While chatting at Government Day last month, my friend Barbara mentioned she uses Clif Shot Bloks during her workouts. Although she doesn’t have T1, I believe she said she’s hypoglycemic and I know she enjoys doing long, intense workouts. She mentioned that these Bloks are great for fueling her through her routine and that each individual Blok has 8 grams of carbs. She suggested they might work for me too, so when I saw them at Whole Foods I decided to give them a try.
Yesterday as I left for the gym I tested at 147. I was nervous after a pretty bad low at the gym over the weekend, so I ate one Shot Blok. Post workout number? 107!! WIN!
Thanks for the great tip, Barbara!
