    Cacao-courgette porridge and then some mixed nuts for breakfast, because I was so hungry :angelic:

    For lunch I had some homemade Thai veggie curry with courgette ribbons. I feel really full and my post-meal BC is 5.5 :D

    Tonight I'll have an early dinner with the same curry and a bit of rice, before heading to the gym :cool:

    Hi Ray2. I have also found that lager brings DOWN blood sugar levels over night but have been told that BSL go up first before coming down! (Have yet to prove that to myself.) Type 2 for 5 years.

    I am just starting to test and had problems with my new meter this morning.
    Eventually got a reading of 8.8 but I think some of that was stress.
    Just tested again before eating and was 6.4
    Now eating porridge with semi skimmed milk and a small amount of Splenda to sweeten.

    One navel orange at lunchtime. After that my BS reading was 7.7.
    I am trying to keep carbs intake very low.

    My reading was 5.1 before eating tonight.

    Well I have been naughty and had some fish and half a dozen chips.
    Just starting to test, so it was in the interests of science of course!:rolleyes:
