  Mean pre-prandial BG (MBG) is the mean of 21 pre-prandial BG measurements reported in week diaries. This value is basic in alimentary pathology. The habitual availability and the habitual balance are responsible for (unwanted) feedback reflexes. Figures 1 and 2 [1-5] show experimental animals and humans in a warm environment in comparison with a cold environment. The two opposite environments provoke opposite energy availabilities. Warm environment is associated with a decrease in resting metabolic rate. Available energy is spared and the surplus of energy causes a decrease in nutrient absorption, xylose in this experiment. This current high energy availability and not the increase in body weight is effective. Balance is positive when it is associated with body energy accumulation and the accumulation may reveal by body weight increase. Meal by meal balance is thus positive when BG is high, even if it is constant before meals (insulin resistance). The constancy at high levels reveals a progressive increase in fat tissues.
