 

Did you know…

  • Poorly regulated glucose levels may be connected to a higher likelihood of weight gain in some people.
  • Having more information about your glucose response may help guide you toward lifestyle choices that support weight loss goals.

A CGM can help alert you to diet and lifestyle habits that may impact glucose trends. When it comes to weight loss, exercise and dieting may not always lead to the results you want.

The following factors can all affect your ability to lose weight:

  • Your genetics
  • Certain medications
  • Sleep hygiene
  • Certain underlying conditions

When you sign up with Nutrisense, you get access to an expert, credentialed nutritionist who can walk you through the data so you can make the best decisions for your unique body and weight loss needs.

“Using a continuous glucose monitor for weight loss keeps you accountable. This accountability is key to how valuable the CGM data can be for weight loss.”

With traditional weight loss strategies, the number on the scale ended up being the lagging indicator to Benjamin that something needed improvement. But that changed when he joined Nutrisense.

Blood Sugar Tracking

for Weight Management

Continuous glucose monitoring has been around for decades, but it is only recently being utilized more to support weight management.

So, what's the advantage of viewing your blood sugar levels when you're trying to lose weight? Heather Davis, MS, RDN, LDN explains:

  • Your body converts some of the food you eat into glucose and uses it for energy.
  • When glucose enters the bloodstream, a hormone called insulin is released to help absorb glucose and transport it to where it’s needed in the body.
  • But when too much glucose is in your bloodstream, insulin may signal the body to store the extra glucose as fat. Other metabolic changes may also take place that may work against your weight and health goals.
  • The CGM lets you view your glucose response to your dietary and lifestyle habits in real time.

Unlike other weight loss methods, using a CGM gives you the benefit of seeing how glucose levels may impact weight loss progress. Since everyone's journey is unique, this data can help personalize your goals.

A CGM as a Helpful Way
to Support your Journey

One of the benefits of using this device during a weight loss journey, is the real-time view you get of your body's data.

By highlighting how various dietary and lifestyle factors affect your body, a CGM arms you with the knowledge to make lasting lifestyle changes, regardless of your wellness goals.

What if weight loss isn’t a priority for you? A CGM can still be a helpful way to support your journey towards various wellness goals, including body recomposition, finding the perfect activity, and maintaining a healthy weight.

The CGM Diet

While there's no such thing as a specific CGM diet, continuous glucose monitoring can help you modify dietary habits to reach wellness and weight loss goals.

With real-time data from a continuous glucose monitor, you can learn what foods lead to glucose swings. This in turn, will help you optimize your diet to understand more about how glycemic control can support a healthy lifestyle.

With this knowledge, you can see what diets best suit your specific body to support various wellness goals, including weight loss.
