    hi Mbaker,
    thanks for your support
    if i had listened to my diabetic doctor and the two diabetic nurse i would not have tried the low carb combined with intermittent and fasting, what is scary is how many people may have been told the same thing and thought well they are the experts
    best wishes

    hi Ziggy
    Thanks that is very kind but you some wonderful numbers and you have kept yourself at that level . For me staying at this level for the long term plus bringing my numbers down a bit more and losing more weight are mine for the next year

    That's fantastic news, well done. I too have gone down this route and feel better than I have done in years. :)
