    Do you test after your OMAD?

    You HAVE lots of time before you! And that makes it the more important to get your bg as near normal as possible.

    Sometimes. Usually early 5's or late 4's.

    Sounds suspiciously low to me. I suggest you test just before your meal & then 1, 2, 3, maybe even also 4 hours after. I don't mean every day, but as an investigation. I used to get numbers like that at 2 hours, but when I tested at 3 or later I saw bigger rises.

    Bit of an old thread, but Personally, I'd never consult a doctor about diet or body building. They just lack knowledge on diet in general... let alone body building.
