    Today I had for breakfast: bullet proof coffee/skinny syrup/Walden's farms coffee creamer (all low carb), 2 slices Keto bread toasted/butter/little dab of low carb marmalade and one egg, between 8:30 and 9:00.

    For lunch, around 12:30 or so, a small amount of homemade yogurt, a few almonds sprinkled over and one Keto peanut butter ball. My blood two hours later was 10.1. WHAT?

    Would eating too soon after breakfast be the reason? It's depressing when this happens because I don't want my A1C to go up in March. I've had a lot of stress since mid-December, but I'm not eating anything that is not low-carb. What am I doing wrong? I haven't been able to get out for our normal walks because our weather is extremely cold and there's lot of ice. Lack of exercise may not be helping much. Any thoughts or tips are welcome.
