    Oh... fasting blood glucose this morning, 4.7 mmol/L (84 mg/dl). Given the room was frigid, that might be the meter playing up. Or maybe it's right, I've no idea.

    And I just ate a cheese omelette into which I unaccountably failed to chop a spring onion.
    It must run in the family, that's pretty much where my BP sits. The only time a medic has been concerned was when the distance between the two dropped.

    Averaging under a thousand calories might be considered overdoing it - that much of a crash diet will almost certainly force the body into a starvation response and a consequential bounce back when the famine ends.

    Re: Diabetes

    The main thing is to develop a diet that is sustainable over the long term. And manage calorie intake according to activity.
    And don't forget to give yourself a little treat, every now and again.

    I have it in mind. Firstly I'm never dropping below 15g/day sugars, so there's a carbohydrate drip on tap. Secondly my £20 ketone meter - admittedly it's not here yet but I ordered it - will warn me if I go past 3mmol/L at which case I'll relax to 50g/day sugars and 1400 calories for a week, at which point I should stop producing ketones but not get heavier. The Wikipedia article is helpful - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Starvation_response

    I do have a significant weight of fat to burn before I stop.

    I think this has to be two-stage. Firstly I have to reach a target BMI nearer to 20. Then I need to stay there. I think the diets for each step are necessarily different.

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.
