    A friendly 5.4 today
    @Ryhia I completely agree with the stress thing putting up BG and also trying to unpick likely causes for fluctuations - there are just so many variables other than food. I also find lower numbers with fewer calories but like you, I don’t want or need to be hungry. I’ll watch yours and @nutribolt ‘s progress with interest. Thanks both of you for reporting back. ( sorry if this is derailing?)

    Morning All. 7.1 can only be due to a repeat of Monday night’s digestion issues.
    Sorry for the disappointments to those who are but cheers for @DJC3 control.

    Today Swipey announced "Hi, I'm Justin so you're 4.9." Protein, cals, hunger and bg levels?. It is always, always the variables. Beyond (probable?) carb link it is all N=1 (David Unwin). Hunger? Trade off of LC for me. Higher, low fat, low carb protein (rarely eggs or red meat, some cheese (Parmesan is good) for snacks) many 750 mls cups of tea and huge salads - cucumber is bulky- are the best I can do. Hence my poor track record.

    7.3 this morning and an overnight average of 7.3 also a flatline of 7.3.. as in no fluctuations whatsoever.

    It can be seen as both good and bad given no fluctuations but readings very close to the threshold of 7.6. I did not have high protein but I did have a raspberries, strawberries and blueberries at dinner time along with fried okra and celeriac. I experimented with keto cheese bread but it wasn't great and most of it went to bin so my intake could not have been more than half an egg. There can also be 3 other variable impacting higher numbers... it was relatively hot and I hardly walked yesterday and I have had very little sleep in last 72 hours about a total of 12 to 14 hours.

    Fasting day today should hopefully get the numbers down.

    Have a great day everyone. :)
