    Feeling particularly tired this morning- 2 cups of coffee and a square of 90% cocoa have had no impact- at work now- any tips other than having a nap!

    You need to have slow release carbs as opposed to a quick chocolate fix, try some breakfast biscuits which should help until lunchtime.

    Trying to stick to LCHF routine so opted for some gluten free Oatcakes- 4.8g Carb per biscuit- was like eating cardboard- will make sure I have a lump of cheese tomorrow to enhance the experience!
    Love Porridge- not an option in work or nearby so may look at some packs at supermarket tonight for back up

    I never seem to get mine below 8 - and I have been low carbing for months which caused me to GAIN weight! I have now gone onto a diet akin to the old slimming world red days (2 small portions of carb a day) with no appreciable affect on my blood glucose! I would LOVE to have got my fasting blood down to the 5s or even the 6s but it didn't happen. And before anyone comments - yes I did stick to it - I followed the Atkins Induction diet.

    I was 6.9 this morning, which is quite a surprise because of the stress I'm under. My mum's still ill in hospital and the Office Manager where I'm working is being less than supportive. I'm doing a 1 week work trial and she's making me feel like a naughty schoolgirl grrr
