    Just off the scale at Canadian lbs 209.6 i.e. that being 1hr after eating a filling mixed salad with mixed nuts.
    Let's post every 2 days and let's remember to sleep around 10 pm'ish. FreeStyle Lite just said 4.5 1hr pop (post prandial)

    update - lost 1 pound in the last 6 days despite that my big round birthday was 5 days ago. Yeah, I really lived it up over the last 7 days but i've snapped right back down and lost 1 lb, fewhh.

    I like the idea of max 100 gr carbs per day. I'm thinking now doing mainly I.F. 16/8, gym exercising and making sure i nourish enough not to eat after 7pm, and
    If i get hungry after 7pm I’ll either do protein or fat.
    My favo protein is sea-salted firm non-GMO tofu
    and my favo fat is avocado or cheese mmmmhh yummy.

    but I need to aware the DRINK not eat liquids with micro-nutrients

    Yesterday,
    while i was still in 'birthday-splurging-mode'
    I ate 2 lbs of frozen blueberries spread out over the day
    and that's y i could get away with very little food today.

    All i had today in terms of solids was : 1 large kale branch - very tasty + block of firm tofu with seasalt

    It would appear that 100 mg Carbs /day + 10 pm sleep gets us a whole lot FASTER to a desirable A1c

    I made my own fermented rice wine from cooked rice and wheat enzyme. So Soymilk plus same type enzyme could be interesting. Thanks for the tip
