But why? <BR> Hmmmm I walked fine yesterday on the low carbs but ate kind of late and this morning my blood sugar was good.Maybe the higher count on Wednesday was a fluke, due to a low-grade fever or something. When we don't feel well, people with blood sugar issues see it in their counts. I will monitor it and stay lower than usual in my net carbs and keep careful record of everything that crosses my lip...

I am 59 and never felt this good! When I was in my 20's I smoked and drank almost no water...just diet soda. Never ate in a healthy way. Quit smoking in 1997 and gained a lot of weight, so didn't even feel very good then, but now.....Heaven! I feel like I could run a foot race! Over the years there have been enough "exercise times" that I have a lot of muscle mass already (but you...
