Mine, too. I travel to Asia from the DC area twice a year, and note very little difference ... Except for the fact that my numbers are typically a bit higher due to higher carb diet.

I kicked the Diet Pepsi/Diet Mountain Dew habit 18 months ago, cold turkey. I drank less than you, but still somewhere between 60 and 100 ounces most days -- five to eight cans a day, basically.

Today's the day, so here's my update. I've had broth, water, tea and a little 7-Up, and am registering a nice 88 on my glucometer at the moment. Prep is half over (it's a two-part prep).

As John said, sometimes readings from the same site -- the same "stick," so to speak -- on the same meter, disagree with each other. Frustrating, but normal. Watch your trends, which are what will...

Doctor visit - good news, mostly

I've been doing LCHF seriously since January, and I could not be happier with it. My carb intake has crept a bit from 20-30 g/day in the spring to 30-40 g most days in the summer, caused mostly by an...
