Freestyle Libre Glucose Monitor
In this video, the Bertonatti brothers explain the benefits of using a glucose monitor to bio hack you way into your desired weight without having to count calories! If you wish to watch the short informational video.

milligrams = (mg) / deciliter = (dL)
In conventional medicine, A blood sugar level of 120 mg/dL or lower is considered normal; 140 to 199 mg/dL indicates pre-diabetes, and 200 mg/dL or higher indicates diabetes. These sugar levels indicate a SUGAR burner, not a FAT burner, and we want to ensure you become a fat-burning machine. So, MHI’s standard for fat adaptation is that even after consuming a meal, your blood sugar levels should never go higher than 120 mg/dL – this is what we consider an optimized sugar level and the benchmark to become a fat burner. We will explain how and why below.
– If your glucose levels drop below 70mg/dl – do not be concerned about hypoglycemia b/c the device has a standard deviation of roughly 15-30%, which is also transient and dependent on your stress level. Plus, this is an excellent sign b/c it means you’re in the fat-adaptative stage (fat burning) instead of relying on sugar for energy and being afflicted by the ups and downs of sugar (glucose) side effects. Insulin spikes cause you to simultaneously be a “hangry” person – hungry and angry.
– For optimal fat-burning results – Strive to keep your glucose no higher than 120 mg/dl when consuming a meal and between 70-90 mg/dl when you are not fasting or not eating. 70-90 means you’re blasting through your fat as your primary energy fuel instead of glucose (sugar). You are also reprograming the system (subconscious) to become a fat energy-combusting machine rather than a sugar burner, which takes time, discipline, and training.
– If you eat and your sugar levels spike above 140 mg/dl, understand that you’re shifting from a fat combustion machine to fat storing one and, worst yet, you’re causing an inflammatory response and switching on all the lousy aging genes.
– Allowing your glucose to rise above 140mg/dl is aging you faster, breaking your body down, and strangling your brain cells b/c excess sugar causes excitotoxicity, aka “neuron death”. Scientific evidence shows that long-term insulin spikes cause damage to your organs, nerves, endothelial, endocrine system, and blood vessels, – leading to diabetes, osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, autoimmune disorders, mitochondrial dysfunction, Alzheimer’s, dementia, Parkinson’s, and cancer. Last, poor-quality sleep will cause higher glucose levels throughout the day, so pay attention to it.
– When you overeat or eat processed foods or simple carbohydrates, this energy needs to be stored somewhere, and guess where it is stored? In your fat cells and your liver! And that causes what’s known today as fatty liver disease.
– Eating when you are stressed – TURNS DOWN your hormone-sensitive lipase and cranks up the fat-storing effects while having a decrease in your insulin response. So when you have carbs, they get pulled into the wrong places and turn into FAT storage. Eating while you’re stressed increases your visceral fat, which then CRANKS UP cortisol, and the more cortisol, the more visceral fat (this is the fat between your organs)!
– Eating without being stressed TURNS UP your hormone-sensitive lipase and cranks up the fat-burning effects keeping your glucose levels stabilized and from toxic “fat-storing” spikes. So that you understand, glucose spikes are affected by the level of stress you may be experiencing, so keep in mind how you feel and your stress when you decide to sit down to eat.
FOLLOW THIS PROTOCOL FOR 6 TO 8 WEEKS – “ONCE-A-WEEK”
Steps You Must Provide Us With
1) Scan your glucose sensor upon wake-up time & send us your glucose reading, plus how well you slept b/c poor quality sleep affects glucose. Your morning reading is the most critical reading of all.
2) Scan your sensor before consuming a meal and mark down what you ate. Rescan your sensor 20 minutes after your meal, then 1 & 2-hour post-meal mark to see your glucose spike curve. If you forgot to scan yourself before the meal, use your morning fasting glucose level as your baseline reading.
3) To see “in real-time” your glucose journey, you can access your history via your login and check your glucose graph for spikes, but you must scan every 8 hours and log/write into your app what & when you ate a meal.

– It takes the device 12 hours to adjust appropriately to your body’s glucose levels. So during these 12 hours, the readings are misleading
– Scan every 8 hours, so there are no gaps in between readings
– The device has a 30% standard deviation, so you would need a finger pricking device to ensure accurate glucose levels. However, this is not necessary as this is just to explain how your body responds to sugar. Also, this deviation is affected by the level of stress you may be experiencing.
Each sensor last 14 days
Medical Assistance Team
Please provide our team with your full name, address, date of birth, and the phone number to your closest Walgreens or CVS – We do not need the pharmacy’s address
Once our team calls in the glucose sensor, you will receive an email and/or text to let you know when the glucose sensors will be ready for pick up.
The price of the monitors will depend on the pharmacy. The sensors generally cost between $25-$40 per sensor & each sensor last 14 days.
