    Hi @Swiggy

    Very frustrating, but keep persevering - the last week or so my fasting numbers have really come down. 5.6 this morning, my lowest ever. I started reducing protein and increasing fats. Hasn't affected weight loss but blood sugar numbers have improved.

    After a 5.7 yesterday evening I was a high 8.0 @ 4.30am and even worse 9.2 @ 7.30am
    Feels like I'm starting with the flu/cough type virus that is going around here which lasts for about 2 weeks. Bad timing as I have a 2 day long drive to go to a family wedding next weekend.
