    Ian +/= 15% is the accepted figure I believe but how much latitude that gives you and if that tolerance applies to the Libra only the lord alone knows because I certainly don't, sorry if that's not much help but we are surrounded by uncertainties.

    BG of 5.4 this morning. Considering what I had to eat last night 5.4 is highly respectable. LOL

    Cholesterol control is all about what you eat fat wise. That said a bit of help with simvastatin/atorvastatin/rosuvastatin and increased exercise will soon bring it under control.

    6.5 today... looks like my body is following a pattern... FBG after the fasting day falls in 4s and FBG following the non-fasting falls in 6s...

    I did experiment a bit yesterday with diet - had a little more of greek yogurt and berries, did not have any eggs and had relatively little fat. End result was I felt hungrier than usual for a non-fasting day and I had a weight gain of 1.6 Kg as compared to a weight gain of roughly 0.6 to 0.8 KG on other non-fasting days so far. Goes to show that with this diet ensuring intake of good fat is very important - keeps the hunger pangs away and results in less weight gain.

    Egg in diet is I think an absolute must atleast for me, as 2 eggs with eggless almond bread at 9 in morning along with one avocado keeps me full all the way till 15.00 and sometimes even beyond whereas yesterday I found myself lurking in kitchen around 13.00.

    Today being a fasting day is easy peasy as my wife or I do not have to think what needs to be cooked for the diabetic in the house. :D

    I also think it is worth sharing a side benefit of ADF - You see my dog is (quite) a bit overweight :( and its mainly down to yours truly never being strict with him but this ongoing diet and a recent visit to vet has caused me to be more strict with him. He is now also on controlled diet and as I am conscious about what I put in my body, I am also careful about what my fur baby eats and as I am not eating on fasting days no scraps whatsoever are heading in his direction. So hopefully he will see some good weight loss in coming days. :)
