    So it’s my last night here and I though blow it I’m having chips (I also thought blow it earlier and had a blueberry muffin along with ice cream).

    Anyhoos I had the slow cooked pork and there was tons of fat on it so I ate it. I treated myself to chips and I’m so impressed with my sugars. Had grilled tomato instead if the ratatouille! Started at 6 ended up 2 hours later at 7.6!!

    Wooohoo
    The lowest I’ve been after eating all week and I got my chips!!

    Think I need to just eat a slab of fat with every meal (eugh ) but if it works!
    I’m assuming this fab result is due to the fat!

    The fat probably slowed it down rather than cancelled it. Did you keep testing after 2 hrs. A longer small rise or a delayed rise are alternative possibilities. You might have got lucky I guess but going on your other readings I’m doubtful.

    Having eaten them I hope you thoroughly enjoyed them and aren’t led astray once home.

    I have nothing at home that is anti D so that’s not a problem. The cravings will be there but I won’t have anything to eat so I won’t.
    I’ll have to pop to shops for dinner on way home so might get some celeriac to have chips.
