    These were the ‘sour’ version, which was why I ‘had’ to indulge. Best solution would be not to buy them in the first place

    4.8 :cat: It seems the combination of IF and low calorie (900 - 1000 per day) is a good combination for me. And thank the lord for bulletproof coffee!

    7.9 this morning. was diagnosed with type 2 in august 2018 with a1c of 93 went on 800 Calorie diet for two months losing 12kgs and got a1c down to 43 by October 3 with intermittent metformin use then stopped metformin and had Jan 2019 a1c reading of 34 and told in remission. Wondered what signs people get that they are falling out of remission my morning bloods have always been slightly higher around 7-8 then two hours after eating 6.6 to 6.9 recently though have been lower below 6 a month or so ago. Any advice appreciated!!

    Welcome to the forum @BPBP. Morning (fasting) blood glucose levels are often higher due to 'Dawn Phenomenon' where our livers dump stored glucose into our blood stream to get us going for the day.

    Thank you - Prem51! I wonder if you have any advice on staying in remission and warning signs you may be falling out of remission?
