    Hi peony, i have found that its not just what we eat but the timing and amounts, so now i portion control and my bs's speak for themselves.

    Thanks Clive. At the moment I have so much 'stuff' swirling around my brain, such as high fat, low fat, how much protein is too much etc. I have not been weighing my food out but I will start to so that I can work out percentages of fat, protein, carbs etc consumed. I have not shifted an ounce in weight since starting so something needs adjusting.

    I think it was you who mentioned Jenny Ruhl's book? If so, I bought both blood sugar 101 and diet 101 and I am finding them very informative. Thank you.

    Readings for today

    Waking 7.3
    Dinner 6.8/8.2
    Bedtime 8.2

    Decided to not test as much, just 4 readings, namely as getting through the strips so fast. Also, I am thinking long and hard on the diet I wish to follow as my digestion is struggling at the moment, i used to be a vegan, and I am considering going back to this way of eating but not sure yet how I will structure it. A lot of planning ahead, Looking forward to a simple bowl of cabbage tomorrow for my lunch, something nice and light to digest!

    This is a much better reading. How are you feeling now? Did your podiatrist visit go well the other day?
