    Since joining this forum, I am finding some good info which really is helping me.
    This is what I have done today correct me please if I have done something wrong:

    I woke up around 7 am, then ate a piece of peach and a cup of tea with artificial sweetener. At 8 am I had a wholemeal toast (15g carb) with one tablespoon sized peanut butter.

    For my lunch, I had a full plate of normal rice (can be 200g) and curry, half an hour later I went for 15 miles of mountain bike riding. While riding after around 10 miles, I felt a bit tired, I then had a break with a banana and a piece of bread (20g carb). On my return to the home, I checked my glucose was 6.5.

    In the evening, I had a full plate of mixed vegetable with a piece of fish and a metformin.
    Please note, I did not take any metformin in the morning and I checked my blood glucose 3 times today and it never went above 7.0.

    What is do you think?

    If you never went above 7 all day, I would be very, very surprised after all those carbs. Are you testing before and 2 hours after meals?

    I am testing before and after. I have been moving whole day plus 15 miles mountain bike, really using my glucose.
