    7.5 pre lunch reading.......much more typical of my usual bg cycle during the day where it gradually rises then falls during overnight fast. The trick I need to try and master is to minimise the rises and maximise the fasting fall. ......so I had just 2 hard boiled eggs, a kiwi fruit and a cup of blackberries......a lot of coffee and 3 cigarettes in this time span is probably pushing my luck though.

    6.4 pre-dinner.........was expecting something around the 8.0 mark :)

    Lunch has a very spicy beef rendang, onion Bhaji's, and a thinly sliced omelette(to do the job of tagliatelle I guess?).....H hospital nutrition team has excelled itself today and I had a second small plate straight after ( to be honest you could put that into me intravenously and find no complaint.)

    Meant I had nothing else during this time period except 4 strawberries and plenty coffee;)

    9.0 for my first all reading.......what's that all about?

    Dinner of Lamb vindaloo,peas,small cup white rice,red lentil Dahl and the remaining 4 strawberries in my punnet for afters

    Got to be the white rice.....or too much coffee.

    Night-time fast began 1915hrs.......water only now until breakfast.

    I tend to agree.....thankfully as I can knock rice on the head far easier than coffee

    A surprising 5.1. Not retesting in case it was a mistake.

    Same here. Giving up rice, spuds, bread, cake etc is a walk in the park compared to trying to give up coffee - glad I don’t have to.
