Went to bed at 75

Woke up at 75

May be there is something for me in snacking on macadamia nuts before bed. ??

Good day all

Realizing this is just an observational study on my part, I need the advice of others that have done similar studies. I started partaking of some Merlot before bed. The first 2 mornings my fasting BG have been in the one teens. This morning, after having consumed the last of the wine last night, I have a 93 (5.2). My conclusion is that the good stuff is in the bottom of the bottle. My first thought was I need smaller bottles or larger Mason goblets. Interested in others thoughts of other possibilities.

Bless you, and thanks Muck. Feeling a little better this morning, was meant to socialise with work colleagues last night but,
full of guilt I pulled out and slept loads. Long day ahead in New York Showrooms, then to airport for 9.20pm flight home...
I don't drink, just can't swallow alcohol at all...but I'm going to upgrade my flight seat and try to sleep. Can't face being stuck in a row of people with me needing visits to the restroom :-P.

4.3 this morning, no food in system and slept extra hours

Last night my BG decided it wanted to be low. No matter what I did it dropped below 3 several times. I cant imagine why it do that. I havent changed what I ate or did, but still I had to work really hard to make my BG steady.
When I finally wnt to sleep several hours later than normal it was steady on 3,5.
I slept longer than normal this day, and woke up with 4,0.

Last A1c 5,4
Always look on the bright side of life

FBS: 67 mg/dl, a bit low, but it was my fault, I ate 300 grams of carbs yesterday! My body is a strange device!

I have few non-engineering friends because I like to espouse absurd semi-truths. Like my old 4 liters of cola diet was a high fat diet! Now you might say that I am so full of poop that my eyes are brown. But wait, fructose is only a sugar to a scientist, not to the human body. To the human body fructose is a sweet neuro-toxin and its' only way of neutralizing it is to convert it into triglyceride (saturated fat). So 55% of 1600 calories of HFCS is 880 calories of fructose which the body converts to about 98 grams of fat to neutralize it. Make sense? Probably not.

Well, I guess I should post this before I wake up and delete it.

89 this morning. Internet down again, so I had the TV on and I never do that in the day until late afternoon and was amazed at the food ads and features on the morning shows.

No wonder Americans eat too much! Shocking really.
