    I’m trying something new today. I’m not eating. I hope while at work. And will have one carb free meal for dinner.
    Just to see how that affects my levels tomorrow. Obviously plenty of water throughout the day x

    I am pleasantly surprised with consistently below 6.0 numbers. Last night I had Ceaser salad without the croutons....
