5.0 this morning.
You might be getting 'Dawn Phenomenon' or liver dump, where your liver dumps glucose into your bloodstream because it thinks you don't have enough or to get you going first thing in the morning. It is normal and non-diabetics get it too.
If you have just started the Low Carb diet you might get it for a while until your liver uses up its' stored glucose.
You could try having a small protein snack like a few nuts or small piece of cheese before you go to bed, some people on here have found it can prevent the liver dump.
3.8 this morning - that's a first for me being under 4.0.
@Nicksu how are you feeling last time I was that low I felt awful mind you I was just out of hospital and ended up flat out on the bedroom floor, twice.
Hi @Keesha! I did eat more than usual as I had paid for 'full board' and wanted to get my money's worth! At home I only have one meal in the evening, and maybe a sandwich or snack around midday. But on holiday I was having breakfast, lunch including dessert, and dinner with wine, soup and dessert.
I did have a few pints of beer, but drank red wine with evening meal.
I did expect my fbgs to be higher and was pleasantly surprised to stay around my usual figures. But my weight has gone up by 3 lbs, and my visceral fat reading has gone up from 6-7 to 8. I'll have to work on reducing it again.
I spent most of my days just lying on a sun lounger reading and looking out on a beautiful bay surrounded by mountains. I did walk into and around the walled old town one afternoon, about 10 minutes walk away. And I walked along a coastal path about 2 miles to the next bay and back on another afternoon.
I was intending to walk to some Roman ruins including a small ampitheatre, but it was only open to 3pm and I couldn't get off my sunlounger to get there in time!
Felt okay for the most part - bit tired when I was doing my walk to work this morning - but gave myself a treat and actually had a teaspoon of sugar in my coffee. I was surprised it was so low this am since I was a bit naughty last night and had some French stick when I was at the parents (which I don't normally indulge in).
20/10 - Morning.
8.3 - today, not feeling so good?

56 this morning
After 3 days of very low carbing (for me) a 5.9 (chuffed)
A pleasing 5.7 ...! Especially as went out to dinner last night and had to have bread when I arrived as had mild hypo feeling small carb boosted made me feel better.
Nice one ... the St Omer effect has left the building
5.6 this AM
Don't worry @ellagy and @JanetMcDowell - psyllium husks (which give the bread it's purple colour) are used purely for fibre, as they have no other appreciable nutritional value, and the colour doesn't affect the bread. A little less psyllium will reduce the colour.
