    I see negligible benefit to using one unless you have a condition that causes blood glucose issues. Test strips are not inexpensive either.

    ^exactly^^... If you have no history of problems with blood sugar levels then i see no need. you could have a slight case of hypoglycemia. Other than that i would stray from sugars, and simple carbs. This will keep your levels moderated.
