    I have to do a fasting test tomorrow between noon & 6pm. What's a good breakfast that will set me up for this. I can take in a green salad and hard cheese for lunch but that's it. Any help gratefully received

    For once I would agree with @jcbman If it's meant to be a fasted test then you surely shouldn't have anything apart from water.
    What's it for?

    I agree with this.

    I agree with this as well.

    Certainly is, all of my fasting tests have been from the last meal in the evening for at least twelve hour minimum.

    I was a bit quick off the mark here. I have just remembered when I had my cataracts done I was told not to have anything to eat after 10:00 am for the surgery in the afternoon.

    Talking blood, not surgery
    I reckon you were spot on.
