Okay I am tired of experimenting on when to take the pills, to take or not take the pills, to take one pill and not two pills, to eat late, to eat early, a snack, no snack. It boggles the mind. If the mind is boggled to much it goes quietly away. This morning because of my "experiment" Friday my fasting was 138. Higher than it's been since I restarted the WOE and cut down to 20 or less carbs a day and now 15 or less. I am eating way to many low carb vegetables and not enough fat and protein to offset the carb intake. Henceforth 128 yesterday morning and could not get under 110 the rest of the day even if my carbs were ultra low . Getting the cold weather lazies and don't want to cook. That is not good. When I don't cook I snack like a bird. All day. Went to bed at 127 and woke up at 138 this morning. Now I am back to a comfortable 101 after breakfast and it will settle in through supper. I just do not want lunch. Who eats lunch at 3:00 p.m.? If I did I would want no supper and that would mess me up again on the Metformin.
What works for me:
Eat breakfast sans any carbs
Eat lunch with 1/3 of the allotted daily carbs
Cut coffee out by 4:00 p.m.
Eat supper at 6:30 - 7:00 p.m. thereby seeing a lower fasting in the a.m.
Drink water even if I hate it
Exercise when I can
Be grateful to God for the knowledge to help myself
