    Blood test tomorrow..what to eat tonight?

    I'm getting my first bloodwork since going primal in January tomorrow morning. Is there anything I should steer clear of tonight so as to not skew any of the results? Just eat as I have the past few months?

    TIA

    If you want to see how your diet has affected your health as measured by bloodwork, eat as you have been eating.

    After I read your answer, then my question again...my question seems dumb and your answer seems simple. Thanks :-)

    Actually, my doctor usually tells me not to eat anything since the test is a 'fasted' reading.

    Eat as you normally do with nothing but water after midnight and until after the blood work is done. That includes no coffee or tea either.

    Back when I went to the doctor, this was the case as well. It was always silly growing up because my parents would practically feed me whatever I wanted, long as it was done before midnight. Was a terrible idea, and likely screwed up my readings.
