    Only way I can do mine is old fashioned filling in written diary. It's a god send for me. Not the same on excel spreadsheet.

    if you want to do the intermittent fasting style with foods then the 8:16 meens you eat in the 8 hour window and the remaining 16 hours you dont eat at all:

    for instance like eating between 11 o´clock until 19 o´clock in the day having one two or three meals.. low carb meals that is.

    I imagine you to be heroically brave and far too refined to have sh.., more waste products which depart serenely. Do I have you confused with the other Janet - surely not?

    Thanks for your post. We had drain problems yesterday, so while waiting in for an emergency plumber I weakened for the cereal. I don’t usually have cows milk in the house but had bought a pint for Easter visitors. I should have thrown the milk away, ( I have now),as I don’t like cereal with soya milk which is what hubby uses. I have double cream in my coffee. Did have my bacon and eggs today, nice to be back on track.

    Must I eat something sour for dinner to get this fasting BG below 6 ? Or keep a scale on the dining table to measure the morcels of food? This diet control is becoming very tricky for me, and I am not a great eater!
