    Sorry to hear that... hope the changes help... i am slowly embracing low carb eating though it is a wee bit difficult given my vegetarian Indian upbringing... but am making changes and it is helping. The challenging part is really replacing the carbs... going overboard with fat just doesn’t feel easy and animal protein is relatively new in my life.... managing somehow and it is helping... hope you find what works for you ... all the very best

    A nasty 9.2 at 7am ( own fault should have left those bread rolls alone ) then 3 hrs later ( no food ) it was down a more respectable 7.4.

    YOU CAN DO THIS!

    Heck that goes for all of you here, not been in here for a while but wanted to pop in to cheer you all on. Ended up with a 5.3 today, the stress of this week hitting along with a questionable meal timing yesterday but hey ho.
