    Did exercise really a lot yesterday so my body has been so stressed out afterwards that I had a hard time being able to sleep woke up many times this night and tested my blood glucose at 4:00 just to see how it was affected ... a rather bad surprice as my number was 6.8 in the middle of the night :bag::arghh::confused::eek:, so seems my liver was freaking out and keeping my numbers very high in the middle of night

    I now eat mostly organic foods. My diet is 100% vegan whole food plant based so nothing processed or refined. I eat a lot or fruits.

    I start the day with a fruit and green leaves smoothie and snack on fruits until lunch time. I usually have a salad for lunch. It will be a large salad as I cannot work if I am hungry and I bulk up the salad with different things like mixed seeds or a dessicated coconut or some whole meal pasta or brown rice.

    Dinner would be a salad followed by anything I want as long as it is whole food plant based.

    I can rarely eat out and have to make all my meals as ready meals are usually not organic and are made of refined foods like oils and sugar. I had to learn new cooking techniques to be able to cook without the ****. Fortunately there are a lot of videos on YouTube.

    I can now make my own treats like chocolate made with cacao powder, nuts and dates.

    I follow a simple rule - fruits on an empty stomach so I have to wait at least 2 hours after I have eaten anything before i can have fruits and wait at least 1 hour after eating fruit before I can have anything else.

    A happy morning to everyone. Relieved that my fbs decided to come down to 5.4 this morning after a steady rise.

    I cannot explain the mystery and science behind this blood sugar rise. Exercise should lower it but in your case it did the opposite.

    6.3 at 5:00 am, must have been @bigjim19 huggis that did it.

    They are tricky to catch, I hear those anticlockwise running huggis are the worst. :D

    Probably cross bred with the **** Oozlum bird that flies around in ever decreasing circles backwards, and disappears up it's fundamental orifice.
