    good morning everyone :) sunshine here, forgot the red wine; anyways numbers much better today

    5.4 really not because number of carbs were lower than two days ago...but proteins were a little higher, can´t really find the logic in all those fluctuations

    Yesterday NO exercise, ate 2272 calories of which 166 gr carbs and 148 gr proteins, did drink ginseng as well..
    maybe you are right in the ratio between carbs and proteins "ickihun" :)

    After intermittent fasting at the weekend this morning it was 5.0, down from 7.6 last Saturday morning. This is the lowest reading ever in the last 5 months since I got my Accu-Chek Mobile blood glucose meter. :)

    4.9 this morning - not quite sure how that happened! So to compensate I had some greek yoghurt and a couple of walnuts with my breakfast.
