    5.1 today (although 11:30 is stretching it for a morning reading, even for a Sunday)

    I got up at 5am with 4.2. After the 5.9 yesterday this was a bit of a surprise.

    Most times when I test in the mornings my reading is between 11 and 15 and no matter what I try to do to get it down nothing seems to work although I feel fine.

    5.2, eating tons of fibre with every meal and it helps a lot.

    Mine was 14 up from 9.3 the week before.
    Readings and weight seem to be all over the place at the moment.
    Struggling to get to grips with the diet.
