    Haha! Don’t worry, I know you were talking about your exercise bike, weren’t you?

    I love my low carb food, I’ve been doing this for 11 years but I love carbs more.

    Sounds pretty good to me so why do you think it could be stricter it sounds pretty strict already to me. If you are having good levels with what you are doing what would be the point of being stricter when you are doing so well already

    Possibly because HbA1 is back up to 47 mmol/m?

    Honestly? I like 5's. I'm just ok with low and mid 6's. I get grumpy above 6.7. I guess it's because I feel I'm giving up my previous life where I could enjoy bread, pasta, rice...

    Exactly. No point whatsoever. Agreed. It isn’t a penance or is it? :D

    While I'm prepared to accept a new life with diabetes and LCHF, my body/mind/palate still remembers the pleasure I had in cooking (professionally for 25 years) and eating the things I now need to avoid. Hard, but not impossible.

    I did think I wouldn’t like to be your partner! Being described as a ‘ride’. A timed ‘session’ every day to lower your BGL would make it feel like a ‘chore’ rather than a pleasure!

    Pleased to see it’s only an exercise bike you’re talking about

    But other more enjoyable exercise definitely helps my BGL!
