I’m a big fan of blood sugar testing and this summer I spent a month using a continuous glucose monitor (CGM) from a great company called Nutrisense. It actually changed my life. The CGM let me accurately see what’s going on 24/7 and it was a major step up from the traditional finger-prick method.
Today I’m sharing my experience with using the CGM and the co-founder of Nutrisense, Kara Collier, is here to share everything we need to know about our blood sugar.
Kara Collier is a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and Certified Nutrition Support Clinician with a background in clinical nutrition, nutrition technology, and entrepreneurship. After becoming frustrated with the traditional healthcare system, she helped start the company NutriSense where she is now the Director of Nutrition. Kara is the leading authority on the use of CGM technology, particularly in non-diabetics for the purposes of health optimization, disease prevention, and reversing metabolic dysfunction.
Kara delivers some incredibly useful information on everything from how the stages of our menstrual cycle impact our blood sugar, to how CGMs work, what you should be aiming for in your blood sugar levels, and so much more!

I’m so excited because Agni has just launched a complete women’s health box for healthy hormones and better periods. What I really like about Agni is that they work with a Medical Advisory Board and top chefs to make their products, so if you’ve ever wished your supplements tasted delicious, you’ll really love their new box. The Complete Women’s Health Box has five awesome products in it – my personal favorite is the double chocolate chip cookies. They’re the kind of cookies that make you want to eat the whole box in one sitting. I also really love the seasonings which make seed cycling super easy, plus they turn your avocado toast into otherworldly goodness. Everything in the box is gluten-free, dairy-free, and totally delicious.
