    Don't like the look of 8.7 bg pre lunch......don't. know why it's so high either......perhaps the mandarin at breakfast? Or just the excitement of seeing some progress. Either way it means zero carbs for the rest of the day......luckily I have an eggs-excellent plan to go on the offensive with lunch of 4 egg omelette and rocket salad and something else from the oval office for dinner plus I have a few cold hard boiled eggs for snacking(paprika sprinkles).

    Don't try that trick with me body!!!!

    As sure as eggs is eggs......down to 7.5 pre-dinner........I'm having scrambled eggs,smoked salmon and asparagus plus a side of 6 chicken wings..........seemed a bit churlish not to eat something from a creature that lays those oval,albumin rich,luscious eggs!!!! Will then stick to tea/water till breakfast to ensure a 12 hour fast overnight.

    6.3 before bed........that's real egg power.....remember

    Fasting bg was 6.6
    Pre-lunch bg was a worrying 8.7 (note to self-: cut out mandarins)
    Eggs for lunch led to pre-dinner bbc 7.5
    Eggs for dinner plus eggy snacks through the day meant a bedtime bg of 6.3

    Good Morning! 6.9 at 0500.
    Still within range, but higher than of late due to paella last night.
