The Meal Score is calculated using real-time glucose data from your continuous glucose monitor (CGM). This score largely reflects the impact of a meal on your glucose response.
While a higher meal score generally reflects a favorable glucose response and healthier meal, this may not always be the case. For instance, you can eat a large plate of bacon and potentially get a high meal score due to low glucose fluctuation. For this reason, it is important to always step back and assess the overall composition of your meal. Consider simple questions, like is this meal balanced? Is this processed food or unprocessed food? Does this look like a healthy meal to me?
