    Hi Cumberland I'm fine thanks still not sleeping well another 4 hours last night but cat nap before evening meal.
    Went on iPad checked out liver dump lots of theories but they all said what's on the forum here we are all individuals and you have to try out what works for you.
    Somebody suggested slice ham and cheese,so no ham in fridge Sod's law eh! but chicken pieces in lemon and Philadelphia cream cheese,just a small amount 2/3 chicken pieces small and around 1 dessert spoon cream cheese.
    BG at 5.10 today 5.8 so just got to keep trying different things,nuts and the fruit and yogurt + dash cream haven't worked so cream cheese slice of cooked meat. Now all I need is a recipe for sleep, lovely talking to you,speak again soon. K

    Hi JRTwalker I'm exactly same so are many on this forum,like you I fast every day from 5 pm to 11/12 pm following day,but it causes a liver dump in early mornings hence high readings.
    Is I've decided to take the advice on here and before bedtime eat some fats and protein like cheese nuts ham chicken etc. you only need a small snack of any of these,but it's trial and error what works for you,so try different foods to workout what suits you. And Good luck. K

    Tried small piece lemon chicken from Aldi and dessert spoon of Philadelphia cream cheese at bed time last night. It's worked better for me than other things I've tried. Trial and Error keep testing!K
