Well said! For a time I could not understand my high readings because of my fixation on carbohydrate restriction, which of course led to using more insulin.
I would advise you to try to have the bulk of your protein early in the morning, because that way you can monitor your blood sugar throughout the day without needing to disturb your sleep. I would also restrict protein portion sizes and potentially increase frequency of protein meals. I would also steer clear of lean meats in preference of fatty cuts not just because they are far more tasty, but also because the fat affects gastric emptying and the rate of protein absorption from the digestive tract.
Logical to a "t." Thank you.
