    Well done of getting to grips with things and monitoring closely. If you don't already, please do note what you re actually eating at any time, as well as the nutrient make up. Annoyingly, not all carbs are the same, and some find they can eat fruit, but not grains, or whatever, so merealy recording xgr carb isn't the full picture.

    Including the detail really is useful when you look back in a few weeks time, and want ti compare reactions to foodstuffs.

    Well done though - great start!

    Sounds to me you're going about this in the right way, questions and testing is good. Get the hang of it and it will sort of self perpetuate itself, weight loss and control of BG.
    Don't worry about having to drop carbs completely, you don't want to give your system too much of a shock, some folks report feeling like c**p when they do.
    Wish you well.
