    7.3 this morning.
    I am going to try to shift my eating window, and have food in the morning soon after waking, then finish eating for the day late afternoon.

    These fasting levels are getting to be tedious. The only other change in recent weeks is that I haven’t been well enough to get to my usual swimming pool and gym sessions. Will start a gradual return, even though it seems unwise to change more than one variable at a time as it makes it impossible to be able to determine the effects. I need to see better results.

    6.3 last night and 6.8 this morning. Not great but not unhappy. Dinner was salad and a small salmon and.... two glasses of a Chilean Sauvignon Blanc

    4.3 today.
    But I did get up and run for 50 minutes at 2 am. Is this cheating? Or should I start a 2 am FB running group? But I feel amazing. Clear-headed, sunny skies (well not outside I've just returned from a dog walk and it was bucketing down and I didn't care a hoot). Anyway, I'm walking on air.
