    Thanks. I’ve book marked to view later.

    Sorry to hear about your migraines - I was a long term chronic sufferer, so can empathise. Happily one of the effects of LCHF has been their disappearance!

    @ianpspurs thank you for the video!

    You are most welcome. I recently saw a documentary about them, especially the making of Rumours. I often have that on play when I use static bike for long steady cardio and I bought the CD again. I played the original vinyl to destruction at Uni.

    Hi everybody, I have visual issues so be patient please. I have read quite a number of results which I find absolutely amazing. My BG this morning before getting up was 8.4 I have them tested by an assistant. My down fall is getting anything inside first thing. However, working hard to change all this.

    6.7 this morning and I did it after my shower - thought that just in the first hour after getting up was the thing.

    So just sometimes I need to get up at around 4 am to visit the lemon tree but then make a cup of tea and go back to bed till around 7 30 and I take a reading because in my mind I had just “got up”

    Should I take my reading before my botanical sojourn - that’s also before my shower

    Hope you all have a beaut day

    Kind regards peter

    I could not access the link. My views are based on numbers seen with moderate exercise and comfortable eating for the FBG. I haven't seen a 6 plus for ages after eating, and settle in early to mid 5's. As I eat a stack of nuts, I think these are what keep my HbA1c's higher than I expect. I notice when I have eggs, bacon, mushrooms and tomato (huge portions), I am around 4.8.
