How do I tell the difference between a good carb and not-so-good carb?

Those carbohydrates.

We need them for energy, the fuel for our bodies to do their thing. But they also impact our weight control. With a CGM like Veri, you will better understand the KEY difference between simple or refined carbohydrates (poor quality) and complex or unrefined carbohydrates (high quality). So while a low carb diet might seem like common sense, many complex carbohydrates and healthy protein sources can help our bodies function optimally and may not generate significant glucose and insulin spikes. Confusing eh? Guess that’s why they’re called complex...

So these complex concepts of ‘glycemic load’ (how much a food will raise your blood sugar level) and ‘glycemic index' (a ranking of those foods) blew our minds too... Mainly because the body is a ridiculously brilliant bundle of cells and processes that we love trying to understand! And there’s such wild variation for every one of us, that without access to our glucose data, we can’t truly know what our diet choices are doing for us.  Which is what drove us to make the Veri Service as beautifully visual as possible, to give you new ways of seeing and experiencing your body.

Understand the good and maybe-not-so-good at a glance

The Veri App shows you your glucose trend line - something that’s simple and easy to understand. And it also brings together very complex glucose data to provide you with clear guideposts. Meal Cards give each meal a score, so you are quickly able to make highly impactful changes to your diet and lifestyle. Veri helps you discover what eating healthy means for you personally, because that is the best way to maintain a healthy weight, instead of following someone else’s opinion.

Curiosity satisfied. This is Veri.

We want everyone to be able to trust in their own internal resources and become their own guru, with a little support from the most impactful bio-wearable on this planet. Veri’s continuous measuring and visualisation of glucose levels is the most advanced tool we have today to increase our knowledge of our bodies and find our frequency. We come to understand in real-time how our personal metabolism is interfacing with our diet, nutrition and lifestyle. We'll find meals that drive our glucose far too high. We'll discover foods that are full of hidden sugars without any real nutritive value. We'll learn how positively impactful exercise is for our unique metabolism and glucose response. And for those amongst us who stay forever curious, Veri gives us the ability to actually bio-tune our bodies. We’re all done with one-size-fits-all.

Live and feel your very best.

Here at Veri, we want our Service to feel like the best personal nutritionist you've ever met, offering advice 24 hours a day, 7 days a week about everything you eat and do. It might be hard to believe that a little wearable Sensor and the Veri App can be that, but we’re confident that continuous glucose monitoring can help you discover real healthy eating as it relates to your unique metabolism, and create a lifestyle that keeps it all in balance.
