    I'm so pleased with myself - I've had my lowest reading so far of 6.3 this evening and previously my lowest reading have been 6.8 and 6.9 which were my first tests of the day (first thing in the morning before eating anything). My 6.3 was after a day of eating :) I feel like things are starting to work!!

    Today I have eaten:

    BREAKFAST: 1 slice bacon, 1 egg, small amount of spring onion, 1 inch cube of cheese, 1 medium mushroom, 1 cherry tomato and a cup of tea

    LUNCH: 2 x 1" cubes of cheese, 1 med apple, 10 almonds, handful of raw spinach
    (note to self: this took blood to 7.7 so avoid eating too many apples which are high in carbs)

    TEA: 1 x ready made slimfast drink/food replacement of 200 cals

    A mug of organic cocoa unsweetened and made with organic milk for breakfast. Pst breakfast reading 7.7! After the reading, two organic oatcakes with seeds plus a teaspoonful of peanut butter. Lunch is a bit late but probably a scrambled egg made with olive oil and no added salt!
