Re: [IPk] Re: ip-uk-digest V3 #1385 - Complications

No , the pump allows greater flxibility with mealtimes.One thing though,I
always have a bowl of porridge for breakfast, the main meal of the day.This
gives me the slow release of energy through working day and tends to steady
out the sugars.A good tip for anyone who likes cakes or biscuits,as I used
to,is to have malt loaf instead,satisfys the cakey cravings but is much lower
in fat and therefore healthier.Regards,Mike.

Ah that makes more sense. Although most people test regularly before
eating, I'm surprised you don't do that. Or do you not eat regularly? :-)
